1095/15n20 marble Sanmai billet with nickel

1095/15n20 marble Sanmai billet with nickel


Handmade 1095/15n20 marble sanmai billet with nickel.

1095 and 15n20 steel. 4mm thick 40x25cm.

As you cut through the piece a visible nickel line will appear before the core which is 1095 and will give you a dark consistent cutting edge. once etched the piece will look like the sample blade with three distinct layers above the nickel line, please bear in mind all billets are different and the final finish depends on the blade and finishing process. the sample blade was etched and cleaned with a brush. you can use steel wool, fine sandpaper or a buffing wheel along with different acids to achieve the desired finish. The edges of the billet were etched to show the pattern.

The billet has been normalised and is drill able with carbide drills and decent hss drills. I’d recommend carbide tipped drills for good value when working with laminated steel. Normalizing cycles are recommended when heat treating any laminated steel.

I am always more than happy to make custom billets for special requirements, please message me and ill get back to you as soon as I can.
