Hanging onto the essence of my favorite old boots. Answered
Okay, I've spark-tested the toes from my old boots;strong white spray, fair amount of secondary sparking...so I'm guessing a mid-range carbon steel. I'm looking to weld up blade stock with them but without a specific composition, I'm at a loss for what would be the best steel to shim into it. Tried looking up the call-codes stamped into the toes...got nothing so guessing they're just stock-control numbers. Does anyone have any more information on alloys used in steel toes?
