What is T10 Steel? T10 steel is high-speed tool steel made of carbon and Tungsten. The T in its name stands for Tungsten, while the 10 stands for carbon content, which is 1.0%. T10 Carbon steel is Tungsten-based, and this is why it is categorized as high-speed steel. High-speed steels are very effective in making cutting tools because they exhibit excellent strength, heat resistance, and durability. Because of its tool steel properties, T10 steel is used…

What is 1095 steel ?1095 steel is high carbon steel under the 10XX family, and it is popular in knife and sword blades. As with other 10XX steels, the first two digits represent the primary components in its composition. In this case, 1 represents carbon, and 0 means no other central element in its composition. The last two digits represent the carbon content which is 0.95%. The less than 1% carbon content makes 1095 high…
