THE “JACK OF ALL TRADES” METAL
Simply put, steel is an all-around amazing metal. It's a metal that is recycled more than any other in the world, with stainless steel being at the top of the list of the most recycled types of steel. It can help to eliminate bad odors by binding sulfur compounds, and while it won't disinfect, it will help lower the water bills. In addition to assisting its odor-stopping properties, steel characteristically will expand and contract in varied temperatures. While the changes won't be noticeable in something as small or simple as a knife, they can be observed in many tall buildings made primarily from steel. Stainless does offer higher resistance to this thermal change when compared to high carbon, and is often used in the aerospace industries for its strength and resistance. In similar ways, it's used extensively in the textiles industries to make touchscreen gloves and static-free carpets — by weaving stainless thread into the fabrics.
Steel … much more than just your kitchen sink!
