What is a Talonite knife?

What is a Talonite knife?

Talonite is actually a type of Stellite; it’s also known as Stellite 6BH. Stellite 6K is another alloy used in knife blades. Compared to Stellite 6K, Talonite and the other Stellite 6B alloys have one-half of 1 percent more carbon, and the H means that the material has been hot rolled and age hardened.

Is cobalt good knife steel?

Technically all steel can rust, but types with more chromium (usually around 12% to 13%) are much less prone to it. Cobalt adds strength to the blade. Molybdenum helps steel maintain strength at high temperatures. Tungsten increases wear resistance.

What is Talonite used for?

Talonite® was developed for and is extremely suitable for hard service applications in rough environments such as salt water. If your instruments were really good you might detect corrosion in salt water after a thousand years.

What is dendritic cobalt?

Boye Dendritic Cobalt is a super-performing, investment cast, non-rusting cobalt alloy. It excels on tough fibers like hi-tech rigging line, deck and anchor line, as well as netting. Because it is not a steel, it cuts aggressively and keeps cutting, is completely impervious to seawater corrosion, and is non-magnetic.

Is Stellite a metal?

Stellite® is a non-magnetic alloy that contains a variety of different metal components with the main elements being cobalt and chromium.

What is Cobalt knife steel?

Cobalt Special (CoSP) is a super high-grade stainless steel for cutlery that provides outstanding corrosion resistance, wear resistance, grindability and workability achieved through a special remelting method that results in a uniform composition and fine dispersion of carbides.

What is Terravantium steel?

Terravantium™ is a highest performance, low field maintenance, super-alloy which is impervious to corrosion, oxidation, staining, pitting in any and all conditions found in wilderness terrains above and underwater.

Is the cobalt sword good?

It can be hardened by heat treatment, and tempered to make the hard edge and tough core that makes a sword durable. Adding a little molybdenum helps a lot for toughness, while cobalt can help with corrosion (not as much as chromium and nickel, though — those go into stainless).

How do you weld Stellite?

They are usually welded using a low preheat temperature (50-150°C) followed by a slow cool in vermiculite. The difficulty with austenitic steels is that during hard facing, carbon can diffuse from the Stellite alloy into the heat affected zone (HAZ).

Is Stellite harder than tungsten carbide?

Stellite is hard and tough materials that are commonly specified because of their superior erosion resistance. Tungsten carbide is the best available hard-facing.
