Knife Making Steel bar, 12c27 in 2.5 x 50 x 330 mm
Swedish Stainless Steel 12c27 from Sandvik, a popular stainless due to relative ease of heat treat and good edge retention.
Size of steel bar is 2.5 mm thick, approx 50 mm wide and about 330 mm long.
This will be enough for one larger blade or probably 2 smaller blades.
The steel comes already annealed from Sweden, annealed means the steel is "soft" and workable with hand tools.
It can be drilled, filed, ground and shaped with relative ease. Look up hand filing jig on youtube for an easy to make hand filing jig for making even bevels.
The steel is cut by water jet, so there are no hardened edges that will be hard to cut through.
This steel will need to be heat treated, either at home in temperature controlled gas forge or kiln, or by sending it away for professional heat treatment.
This is the steel used in the Stainless basic knife making kit: http://creativeman.com.au/basic-knife-making-kit-12c27-stainless-steel/
