Blade Type Information: High-Grade Stainless Steel

Stainless steel come is various grades and the grades are due to exactly what the composition of the metal is. The term high-grade is used to describe steel that is particularly resistant to corrosion and is considered extremely hygienic. The surface of this metal is non-porous, which means it needs no additives or polishes to complete the sealing of the product. This steel will never flake of its own volition. Microorganism such as harmful bacteria cannot adhere to the surface of the steel. Dirt also has a problem with high-grade steel, making the metal seem as if it needs no care.

The steel is highly corrosive resistant and practically heat proof. A good portion of major appliances, such as stoves and microwaves, uses the steel for this very purpose. It is also 100% recyclable, making it popular with consumers who are concerned with the environmental impact we leave to future generations. The steel is highly stable, another reason it is used for such things as food storage and medical grade instruments. The applications for high-grade steel are nearly endless.

Because of the many positive qualities connected with this steel, many consumers naively believe that anything made with high-grade steel is maintenance free. Although it shall not corrode, proper care must be taken to ensure it stays as vibrant as the day of purchase. Refrigerators are a popular high-end item made with high-grade stainless steel. This beautiful appliance sees a lot of traffic in an average household, and anyone who owns one will tell you that fingerprints are the biggest culprit against the surface. Abrasive cleaners are not a good choice for cleaning stainless steel. Keep in mind that the metal is non-porous, cleaning it is as simple as using warm water and a soft cloth.

Handle Material Information: Wood Handle

There are many different types of wood handles that are available for many different things. That being said, today we are going to concentrate only on three.

Tomahawks

Surely everyone is aware that not only were tomahawks used by Native Americans but they also had handles made from wood. Back then wood was just about the only material to make them with. Over time and with many experiments they finally decided which types of wood worked well and which didn’t. Popular theory is that hard woods work best although some did prefer the softer woods because they tended to be lighter and easier to throw.

Axes

Anyone today can go to a hardware store and find many tools with wooden handles. This includes axes. Why do you think that is? Does it make sense to use a wooden handled tool to chop down the very material that it was made from? Some might say no but the fact remains that many axe handles are made from some sort of hard wood…the actual wood may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Knives

Knives look really good when they have a well-polished wooden handle. While they are not resistant to scratches and nicks, they are very strong and a good fit for a knife. You can find them with designs etched or burned into them and sometimes you can even find then with the wood unpolished and raw looking. There are many styles of wood handles for knives as well as many types of knives that they go on.

If this information helped you at all and even if it didn’t you can always find more information about this at Tomahawk Database. Regardless of the name of the site you can find all kinds of useful information not only about tomahawks but also about axes and knives.

Rockwell Hardness: n/a

The High Carbon Steel 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.
