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: Aluminum

Aluminum handles are just one of the choices available for your Tomahawk handle. Many of the splitting axes contain aluminum handles, and they remain a popular choice for a number of reasons.

One of the biggest benefits that is found with the aluminum handle is its weight. It is lightweight, yet still strong and durable. When swinging the handle it is so easy to accomplish the task, even for smaller people.

The fact that it is so durable, despite being so lightweight, is a feature that is certainly appreciated. When using the aluminum handle type you can expect a quality product that is long-lasting and ready at your disposal without worry of damages.

Aluminum handle have been used for many years, and they certainly are going to be around for many more to come. The handles are usually more affordable than the other choices that you will find available, which is another awesome benefit that you can appreciate.

Another benefit that comes along with aluminum is that it is resistant to corrosion. This includes damages that can occur as the result of weather conditions or cold or hot temperatures. No worries will be noted when it comes to your aluminum handle!

Aluminum handles are easy to hold and easy to grip as well. This is not something that can be said about all of the different handle types. There is nothing but comfort found with the aluminum handle. You will find it easy to use all day long no matter how much it is used.

Of the many handle types, ensure that shock resistance is included. The shock resistance helps with the impact when the tomahawk hits the object intended. Many of the aluminum handles include shock resistance and it is important that the model you select have this included as well.

Rockwell Hardness: HRC 56-60

The Armory Replicas SW079A 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.
