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 3-V is a tough and well known Crucible steel with a fair amount of chromium and the ability to hold a very fine edge, but slightly simpler in composition than S30 or S35-VN.
Between the corrosion resistance and toughness, CPM 3-V rarely disappoints and fits a wide range of categories for blades where a more expensive CPM may not be necessary.
Like all Crucible CPMs, the combination of powdered metallurgy and Crucible quality stand out in a performance steel that readily adapts to almost any situation.
NJSB also offers decarb free grinding for an additional fee if you do not, or cannot, surface grind at your shop.
