Nitro V

We present - for your blade making pleasure - NITRO-V.  This steel is based on AEB-L but so much more.  AEB-L has been - and remains as, a premium choice for slicing applications.  A razor blade steel, it also excels at kitchen cutlery and folders as well.  NITRO-V has added nitrogen and Vanadium and now becomes suitable for a broad range of applications adding toughness, hardness and extreme corrosion resistance to the wicked edge achievable on AEB-L blades.

 

Typical Chemistry is;

 

C: 0.680
Si: 0.384
Mn: 0.780
P: 0.0190
S: 0.0020
Cr: 12.980
V: 0.079
N: 0.1098

Early Heat Treat recommendations are similar to AEB-L.  1950F - 20 minute soak - plate quench.  Cryo is helpful but not required.  Tempers at 325F should yeild about 61.5 - 62 - or at around 500 should yeild 58ish - so adjust as per your needs.  Please share your results.

Credit where it's due.  This alloy was put forward by New Jersey Steel Baron.  Nice to see a cutlery specific steel developed and championed by talented knife makers.
