Description

22 layer Japanese laminated blade steel 
 
Core layer is Takefu Shiro 2 high carbon steel (Shiro 2 is called White steel by some and is not the same as Hitachi White Paper steel) 
22 layer suminagashi low carbon steel outer layers.  
 
Size:  13 inches long x 1.3 inches tall x .215 inches thick
 
Price is for 1 bar of steel.
 
Working: can be ground as is or forged.  
 
Heat Treat:  instructions will be provided with each bar.  It is a fairly simple HT process and oil quenched.  
 
This is some of the finest Japanese blade steel similar to sword steel and makes great kitchen knives, hunting knives etc.  
 
Takefu Shiro 2 steel is fine grained and takes a razor edge and makes great knives.   Takefu adds Cr(.2-.5%) and Ni(.7-1.3%) to this steel which differs from the Hitachi White Paper steel #2.   
 
**Listing is for San Mai steel bar and not a finished blade blank**
