Blacksmith knives are made of 1084 high carbon spring steel.  They are heat-treated and tempered.  These make a great everyday knife, camp knife, etc.  I have two or three lying around the shop that I use for whatever.  Each one is individually made, no two are ever alike.  I usually start off each day by making one or two of these knives.
