Tool and Knife Steel
Alcobra offers a variety of carbon and alloy steels that are used to make tools and blades. These materials have many uses because of their hardness, resistance to abrasion, and their ability to hold a cutting edge. With a carbon content between 0.7% and 1.4%, these steels are manufactured in controlled conditions that produce great quality.
Heat treating of these steels is important for effective performance. Do to the low amount of manganese, the possibility of cracking is kept to a minimum.
