Classic "light" steel for the production of damascus steel Lire plus..

1-2 business days

The 1.5634 is next to the 1.2767 the "classic" as a light element for damascus steel production. Depending on the desired properties of the finished Damascus steel, one usually decides on one of the two steels.

The 1.5634 is characterized by the following features:

- Due to the low chromium content, it can easily be conventionally fire welded.

- Due to the relatively high carbon content of 0.75%, compared to the 0.45% of the 1.2767, it is well suited for the production of high-performance damascus steel, since the total carbon content of the finished damascus steel is less reduced.

- With its 2.0% nickel, the 1.5634 draws light silver when etched correctly.    

I can recommend the following damask combinations:

High performance damascus steel:

Very hard and wear-resistant:

- 1.5634 in combination with 1.2562 and possibly 1.2510

- 1.5634 in combination with 1.2063 and possibly 1.2510

- 1.5634 in combination with 1.2419.05 and possibly 1.2510

Hard, tough and wear-resistant:

- 1.5634 in combination with 1.2510 and/or 1.2419

Hard and very tough:

- 1.5634 in combination with 1.2510 and 1.2003

Decoratice damascus steel:

- 1.5634 in combination with 1.2003 and 1.8974 (silver-gray-black)

- 1.5634 in combination with pure nickel, 1.2003 and 1.8974 (light silver-silver-gray-black)  

I myself do not offer a hardening service for the steels I sell. However, I can unreservedly recommend the hardening service of my colleague Jürgen Schanz. He works with a very experienced hardening shop that also carries out demanding heat treatments exactly according to customer requirements. If necessary, contact Jürgen Schanz directly via his contact form.

Available dimensions:








2x30x512mm = 490g

2x40x512mm = 660g

2x50x512mm = 810g

3x30x512mm = 365g

3x40x512mm = 485g

3x50x512mm = 600g


Carbon:                        0,739%    

Silicon:                         0,259%

Manganese:                  0,348%              

Nickel:                          1,94%

Phosphorus:                 0,0039%

Sulfur:                          0,0011%   

Manufacturing method:

Smelting metallurgy

Corrosion resistance:

Not stainless.


Rolled, sandblasted, annealed


The strips are cut with a pair of guillotines and can therefore have minimal warpage, which can, however, be easily straightened.

The 3mm thick strips have some rust film but no rust scars.

Recommended heat treatment:

Forging: Form forging (heavy deformation) between 1100 °C and 850 °C. Fine forging (minor deformation) between 850 °C and 750 °C.

Normalize: 2x Heat up to 840 °C and immediately cool in air to below 721 °C (Ar1). Then 3x heat up to 800 °C and immediately quench in oil until the glow color has disappeared.

Soft annealing: hold at 720 °C for approx. 60 minutes, then cool down in the furnace.

Hardening: 820 °C (4-6 min holding time)

Quenching: Oil, AAA-DA or Durixol V35

Tempering: 175°C to max. 200°C. (400 °C for spring rate)

Achievable hardness: 58-61 hrc.

Note: A deep freeze treatment (-70 °C) between hardening and tempering can reduce the retained austenite content and thus increase the working hardness with the same toughness.
