How steel is shipped
Bars are shipped as 48" bars as long as they can be shipped with UPS. 72" bars are cut in half for shipping, 60" bars are cut to 36 +24 for shipping. If shipped with Canada Post or another carrier, they will need to be cut half (24" for 48", 36" for 72", 36+24" for 60" bars)
If you want steel cut to 4", 6", 8" or 12" pieces, please purchase by the foot and put a note in the cart "Order Instructions" drop down box of the size you would like it cut.
No instructions will result in the longest possible piece being shipped.
CPM-154 is a CPM processed version of 154-CM providing a more even distribution of carbides, which greatly enhances attributes of already popular precursor, 154-CM.
CPM-154 is easy to grind and polish like its predecessor, as well as having improved toughness and corrosion resistance. The more even, finely distributed carbide structure relates to finer, thinner edges and greater wear resistance.
Unlike 154-CM, many makers find it can be polished to an even finer degree to near mirror-like perfection.
Long-time users will easily spend hours extolling its benefits and describing their love for great steel despite whatever types of knives they make, whether fighters, flippers, every day carries, or kitchen cutlery.
