Product Details, Specifications, and Technical Information


- 15N20 is a great steel for knife blades.
- It is very tough and easy to heat treat.
- It has enough toughness to be used at HRC 61-62 and resist chipping. Its primary use is bandsaw blades in sawmills.


Knifemakers who make damascus are familiar with 15N20. The nickel in 15N20 resists acid etching and stays shiny. This is one reason why 15N20 is used in making some damascus. The nickel also adds significantly to the toughness of the steel.
