Price Guide: POA


  • Generally the steel used contains low amounts of carbon, which is the primary hardener in steel.
  • This method hardens the outside surface or skin of the metal leaving the inner core soft.
  • Once the outer hard surface was lost through wear, the inner soft metal quickly disappears requiring frequent replacement.
  • After the steel is hardened through quench and tempering, it is difficult to form into shapes for various applications.
