8Cr14MoV can be used to make cold working die steel with large section, complex shape, large impact force and high wear resistance, such as silicon steel sheet punching die, cold cutting scissors, cutting edge die, etc

  1. General Details

    8Cr14MoV Stainless Steel

    8Cr14MoV is a high carbon high chromium martensitic stainless steel. After heat treatment (quenching and tempering), it has high hardness, high wear resistance, and good abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance. This company USE the electric furnace primary smelting, then through LF furnace refining. Remove harmful inclusions and harmful nonmetallic elements S from steel. The purity and uniformity of steel are further improved. The ingot is forged into a billet by the forging process. The role of forging is to refine grain, change inclusion shape, forge internal defects and eliminate segregation. The mechanical properties of steel are greatly improved.8Cr14MoV is used for making fine cutting tools, medical instruments and so on.

    Key Features and Benefits of 8Cr14MoV Stainless Steel

    1. Hardness and Edge Retention:
      • 8Cr14MoV stainless steel offers a good balance between hardness and toughness. The presence of carbon and vanadium helps the steel maintain a sharp edge for an extended period, making it ideal for everyday use and demanding tasks.
    2. Corrosion Resistance:
      • With 14% chromium content, 8Cr14MoV exhibits excellent corrosion resistance. This makes it suitable for use in humid or wet environments, ensuring the blade remains rust-free with minimal maintenance.
    3. Ease of Sharpening:
      • Despite its hardness, 8Cr14MoV is relatively easy to sharpen. This is a significant advantage for users who prefer to maintain their tools at home without professional equipment.
    4. Affordability:
      • Compared to high-end steels, 8Cr14MoV offers a cost-effective alternative without sacrificing essential performance qualities. This makes it a popular choice for budget-friendly knives that do not compromise on quality.

    Maintenance and Care for 8Cr14MoV Stainless Steel

    To maximize the lifespan and performance of an 8Cr14MoV knife, follow these maintenance tips:

    1. Regular Cleaning:
      • Clean the blade with warm water and mild soap after each use. Dry it thoroughly to prevent any moisture from causing corrosion.
    2. Proper Storage:
      • Store the knife in a dry place. Using a sheath or blade cover can provide extra protection.
    3. Sharpening:
      • Regularly sharpen the blade using a whetstone or a sharpening tool to maintain its edge.
    4. Avoiding Harsh Environments:
      • While 8Cr14MoV is corrosion-resistant, avoid prolonged exposure to saltwater or acidic environments to prevent potential damage.

    Applications of 8Cr14MoV Stainless Steel

    8Cr14MoV stainless steel is versatile and used in various applications, including:

    1. Kitchen Knives:
      • Its corrosion resistance and edge retention make it ideal for kitchen environments where cutting performance and hygiene are critical.
    2. Outdoor and Survival Knives:
      • The durability and ease of sharpening make 8Cr14MoV suitable for outdoor activities, including camping, hunting, and fishing.
    3. Everyday Carry (EDC) Knives:

    For daily tasks, an 8Cr14MoV knife provides reliability and convenience, ensuring it can handle a wide range of cutting needs.

    Understanding 8Cr14MoV and Our Innovative VG10 Steel Development

    8Cr14MoV, also called 8Cr13MoV, is a generic Chinese designation for AUS-8. They have identical composition. The naming scheme is quite self-explanatory, but it may make sense to describe it explicitly. The first number designates the carbon content, so “8” refers to approximately 0.8% carbon, Cr13 means 13% chromium, Mo indicates a small molybdenum addition, and V signifies a small vanadium addition. Therefore, 7Cr17 means 0.7% carbon and 17% chromium, 9Cr18 means 0.9% carbon and 18% chromium, and 9Cr18MoV is the same with molybdenum and vanadium. Another steel that is gaining popularity is 10Cr15CoMoV, which contains 1% carbon, 15% chromium, plus cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium; it is a copy of Takefu’s VG-10. These designations are sometimes referred to derogatorily as “Chinese alphabet soup,” although it should be noted that these designations are a slight modification of an earlier European designation system. For example, 9Cr18MoV has existed for a long time in Europe as X90CrMoV18, also referred to by another European designation system as 1.4112. This is the European version of 440B, which has some small differences compared to the American AISI 440B, such as higher chromium (18% vs 17%) and molybdenum (1-1.3% vs <0.75%). 7Cr17 is the same as AISI 440A. To the average consumer, I’m sure all of the numbers are somewhat mystifying, and steel names tend to be more memorable.

    In addition, our company has independently developed VG10 steel and adopted the exclusive innovative RS ESR process. This technology has successfully solved the problem of uniform distribution of the internal structure of the steel and the refinement of carbide particles, significantly improving the internal quality of the steel. This allows our VG10 steel to truly match or even surpass the quality of Japan’s Takefu VG10. This not only helps our customers save significant costs but also achieves a win-win situation.
