I love steel metallurgy! I write about steel for knifemakers, collectors, enthusiasts, and all-around science loving people. I complete original research to find the best heat treatments, processing, and steel for knives. And I write articles intended to make difficult and confusing concepts easier to understand with varying degrees of success. If you become a patron you can gain access to articles early, get your questions answered on the website, vote on what research will be performed, and even get a coffee mug!
