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: 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.

Rockwell Hardness: n/a

The United Cutlery BV114 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.
