    What is the difference between 1095 vs 1095 CroVan steel? Is 0170-6C similar?

        In response to hillst1

    1095 is bacically Iron and 1% Carbon.

    A great Solid Knife Steel.

    Perfoamance will totally depend on Heat treat and Geometry.

    0170-6 - 50-100B and 1095Cr0-Van are the Same Steel

    It is 1095 with a little chromium added for better hardening - A little Moly for Edge Strength and a little more Edge Holding - A little Nickel for some added Toughness and a little Vanadium for better Bonding.

    the use of the term 1095Cro-Van is not a steel term or even any real name for a steel.

    It is something that developed from internal memos between Sharon Steel (The Developer of the formula) and all of the Knife Companies that ordered it back in the 50s - 60s - 70s & 80s. Companies ordered it from Sharon and the name stuck - internally between those Companies.

    It was never a name for the Steel.

    I really wish Companies had Stuck to the real names for that Steel.

    0170-6 and 50-100B.
