I hate stainless steel! I hate shiny blades also! When I was a kid knifes were awesome! You could actually sharpen them! :) If we bought a new knife we would take an orange and slice it and leave the juice on the blade to purposefully darken it. If you had a shiny blade that looked like stainless you were not cool. :) I think most anyone who had an old knife from back in the 70's or before would agree that these new stainless knives are crap. I have not seen anything perform close to the old blades in stainless. Today I bought a case CV Sod Buster hoping it will perform like the old knives. What reading I have done the Chrome Vanadium is supposed to be like the old steel. I sure hope it is. Now to find some fruit to get rid of this annoying shiny blade! :)

Q:guitars - changing strings nylon/steel?
You'd have to get a new guitar if you want to use steel strings. If you put steel strings on a nylon stringed guitar, you could snap the neck right off of the guitar. Steel strings have more tension than nylon strings. You can't try the other way around either, since nylon strings simply won't fit on a steel-stringed guitar.
Q:What minerals are stronger then steel?
Well!! Steel is NOT a Mineral. It is an alloy!! A Mineral is a naturally occurring substance. An alloy is a mixture or metallic solid solution composed of two or more elements which is made artificially!! Also we cannot compare minerals and non minerals using strength. The only way to compare is by Hardness.. ON hardness Scale, Quartz, Topaz, Diamond, etc are HARDER than Steel
Q:.308 steel cased ammo in my remington 7400?
Won't hurt anything, but do be aware, if you're plinking with it, that FMJ (and maybe even steel core), cheap ammo offers more chance of penetration and ricochet so be sure you've got a good back-stop so you know where those rounds wind up.
Q:Wear on Non-Stainless Carbon Steel Chef's Knife?
Carbon steel chef's knives out perform stainless in every aspect except 1, care. You can't put them in a dishwasher. Wash, rinse and dry off. Do not keep them in a drawer filled with other kitchen stuff, rather, keep them in a cabinet or block. If it starts to rust you can use steel wool to clean them up, or fine grit sandpaper if you want to retain a fine finish. For your viewing pleasure, a chef's knife I forged from crane cable.
Q:Are steel toed hiking boots worth buying?
Steel toed boots is a safety factor thing. Wilderness workers ie lumber jacks need safety shoes as well. But for long distance hiking steel toed shoes would be impractical due to the weight and wear and tare on The trails and your body. Get the boots you need for work, get the hiking boots you want after the next paycheck.
Q:Is there a good cleaner for stainless steel appliances?
WD40 is great for cleaning stainless steel anything for some reason it protects it from finger prints things so you won't have to clean it as often. WD40 is great for thousands of other uses too, it can remove stickers, dried paint from glass, wipes away crayon wax, lubricates squeeky parts, spray it on your lawnmower or bike before you put it away for winter it'll come out in spring rust free.... so you'll get more than your moneys worth from a small tin.
