5160 Spring Steel Carbon-Chromium Alloy Steel

Description

5160 is a carbon-chromium spring steel. It exhibits excellent toughness and high ductility, with a high tensile-yield ratio.

Applications

High yield to tensile strength ration, used for automotive leaf springs, scrapers, equalizers, bumpers.

5160 makes a very durable tough knife and is suitable for any knife that needs to hold an edge and be impact resistant such as swords and bowie knives.
