wondering why the steel isn鈥檛 mention wink 馃槈 there鈥檚 probably a reason

looks like a cool axe fox makes some good gear but if your shopping for any blade axe knife etc and they won鈥檛 tell u what steel there using that makes me think it鈥檚 cheap crap steel because when good or even pretty good steel is used they definitely make sure they tell u so I鈥檓 guessing this steel is subpar and would take my 馃挵 elsewhere

Just an FYI - this looks like a comment about a specific product, but it was created as a new Talk post. I think maybe this is the drop you were trying to comment on? https://www.massdrop.com/buy/fox-knives-trekking-axe-682m A quick Google search turns this up on the Boker website: https://www.bokerusa.com/axes/trekking-axe-682/m-09fx005 The steel is Sandvik 12C27, I've posted a comparison below to 440C for reference - you can run your own graphs at Zknives.com, which is a super cool website for steel comparisons.

With axes and hatchets (and cleavers), most manufacturers use a steel and heat treatment that are optimized for toughness to make the blade resistant to chipping with heavy impact; this is a different priority than with thinner blades that have the primary function of cutting/slicing. Anyways, it wasn't omitted on purpose - Normally, if you spot a missing spec and post in the discussion for that product, a buyer will research as needed and add it. Hope this info helps, thanks for posting.
