*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 3-V from distributor.
"CPM 3-V is a tough and well known Crucible steel with a fair amount of chromium and the ability to hold a very fine edge, but slightly simpler in composition than S30 or S35-VN.
Between the corrosion resistance and toughness, CPM 3-V rarely disappoints and fits a wide range of categories for blades where a more expensive CPM may not be necessary.
Like all Crucible CPMs, the combination of powdered metallurgy and Crucible quality stand out in a performance steel that readily adapts to almost any situation.
