1080 is a moderately high carbon content forging steel used for beginning knifemakers and seasoned makers alike.  Since 1080 is a high carbon steel, it is an ideal choice for forging and for layering with 15N20 for Damascus.  Whether you want to make a kitchen knife, small every day carry, or camp chopper, you won’t be disappointed by our 1080’s ability to harden, offer good abrasion resistance, solid edge retention, and even the ability to hamon when heat treated well.
