"Wootz steel, also known as Seric steel, is a crucible steel characterized by a pattern of bands and high carbon content. These bands are formed by sheets of microscopic carbides within a tempered martensite or pearlite matrix in higher-carbon steel, or by ferrite and pearlite banding in lower-carbon steels. It was a pioneering steel alloy developed in southern India in the mid-1st millennium BC and exported globally." - Wikipedia
Some of the best blades in Antiquity were made with Indian Wootz steel. Somehow we have lost the edge now. We envy and use Japaneese and German steel. Indian steel is nowhere.
We will change this - Indian Steel will cut again.
