*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 S35-VN from distributor.
"Produced by Crucible looking to make minute improvements to their S30-V stainless, a retuned chemistry based on vanadium and chromium, the addition of Niobium improved toughness and wear resistance over other stainless steels such as 440-C.
In its annealed state, S35-VN is easily machined to a degree, which is one reason it is a choice among makers who do a portion of their cold work on a CNC or when used for folders.
When considering options, keep a special place for those times S35-VN may be a top choice for a solid knife with performance written all over it."
