I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

Hi.  I picked up some Arcos E410-15 stick rod at a garage sale.  I thought it was Lo-hy, but the label was generic, and the end of the container had the real designation.  According to their website, it is an air hardening chromium molybdenum deposit suitable for wear and corrosion resistant coating on steel.  Obviously, this is not for fabbing up jigs or spring fullers.  It might be useful for tangs on martensitic stainless knives, but these are usually part of the blade stock.  Are there any uses, since this stuff seems like it is too specialized to sell?
