What I like about steel #1
Steel is an intriguing material. It is mineral, like clay and glass, and it behaves like them.

When it is white hot it can be pushed around like clay. Take a hammer to a chunk of tough clay and it deforms just like hot steel.  You can bend it at the hottest point by simply wedging one end in a vise and pulling on the other end.
