Blade Type Information: Stainless Steel

Stainless steel was first introduced to the general population in the early part of the 20th century. Sold under various names until well into the 20s, stainless steel became a big seller in the US. The steel itself is made so that it does not corrode easily and it will not rust nor stain when immersed in water. There are a multitude of grades and finishes in stainless steel, each a direct answer to varying applications and environmental needs. The biggest difference between stainless steel and carbon steel is the presence of chromium. This one agent is the difference between a metal that easily rusts when exposed to the elements and the stainless steel finish we have come to expect from the products.

With over 150 grades of stainless steel to choose from, the metal is used in a variety of everyday products. Modern day cookware, cutlery and utility blades, household items such as mixing bowls, precise surgical instruments, household appliances in every size, in automobiles, and even architecture are some of the things you will find that use the metal.

Stainless steel is popular for a very good reason. Apart from the fact that it does not stain nor rust, the metal is durable and easy to apply to any project. The consumer is also able to recycle 100% of the metal. When using stainless steel, one needs to pay close attention at the grade of the product and keep in mind the usage. Not all stainless steel metals are made alike. In the 200 series, the manufacturers decrease the nickel content while increasing the manganese content, making the metal a bit more corrosive. The 300 series, which happens to be the most widely used by consumers, is manufactured in such a way as to increase the level of corrosion resistance.

Handle Material Information: Nylon Cord Wrapped Handle

With things like knives, axes and tomahawks the type of handle it has is just as important as the type of blade. Yes, the blade would seem to be more important but that is just not so. The blade is dependent on the handle and without the handle what would you do?

There are many different types of handles that are available for these types of things but for today we will just list a couple of pros and cons of the nylon cord wrapped styles.

Pros

One of the pros for this type of handle is the comfort of the grip. No tool is easy to use without a grip being comfortable. Another thing about the grip is that the nylon cord actually gives a bit of traction to your grip. That means that it will not slip out of your hand easily potentially causing injury to someone…including yourself.

Cons

One of the cons with the nylon wrapped handles is that they are difficult to keep clean and when they get really dirty they can acquire a certain undesirable odor. Another con would be that if you get a snag in the nylon cord then it can begin to feel a bit funny or “off” in your hand.

No matter what your preference is for these types of things if you are looking to learn more about knives, axes and tomahawks, as well as types of blades and handles then you should head on over to Tomahawk Database. They list nearly every type of these tools along with all of the pertinent information for each one. Be careful though because if you are a true knife, tomahawk or axe aficionado then you might lose track of time browsing the site and spend hours there just looking at all the nice blades.

Rockwell Hardness: N/A

The BudK Apocalypse Survivor Throwing Axe & Sheath has a Rockwell Hardness of N/A

Stanley P. Rockwell inevnted the Rockwell Hardness Test in 1919 while working as a metallurgist in ball bearing plant. Rockwell wanted to measure the uniformity and hardness of inner and outer rings on which the ball bearings rolled. He designed a device that could measure hardness accurately and quickly.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standardized a set of scales for testing Rockwell hardness values. Each scale has been designated a letter and corresponds to a different group of materials. Scale C is used for steel, titanium, deep case hardened steel, hard cast irons and other materials harder than scale B 100.

Knife blades and other steel hardened tools are made from metals that match to the Rockwell C scale. Most blade makers display the hardness number as "HRC xx" or "HRC xx - xx" providing a range, where "xx" indicates a Rockwell hardness number. Not many blades measure over HRC 70. Most functional blades rate somewhere between HRC 56 and HRC 63.

Generally, blades with a lower HRC number don't hold and edge for long under demanding use, but they are easier to sharpen. Blades with a higher HRC value stay sharp for longer, but are more difficult to sharpen. As an example, stainless steel has a HRC higher than carbon steel, but it is also more difficult to sharpen than carbon steel.

Company Information: BudK
