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.


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.


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 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: Steel Handle

Sometimes we like things that are great for work and then there are other times when we like things to look nice for play or for our private collection. No matter what your reason is for the types if handles you like steel ones can fall into both of those categories.


Steel handles on axes are great because they are strong, reliable and durable. However when you are using an axe to cut down a tree or anything else it is best that the steel handle has some sort of slip free grip. This will not only make it safer it will also make it easier and more comfortable to hold both when swinging it and upon impact.


Most of the time when people think of tomahawks they picture a wooden handle with the blade kind of strapped on. While they are still made in that fashion you can also get them with steel handles. Most of these are purchased for blade collections. Tomahawks are used for throwing more than anything else and as such they should have some sort of handle with a better grip in order to be both functional and safe. You don't want to be reaching back to throw it and have it slip out of your hand and scalp yourself!


Many knives have steel handles. This is one of the most popular types of handles for knives in fact. They are nicer looking and although they do show scratches they are tough and reliable.

Information on steel handles and anything else related to the three types of tools discussed above can be found at Tomahawk Database. You will find everything in an order that is easy to both understand and navigate. Tomahawk Database is a great source of information for any blade enthusiast.

Rockwell Hardness: N/A

The Scalemaster - Atlas Chipping Hammers Cone and Chise 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.

Atlas Knife Company is small business dedicated to making quality blades by hand. Over the years, the company has improved their forging techniques and the result has been custom made knifes with all the attention to detail you could possibly want. The knives themselves are simple in design, yet the quality is superb over that which you could find from a bigger manufacturer.

A consumer can find Atlas blades in over 100 shops in the continental United States. The price is indicative of a custom, handmade knife. Some of the blades have etched designs on them, the handles mostly made with hard woods, polished to a brilliant shine. You can use these blades every day, never chipping the edge nor marring the surface. As with any stainless steel blade, some care is needed to keep them in a new condition but it is minimal, and although some of the blades are exquisite to look at, they are all made to be used. They are made to cut and chop and should definitely be put to work with some regularity.

Atlas Company does not only sell knives. They also have forges, burners, and etchers for those who are starting to become artisan knife makers themselves.
