Why 98% of knife makers pick the wrong steel according to a metallurgist

Published on 31 Mar 2023 / In Film & Animation

Which is the right steel for a handmade knife? Is it 80CRV2 carbon steel or is it AEBL stainless steel? In this knife making video, Graham Clarke of Clarke Knives talks to us about knowing the difference between carbon steel, stainless steel and powder metallurgy (powder-met) steels. We talk about AEB-L stainless, 17N20, 80CRV2 carbon steel, 1084 carbon steel, and many other vanadium-type of steels.
