About 65Mn Steel

65Mn is a readily-available Chinese steel that is formulated to provide good wear resistance and hardness. The medium-high carbon content makes for a high degree of toughness and resilience, while the manganese, in addition to improving these properties, improves the hot-working characteristics of the steel, making it an excellent candidate for forged sword blades.

65Mn Steel Composition: 0.62-0.7C 0.9-1.2Mn 0.17-0.37Si
