Blade Type Information: Steel

When you are looking for information on steel blades on tomahawks, axes or knives then you need to check out the selection at Tomahawk Database. They have almost every type imaginable listed there with information such as who manufactured it, what type of tool it is, the type of edge it has, blade type, the length of the entire tool as well as the edge and how much it weighs. They also give brief descriptions of each item.

Knives

Are you aware that there are myriad types of "steel" blades that are actually made from a steel alloy? If the main material in the alloy is steel then it can be legally marketed as a "steel" blade. This is important because different steel alloys have different strengths and therefore are available for use in different applications. For example, Spring steel is popularly used in knife blades because of it having the properties of good resistance to wear and its toughness. For good stability in the edge and resistance to wear some knife manufacturers use O1 steel alloy. These manufacturers include Mad Dog Knives as well as Randall Knives.

Axes

Axe blades have evolved through the millennia. When axes were first invented they did not even have handles. The blade was held in the hand and made of stone. As time passed and technology advanced they began being made by things such as copper, iron, bronze and yes, steel.

Tomahawks

Tomahawks and axes are basically the same tool with subtle differences. First, there is a popular belief that tomahawks are better for throwing than axes. The most noticeable difference though is the fashion in which the handle has been attached to the blade. That being said, most tomahawks now have steel blades just like axes.

No matter what type of knife, axe or tomahawk you are looking for, you can find out exactly which ones have steel blades at Tomahawk Database.

Handle Material Information: Rubberized Slip Free Grip

When you are dealing with tools there is always the possibility that there could be an accident that incurs injuries. Even if an accident occurs with no injuries it can still scare you. It is best to have some sort of slip free grip on these types of tools. If it is a rubberized slip free grip then that type is good not only for safety but also for the comfort of the fit and feel.

Axes

It is very important for an axe to have a slip free grip. Whenever someone is using an axe they tend to be doing so with quite a bit of muscle behind it. Without a slip free grip the axe can fly out of your hands and do serious damage to either people who may be in the area or anything else in the area. With a rubberized slip free grip you not only get that but the rubber makes it more comfortable to hold through all of the impact.

Knives

Knives are a great tool to have this type of handle on too. When you are out in the woods or even sitting on your front porch whittling and especially if you are on the lake fishing then you do not want the knife to slip out of your hand. With this type of grip it will not get slick when it gets wet so there are no worries about getting it all sweaty or it slipping in your hand while you are trying to gut that fish. When you are in the mood to learn more about this subject or anything else related to knives, axes and tomahawks just point your browser to Tomahawk Database and you will instantly be rewarded with all of the information that you ever needed on the subject.

Rockwell Hardness: N/A

The BudK BK1931 Tomahawk 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

Founded in 1988, the BudK Worldwide Company is a corporation located on ten acres of land in the neighborhood of Moultrie, Georgia, that specializes in bladed and tactical and collectible tools: knives, axes, swords, and tomahawks and more, both for display, recreations, and real-word use.

The original founder and current Chief Executive Officer is Clint H. Kadel. Kadel was nineteen years old when he sold his first knife out of a relative's garage in Georgia. The continued growth of BudK comes from a direct result of his constant expansion of the tactical products available from the company.
