Was at work the other day pondering how to spend my tax rebate and was thinking about different steels I'd like to try (I'm hopeless, right? ). It got my wondering "what exactly quantifies a tool steel?". Is it in the composition, what it was originally designed for or something else?
I think I've seen 01, D2 and whatever the TKC/Carbonext use referred to as "tool" steels among others. And on the same subject, what is a "High speed tool steel" a la the Tojiro powdered steel range and the Jin knives found at JKI?
Thanks in advance,
