Culver Knives



Meriden, Kansas, USA
I use 1084, 5160, W-2 or 1095 steel for my forged carbon steel blades. I make damascus steel blades from any of the carbon steels that I typically use, laminated with 15N20 or O-1 steel. I use ATS-34 for the blades and springs of some of my folding knives. W-2 or 1095 is used for blades that are clay tempered to produce a fancy hamon (temper line).
