Here is a quote from the site:p nut said:Isn't stainless steel inherently weaker? I've avoided buying stainless knives and favor O1 or D2 steel knives due to strength. Yes, I know the stainless tubing will not spontaneously combust, but regular ol'steel won't rust to vapors, either.
And I know the cost is usually a big factor in stainless, at which point, I'd personally go Ti.
Yeah, that was more directed to others, as there is a common misconception that stainless is rust proof. I'm not totally against stainless. My revolver is stainless and I chose that over blued steel due to the rust resistance. (although if kept up in cleaning, neither should rust, but stainless is a little more maintenance-free).mo0se said:Yes I'm aware of that..same thing with unprotected alu can oxidize..just thought
it would resist corrosion better than say 4130 or 853..
