My 80CRV2 HEAT TREAT
I thermal cycle all my 80CRV2 to reduce the grain size as small as possible and evenly distribute the alloying components. This drastically increases the toughness and overall quality of the steel. These steps unlock the potential of 80CRV2, it is able to reach nearly the hardness and edge retention of 1095 and W2 but is much tougher. I quench my 80CRV2 blades in fast oil for maximum hardness. Models are tempered down to between 57 – 63 HRC depending on their intended use.
