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: Nylon Vinyl Shock Resistant Grip

When you are looking for the next addition to your tomahawk, axe or knife collection then you might want to check out some of the models that have a nylon vinyl shock resistant grip. However, if you are reading this then you may be wondering exactly what that is and why you would want it. That is not a problem because you will find out right now.

What is it?

Nylon vinyl is a blend of the two materials. Shock resistant means that it will absorb most of the shock from impact thereby saving your hands, arms, shoulders and back from being affected as badly as they would without it. Grip means just what it sounds like. It is the part of the tool that you will grip when using it. When you put all of those together you get a grip made from a nylon vinyl blend that will absorb the shock from impact.

Why would you like this?

There are many reasons that you would like this. One reason will more than likely be that shock resistant part. That is always nice. Another reason might be its durability. There is also the fact that a nylon vinyl blend will not slip off the handle. This is also a great type of handle to have whether you are in the woods, on the water or even at home. It will stay in your hands where it belongs even when it is wet. This makes it a bit safer than some other kinds of handles.

Whether you are pro nylon vinyl shock resistant or anti, you can always find out more information about this and any other type of handle for axes, knives and tomahawks at Tomahawk Database. Also check them out when you have questions about any types of blades.

Rockwell Hardness: HRC 54-59

The United Cutlery UC2603 Tomahawk has a Rockwell Hardness of HRC 54-59

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.
