San Mai bar stock w/Hitachi White Paper 2 Steel core 3 layer knife making billet

3 layer Japanese San Mai blade steel 
 
Core layer is Hitachi White Paper No 2 high carbon steel 
Low carbon steel outer layers.  
 
Size:  13.77 inches long x 1.3 inches tall x .137 inches thick
 
Price is for 1 bar of steel.
 
Working:  can be ground as is or forged.  
 
Heat treat:   instruction are included with each bar.  It is a fairly simple heat treat and may be quenched in either water or oil.  
 
This is some of the finest Japanese blade steel similar to sword steel and makes great kitchen knives, hunting knives etc.  
 
White paper steel is extremely fine grain takes a razor edge and is ideal for knives requiring the sharpest edge possible.  The bars with Blue Paper Steel core(see our other listing) are tougher and better suited for more hard use applications.

texture of surface creates great patina

turned this billet into a non traditional tanto,
no delams or cold shuts. san mai is perfectly fused together. it did take a very keen edge when hardened.
i chemically plated the blade with 99.99 cu then quenched fusing a thin coating of copper to the outer layers.

Sanmai steel

It looks great and should perform well in the forge. Unfortunately, Covid messed up the shipping time and I was not able to use it for the purpose I purchased it. I’m sure it will be great though. This is not my first purchase with makers.
