Subject:
identify steel type

Jack Guzman from Maine
I have some steel bar stock. I would like to use it for a spokeshave blade. Is there a way to test for steel type? Or at least to see if it is proper for the application? I will want to heat treat the blade. I have ordered some o1 steel from MSC but I would like to use my own steel if possible.
