1060 Carbon Steel is a type of steel alloy that contains approximately 0.60% carbon by weight. It is often used in knives, swords, and other bladed weapons due to its ability to hold a sharp edge and its durability. 1060 Carbon Steel is a popular choice among blacksmiths and knife makers because of its ease of use and affordability compared to other high-end steels. It is also known for its toughness and resistance to wear and tear, making it suitable for heavy-duty applications.

1. It has high strength, high hardness and high elasticity, poor plasticity during cold deformation, poor machinability, poor welding and hardenability, water quenching tends to produce cracks, large parts are mostly normalized; only small parts can be quenched .
2. No. 60 steel is used to manufacture shafts, spring rings, axles, various washers, cams, steel ropes, etc., which are stressed and work under friction conditions, requiring high strength, wear resistance and certain elasticity.
3. This standard applies to high-quality carbon structural steel bars with a diameter or thickness not greater than 250mm. After negotiation between the supplier and the buyer, high-quality carbon structural steel bars with a diameter or thickness greater than 250mm can also be provided.
