    Steel indentification

    There are hand-held metal composition analyzers out there. But they are out of price range for the enthusiast. >$10k type of price range. Hardness can be done with a benchtop hardness tester ~$1k. Or there is the less expensive file type that are less accurate which are <$100

    Introducing myself. Love all things sharp have since a kid when I collected knifes. Now I can validate my obsession through kitchen knives with the wife. I've been sharpening for years. Got into straight razors around 4 years ago and I've been buying and restoring razors here and there. Corey
