*Steel Cutting Note*
*Steel is sold by the foot*, (EX: A quantity of 3 is for a single 3 foot bar.) we receive the bars in 4 foot lengths (CPM steels are 3 foot) Please provide cutting instructions in the shopping cart left of the total price in the box "Special instructions for seller". Anything over 3 feet will cost extra for shipping and will be cut. If you do not provide specific cutting instructions and order more then 4 feet, bars will be cut in half. CPM steels will come in uncut 3 foot lengths if full bars are ordered (3,6,9 feet etc.) Example: An order quantity of 8 in 1095 .125"x 2" will result in four 2 foot bars. 7 foot order will have two 2 footers and a 3 footer. Please comment/ contact to change.*
Info about CPM 154 from distributor.
"CPM-154 is a CPM processed version of 154-CM providing a more even distribution of carbides, which greatly enhances attributes of already popular precursor, 154-CM.
CPM-154 is easy to grind and polish like its predecessor, as well as having improved toughness and corrosion resistance. The more even, finely distributed carbide structure relates to finer, thinner edges and greater wear resistance.
Unlike 154-CM, many makers find it can be polished to an even finer degree to near mirror-like perfection.
Long-time users will easily spend hours extolling its benefits and describing their love for great steel despite whatever types of knives they make, whether fighters, flippers, every day carries, or kitchen cutlery."
