Information about 80CRV2 steel
- High carbon steel
- Heat treating 80CRV2 is similar to 5160 steel
- Good steel to use for forging and grinding

CRA (Cold Rolled Annealed) steel has a bright smooth finish and is easy to machine, drill and grind.
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.
