I usually use AG Russell's steel guide for most of my steel information, but it doesn't include 1085 steel. Can anyone tell me some specifics on it? How does it compare with 1095?

Well, on average it has .1% less carbon.

That is all that the Stats will say.

10% less Carbon.

A little less edge holding - not usually enough to notice but more toughness at any hardness.

The Real Advantage is that 1085 is a WHOLE lot easier to heat treat for most makers.

1085 gets to full hard - all the way through - easier and quenches more evenly with less chance of damage.

Good Stuff.

Property wise, the 1095 will have higher strength, and the 1085 will have higher toughness. It would be very difficult to tell the difference between the two under normal use if they are both heat treated to the same hardness.

There is a certain tolerance to these as well. Admiral steel has "1075/1080 steel" that is between .70 and .83 carbon. Their 1095 is between .90 and 1.04.

1095 also has more Mn. Also, AISI spec doesn't list Si in 1080, but most likely it has some. 1080 vs. 1095 steel composition comparison

My bad I posted 1080 instead of 1085. Corrected link - 1085 vs. 1095 steel composition comparison

1055 vs. 1095 is easy to tell, if they are HTed properly. 1085 vs. 1095 is not really possible, even within the specs you can make them chemically identical, I figure the lab will still tell by Mn content, but in real use, very unlikely.
