Analyzing The Steel In Your Knife
Steel is not the only factor that determines the performance of the knife, but it is a major factor that affects how well the knife performs. Even the greatest steel-making techniques will not make a good knife if the steel itself isn't good. Therefore, you will want to know the type of steel used to make your knife before you purchase it. With the right steel, the knife will be able to survive hard use and will be less likely to bend or break during an emergency.
