01 steel for damascus billet


Recommended Posts

O1 is a deep hardening steel... while 1095 is very shallow
-not such a good combo

the 15n20 goes well with 1080 ..and welds like a dream... if you keep the 1080 on the outsides, its easy to stick it to itself when you fold.... no Ni oxides to deal with

save your O1 for L6... which are both deep hardening and move at similar rates

besides.. the O1 is expensive... for a sacrificial plate ?..... the 1095 is very cheap and welds a heck of alot easier... it would be a much better choice
