newbie question

Weld Hard

Recommended Posts

1095 is etches dark in that combo, no nickle in it.

Strapping is generally lower C and will etch darker than 1095.

Generally the higher the C content the less it etches and the more polish it takes afterwards. Alloying metals like nickle and chrome inhibit the etch and take a better polish.
