Spyderco Bombshell - $424.99. This has been killing me. I extended the austenitizing temperature above the recommended range in the datasheet (1900-2000°F) because of prior experience with heat treating S35VN. Using a freezer saw very little change in hardness when compared with using liquid nitrogen instead. Bravo Concealment - $38.24. I noticed quite a few those in the For Sale section too. And it should be somewhat easier to polish and sharpen than S30V. In the article I wrote about nitrogen-alloyed steel I focused primarily on nitrogen “in solution” which increases hardness and to some extent corrosion resistance. Blade Hardness: 58-60 HRC. If a further increase in hardness is desired for high edge retention or edge stability then temper between 300 and 350°F. M390 tested higher in toughness than S45VN; however, with its quite high carbide volume I have a hard time believing that it has higher toughness in actual practice. Tanto. Carbon in solution controls the as-quenched hardness (more is better), and the chromium and molybdenum in solution control corrosion resistance (more is better). Toughness is better than CPM S30V, but slightly less than CPM-S35VN.Link below has comprehensive heat treat information and much more from www.knifesteelnerds.com, https://knifesteelnerds.com/2019/11/01/crucible-s45vn-steel/, Wrap blade in stainless steel heat treat foil, Bring to 1550/1600F and equalize (let it soak for 10 minutes), Bring it up to Austenitizing temp 1900 - 2000F and hold for 15 - 30 minutes, A Cryo treatment in liquid nitrogen (or dry ice) before tempering will increase hardness.

So was crucible out to create a new premium steel? I have diamond sharpeners. The Mo content of M390 is lower, however, so it is difficult to predict how things balance out when comparing higher Cr vs higher Mo. A freezer is not as effective at minimizing retained austenite but it is better than nothing. May 13, … S35VN has better toughness. from carrying it for a couple weeks and not disassembling and cleaning it off (sweat I’m guessing). S35vn has been being put into high end folders ($300-700) Chris Reeves, Sparta blades ect…, and I don’t understand the reasoning, They’ll clean, oil, adjust, and re-sharpen your knife for free and even mail it back at no charge.

S45vn Sales. 866 s450 steel plate products are offered for sale by suppliers on Alibaba.com, of which steel sheets accounts for 7%, stainless steel sheets accounts for 1%. Anywho, I really hate that your buying a $300-500 knife and they worry about the amount of grinding belts they go through. Cold treatments are less effective if there is a delay between the quench and the cold treatment, particularly when using a freezer. Read more about austenitizing and effects on properties here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. Eventually though, CRK introduced S30V steel, which Chris was directly involved … With the similar MC content to S35VN, S45VN is expected to sharpen and polish similarly as well. It is a step forward from S35VN but its improvements are incremental better not orders of magnitude better. Vanax has higher toughness than S45VN, being similar to S35VN when adjusted for hardness. This hardworking blade is made from CPM S45vn (60-61 rockwell) at a 1/8th inch stock, making the Mini Gunny a mean slicer. Spyderco *SPRINT RUN* Paramilitary 2 CPM S45VN , Forest Green G10. There are three significant things to know about S45VN steel … Blade length 3.775in. The reduction in chromium carbide (M7C3) from nitrogen and niobium helps to offset the increase in Cr relative to S30V and s35VN in terms of excessive chromium carbide formation. This change led to a finer carbide structure and better toughness and machinability than S30V at the cost of a small reduction in edge retention. CPM S35VN is a martensitic stainless steel designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. However, Bob Skibitski of Crucible confirmed to me that the 143% number is based on actual CATRA experiments. Weight 5.6oz They’ll clean, oil, adjust, and re-sharpen your knife for free and even mail it back at … Great prices on fantastic knives! Blade thickness .156in. I’m sorry for the length.

I mainly choose m390/20cv/204p for folders I edc, because it seems like it’s the best option out there right now. - Spyderco Paramilitary 2 Sprint Run C81GPFGR2 Folding Knife, Satin 3.437" Plain Edge CPM-S45VN Blade, Diamond Arc™ Forest Green G-10 Handle $225.00 $157.50 Compare I austenitized the S45VN at 1950°F as recommended in the datasheet but a 2000°F austenitize would lead to slightly better corrosion resistance. Replacing niobium with vanadium leads to a reduction in MC (niobium and vanadium carbides) and chromium in solution (corrosion resistance), and an increase in undesirable chromium carbide (M7C3), in a somewhat similar fashion to nitrogen. The hardness measurements lined up relatively closely with those given in the S45VN datasheet. However, knifemakers and knife companies also wanted a more balanced stainless steel as the high wear resistance of S90V can make processing of the steel and sharpening for the end customer more difficult. 2020 USA Knifemaker, LLC.

MSRP: $229.95. Its chemistry has been rebalanced so that it forms some niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. So we expect better edge retention than S35VN but where it sits compared to S30V is hard to predict with certainty. Austenitizing at 2000F followed by a Cryo treatment and tempering at 400F should result in a hardness of 61-62 HRC, (507) 720-6063 info@usaknifemaker.com 2650 9th Avenue Mankato, MN 56001.

Misc. Therefore, a niobium additions helps improve both toughness and corrosion resistance by increasing chromium in solution and refining the carbide size. Blade Type. Crucible Industries was the first company to have Industrial production of powder metallurgy tool steels in 1970. The “corrosion rating” is based on how much rust was visible on the specimens after 24 hours of 1% saltwater exposure. 20CV/M390 would be just as bad as S30V so that would not be a favorable change from their perspective. Crucible’s first major stainless PM steel was S60V, formerly called 440V, and the earliest record I can find of that steel is from 1983 [1]. The result is that the overall carbide content is not increased much when compared with S30V, though still a bit higher than S35VN. Here are a few more steels in a table for comparison: As discussed in the design section, S45VN has higher Cr in solution compared to S30V and S35VN, but each has a similar Mo in solution. https://www.patreon.com/Knifesteelnerds, Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window), Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window).

But I suspect further experiments would reveal that its toughness is high due to undesirable factors such as excess retained austenite. This version of the PM2 is a limited edition "Sprint Run" offering high performance and a lasting collector's value. ... Sep 3, 2008. It was found that in both cases the retained austenite content was relatively low, so even higher austenitizing temperatures would be required to start to see a divide between freezer and liquid nitrogen. Tesla Model S. Flashlights. S45vn boasts higher corrosion resistance vs both. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. S45VN pm2 (A) never cut, used, carried slightly off centered $170. You can read more about the interactions of different element in forming carbides in this article. Top.
