Thread: what steels and why

  1. #171
    What is a cryogenic heat treat? And what are the advantages over a traditional method?

    I've just ordered a couple A2 flatbars to try out but i wonder if i should have chosen L6 instead?

    I guess A2 holds a better edge but L6 is a lot tougher?

    Spoke to Hoss and he's got some new steels he's messing around with. Anyone as excited about this as I am?

    This is a great threat. Lots of interesting and detailed information. I wish I would discover it before.
    One thing that I have trouble with is the edge stability vs edge holding.
    As far as I understand
    Edge stability is how of an acute angle the knife can take
    Edge holding is how long it will keep the sharp edge (how long it will wear out)
    The thing is, how those two correlate? Does that mean that if you put same acute angle on AEB-L and Blue super the Blue super will wear before even though it's edge holding is better?
    And vice versa, if you put less of an acute angle Blue Super will last longer then AEB-L??
    If the above is correct, are there any data on optimal/best angle ranges for each steel?

    Best thread on the site IMHO. I wish we could convince you to do a YouTube series on metallurgy. I'd those money at that kickstarter.
