Blade Type Information: 4140 Stainless Steel

4140 is a type of steel grade used by the Society of Automotive Engineers. It is sometimes called chromoly steel due to the fact that the alloys used in making the metal include molybdenum and chromium. The steel has exceptional strength to it when compared to its overall weight. It is considered superior to its standard cousin, 1020 steel, for it is by far stronger, tougher, and harder. The addition of the alloys in the right proportions also makes the steel extraordinarily resistant fatigue stress fractures.

As one would assume, this steel is extremely popular in the automotive world. The ability of manufacturers to manipulate the outer metal while keeping the bulk of it stable, makes it ideal to form such pieces as gears for cars and planes, heavy duty crankshafts, fast moving pistons, and durable bike frames on your everyday bike. The metal is also used in many automotive axels, during the construction of important aerospace products, and for making high end firearms used by military and civilians alike. You can find this type of metal everywhere; transporting pressurized gas through pipes across cities, saving numerous lives as a roll cage in a wide range cars, structural tubing for high end motorcycles and architecture, and even in military firearms receivers.

All of these great properties come with their own drawbacks. Since 4140 steel is so hard and tough, it is also extremely difficult to weld it properly. A person would need to perform several steps before the initial weld and after the completion of the weld in order to avoid cracking the metal. The chromium in this steel has also been reduced in order to strengthen some of the other properties. Unfortunately, this makes 1440 stainless steel a bit more prone to corrosion when exposed to extreme climates.

Handle Material Information: Thermal Molded Rubber

What it is

Basically thermal molded rubber is rubber that has been heated in order to mold it to the desired. There are many different methods of doing this and each company that makes it might do so in a different fashion from the rest. The result along with the basic process is the same in any case.

Applications

While there are a great any applications for thermal molded rubber today we will only discuss a few.

Thermal molded rubber is a great thing to have on an axe handle. It will give you a sure grip while at the same time it will absorb a lot of the energy from impact meaning you can chop down a tree without your teeth being jarred out of your skull by the force of the axe hitting the t ree. The grip is great because just like tires, if the rubber is in contact with water (think sweaty hands) then it will still provide a sort of umm…traction if you will.

Another application for this type of rubber is on knife handle. Some people like knives with this type of handle for the grip and some like it for the look. Either way the point is that people like handles covered in this type of material…if they didn’t then manufacturers would stop making them with it.

Rockwell Hardness: HRC 56-60

The Armory Replicas KX066G has a Rockwell Hardness of HRC 56-60

Stanley P. Rockwell inevnted the Rockwell Hardness Test in 1919 while working as a metallurgist in ball bearing plant. Rockwell wanted to measure the uniformity and hardness of inner and outer rings on which the ball bearings rolled. He designed a device that could measure hardness accurately and quickly.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standardized a set of scales for testing Rockwell hardness values. Each scale has been designated a letter and corresponds to a different group of materials. Scale C is used for steel, titanium, deep case hardened steel, hard cast irons and other materials harder than scale B 100.

Knife blades and other steel hardened tools are made from metals that match to the Rockwell C scale. Most blade makers display the hardness number as "HRC xx" or "HRC xx - xx" providing a range, where "xx" indicates a Rockwell hardness number. Not many blades measure over HRC 70. Most functional blades rate somewhere between HRC 56 and HRC 63.

Generally, blades with a lower HRC number don't hold and edge for long under demanding use, but they are easier to sharpen. Blades with a higher HRC value stay sharp for longer, but are more difficult to sharpen. As an example, stainless steel has a HRC higher than carbon steel, but it is also more difficult to sharpen than carbon steel.
