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: 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 United Cutlery BV115 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.
