The morphology of martensitic phase of steel 38KhN3MFA is investigated by electron diffraction microscopy. It is shown that the factor governing the content of platelike martensite in the steel is the rate of cooling from the austentizing temperature. The range of cooling rates in which quenching leads to the largest change in morphology of the martensite phase is determined.
