    Sheffield steel
    I have always been under the impression Sheffield is simply a location that produces a lot of steel. The products from there can range from El Junko to high quality. Some of the catalogs that offer inexpensive knives tout many of those cheapos as being "Sheffield steel". Would appreciate definitive info on this issue.

    I can't say with any certainty, but I am sure there are different grades of Sheffield steel out there. The Hamlet tools I get are the M2 steel and work well for me. And, I am comfortable in saying the first Hamlet bowl gouge I bought about 6 years ago is the same as the ones I resupplied with 2 months ago. That's my story and I am sticking to it. No amount of pressure or M&M's will get me to change it.
