1075 is a medium-high carbon steel, Cold Rolled and Annealed, is often used in place of 1084 as it is more readily available.
Many beginners start with our 1075/80, It is a eutectoid steel very similar in characteristics to 1084.
This is a continuous cast, fine grain, fully killed steel (#5 or better). Material is low phosphorus, low sulfur, calcium treated to enhance internal cleanliness.
In the as-rolled condition, material is well suited for abrasion resistant applications and Damascus-making. In the annealed condition, the material may be cold formed (hot forming suggested for critical bends) with excellent heat treat results.
