410 Stainless Steel

  • 12"x12"
  • 410 series


410 Stainless steel is used commonly in liners for folding knives. The advantage to 400 series stainless is that is can be hardened. It is slightly magnetic.

Tip: To harden bring it to non-magnetic temperature and then cool rapidly under a fan. This is really simple with a small piece cut to size and using a small MAP gas torch. Heat it up until a magnet doesn't stick any more and then cool it off. It will pick up 5 or 6RC hardness. Usually, 400 series stainless doesn't get much harder than mid 40's so don't expect it to blade hard. The idea behind this is to give your folder just a little more stiffness.

CRA means cold rolled annealed and is important to be in the description. It means the steel was pressure rolled while cold but was annealed again to relief the stress and take it to the softest state from rolling under tremendous pressure. 
HR means hot rolled and this steel was rolled to thickness usually during the smelting process but maybe later. The steel generally will be half or nearly fully hard depending on the type. It may often have mill scale residue. This steel can be easily forged. It can also be ground via stock removal. Drilling a hole in the tang maybe hard to do with out a carbide bit. 
HRA is the same but the steel was later annealed to relieve stress and make it as soft as possible for easier machining. 
Several companies produce "powder" smelted steels. This is a premium smelting process that improves the mixing of alloy content and generally produces a finer grain structure as a result. The powder steels are nearly always annealed and can be assumed to annealed unless noted otherwise.
