  The dragon fang hidden tang broach tool is a double sided aggressive active saw tool for use in knife making. Enlarging the hole for a hidden tang has never been easier.   5160 carbon steel is a steel popular with bladesmiths, due to its forging nature and straight forward heat treatment procedure. 5160 has good edge holding but is known for its outstanding toughness. Often used for hard working knives (hardened to 59- 60 Rc) and swords (hardened to 55-56 Rc) because of its toughness.
