5160 High Carbon Steel

weapons collection

A favorite of many custom swordsmiths, this high carbon spring-steel is flexible, resilient and will hold an edge and is well-suited for performance-cutting swords.

Tried and true, this alloy steel has earned an excellent reputation for creating resilient and flexible blades with shock absorbing properties and impressive edge-retention. These properties come from the addition of low amounts of steel-hardening chromium and silicon coupled with a notable amount of manganese – altogether, these create a deep-hardened and resistant steel structure when tempered. This is a favored steel of many well-regarded swordsmiths such as Angus Trim and Tinker Pearce and it is also utilized by Balaur Arms.
