The hanging hooks are forged out of tool steel, SIS 2258. It is a so called bearing steel and its heat resistance is very high for a tool steel. The hanging hooks are heat treated several times in our ovens, until it reaches an hardness about 60-61 HRC. The bevel is on the inside of the hook and the bevel angle is 26 degrees.

The hanging hook is best used for turning in sidewood, outside and in. It is sharpened, honed and stropped, in other words it is razor sharp. We deliver it without an handle.
