Thread Name: How old are steel strings?
Subject: RE: How old are steel strings?
There is a big difference between modern steel, from the time of Bessemer on, and pre-Bessemer steel. Modern steel has much more carbon than the steel used for swords and armour. It's been too many years for me, as I've forgotten most of what I used to know about it! I'm sure there are 'Catters with mch more usefulknowledge than I have who can expand and explain.
