A high-alloy, rust-resistant knife steel with a high level of hardness and very good wear resistance. Read more..

1.2695 is a tungsten, vanadium and molybdenum alloyed chromium steel with very good wear resistance. The steel was developed as a more wear-resistant and tougher alternative to ledeburitic chrome steels such as 1.2379. Compared to 1.2379, it offers better cutting edge stability, better edge retention and better suitability for finely ground cutting edges. Among the stainless steels, it therefore forms the link between the 1.4235.03 /Niolox and the stainless PM steels such as CPM-MagnaCut (available from March/April 2022) and Vanax SuperClean. 

The steel can be brought to a high level of sharpness and it keeps a very good level of sharpness for a very long time. Fine blade geometries are also possible, but I cannot recommend the steel for extremely thin laser geometries and edge angles below 30 degrees. 

At cutting angles between 30 and 40 degrees, the steel takes on an enormous sharpness and keeps it extremely sharp without the cutting edge tending to micro-chipping.

The 1.2695 is ideal for powerful workhorse kitchen knives and knives that are not exposed to impact and bending loads.

At cutting angles between 30 and 40 degrees, the steel takes on an enormous sharpness and keeps it extremely sharp without the cutting edge tending to micro-chipping.

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.

Caution: 1.2695 has good corrosion resistance, but is considered rust-resistant and not completely rust-free.

Available dimensions:

4,7x40x700mm

4,7x60x700mm

Weight:

4,7x40x700mm = 1020g

4,7x60x700mm = 1550g

Composition:

Carbon:                        1,2%                          

Chrome:                       11,0%

Tungsten:                     2,4%

Vanadium:                     1,5%

Molybdenum:                1,4%  

Manufacturing method:

Smelting metallurgy

Corrosion resistance:

Stainless.

Condition:

Rolled, sandblasted, annealed

Peculiarities:

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

Recommended heat treatment:

Forging: between 900 °C and 1100 °C 

Soft anneal: Hold at 900°C for one hour, then controlled cooling to 550°C at a maximum of 15°C per hour. remainder furnace cooling. Caution, be sure to protect against oxidation and decarburization. 

Preheat: 850-900°C 

Austenitizing: 1140 °C

Holding time: 15-20 Min.

Quenching: Hot bath at 540 °C (recommended) or in a gas stream with at least 2 bar overpressure 

Tempering: 2 times for 1,5 hours each at 550 °C with intermediate cooling to room temperature.

Achievable hardness: 62-63 hrc.
