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.
Produced by Crucible looking to make minute improvements to their S30-V stainless, a retuned chemistry based on vanadium and chromium, the addition of Niobium improved toughness and wear resistance over other stainless steels such as 440-C.
In its annealed state, S35-VN is easily machined to a degree, which is one reason it is a choice among makers who do a portion of their cold work on a CNC or when used for folders.
When considering options, keep a special place for those times S35-VN may be a top choice for a solid knife with performance written all over it.
