Hey Chris,
As to knife steels, there is a huge amount of information online. Use you favorite search engine. I don't know of one place that I could send you that covers it all.
Here are a few that I have read, but there are many more.




Also both Bladeforums.com and Knifeforums.com have extensive discussions about blade steel.
Go to either site and search on the name of the steel you want to know about. I have not yet dones that and not found a great deal of information.

If you know a type of steel you can find its composition and compare it to other steels here:


The you probably want to know about heat treating and hardening.





Now these are just a few that I have bookmarked. There is a huge amount of information out there. There have been volumes written on the subject and the study of steels and their behavior and properties is a field of study and an entire science unto itself. You could also visit your local library and find a wealth of information on this field of study.

In other words, you just need to dig and spend some time, there are far more than a couple of good resouces, and no single source that I know of is complete.

AWESOME!!!!! you are my idol Phil!!!!!!
