Knives made of powder steel M390

Steel m390, at the moment, occupies one of the leading positions in the production of cutting tools and knives. The material is completely a product of powder metallurgy. The essence of this method is the preliminary grinding of the initial steel elements and their subsequent sintering in special forms at a temperature above 1500 ° C.

This manufacturing method makes it possible to introduce a more significant amount of alloying elements into the steel. This, in turn, allows you to significantly increase the necessary properties of steel.

M390 steel is designed in accordance with European standards. According to them, its chemical composition, in addition to iron, is the following:

Chemical composition of steel M390

Carbon (C) - 1.90%, Chromium ( Cr) - 20.00%, Molybdenum (Mo) - 1.00%, Vanadium (V) - 4.00%, Silicon (Si) - 0.70%, Manganese (Mn) - 0.30%, Tungsten (W) - 0,60%.
