Easy alloy composition comparison with bar graph in 3 modes: mass percentage, molar masses and atomic count per 1000 atoms.
If you have suggestions for improvement, please contact me. Posting in the review that there's a room for improvement doesn't help me at all, I am not a designer, but a software engineer.
Please report missing alloys, as in either post the alloy name, or contact me. Complaining in the review "I didn't find what I wanted" means very little.
If you encounter any problems using the app, please contact me using email. Posting in the review you have a problem, won't give me enough information to fix it.
Sorry, there will be no translations to any language. There is no team, I am just one person collecting steel data and coding the app on web and mobile platforms. I have neither time nor resources to keep constantly translating large database.
Case CV has been the database for a long time. Search for Case does show in the results. Case isn't the steel maker though.

An encyclopaedia of metal
The best app out there for anyone working with, using or interested in metal. For those who forge, collect knives, or work with tools. Composition, comparisons, graphs, links, updates, legends...this app is extremely powerful, helpful and educational.
This is a great help for anyone. Novice to expert can benefit from the info stored in this app. It can equip you with helpful info for both the purchase of a blade and in accessing its value. Truly a great source for any knife enthusiast.
I use this before I buy any knife. Explains how different elements effect the performance of the blade.
