Note: All steel is sold by the foot. When picking the quantity of 2, equals a 2 foot bar. Our steel bars come in 4 foot lengths (CPM steels are in 3 foot lengths). Please provide your cutting instructions in the shopping cart left of the total price in the box “Special instructions for seller”. If no instructions are provided, we cut based on the following:
4 foot lengths will be cut in half and shipped in 2 foot lengths.
3 foot lengths will ship in 3 foot lengths.
5 foot order will be shipped in a 2 foot and 3 foot length.
Any bars over 3 feet are very expensive to ship and will be cut to fit in a 2 or 3 foot box.
CPM S90-V is a unique tool steel made by the Crucible, a martensitic stainless steel with a high volume of vanadium carbides means a blade with exceptionally good wear resistance and wicked sharp edges.
S90V offers substantial improvements in wear resistance over other high chromium tool steels, such as D2, and corrosion resistance on par or above most 440C type steels.
These attributes are the byproduct of its high volume of vanadium carbides to chromium carbides, where one adds wear resistance, the chromium in the matrix provides good corrosion resistance.
A favorite among folder and kitchen knife makers, S90-V is known for taking an exceptional satin finish to match its excellent edge retention properties.
