  • AISI 1095 High Carbon Steel Plate

    1095 steel is high carbon steel , and it is popular in knife and sword blades. As with other steels, the first two digits represent the primary components in its composition.

Product Introduction

◆ Properties

Chemical properties:

AISI 1095 high carbon steel plate, where 1 stands for carbon and 0 stands for the absence of other central elements in its composition. The last two digits represent the carbon content, which is 0.95%. A carbon content of less than 1% makes 1095 a high carbon steel plate rather than a tool steel. Generally, tool steel has a carbon content of more than 1%. 1095 carbon steel plate contains mainly carbon and manganese.

In addition to carbon, the other element in 1095 steel is manganese, making it a basic steel. It has a high hardness and recommended wear resistance.AISI 1095 carbon steel plate is sometimes referred to as spring steel and is typically used for applications involving continuous stress.

AISI 1095
  • C: Increases the edge retention, hardness and tensile strength. It also improves steel resistance to wear, abrasion and corrosion.

  • Mn: Increases Hardness and brittleness.

  • P: Improves machinability and hardness.

  • S: Improves machinability.

Mechancal properties:

According to the Rockwell hardness scale, 1095 steel has a hardness of 55-58 HRC. However, the hardness of this steel varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, depending on the carbon used and the heat treatment process used. With this level of hardness, 1095 steel is classified as a hard steel (carbon steel) and therefore has good wear resistance and edge retention.

◆ Characteristic

1095 steel has managed to remain on the knife-making scene because it makes good blades for knives. The steel is easy to work on, in addition to good toughness, good edge retention, and ease of sharpening.


AISI 1095 high carbon steel plate is the most widely used 10 series steel. Its carbon content is 0.95%-1.03%. After heat treatment, AISI 1095 high-carbon steel plate can reach a hardness between HRC 57-60 and has very good toughness, but is not resistant to rust. For knives, 1095 is a very "standard" carbon steel, with good performance and low cost, with the right toughness and polish. It is mostly used in traditional European style hunting knives, large machetes and military knives.
