About white paper steel

White paper steel, named for the wrapping paper traditional manufacturers present it in, is a result of the finest steel available being forged with great care and skill by the best blacksmiths. To make quality white paper steel the blacksmith must rely on his own metalworking skill rather than alloys or hardening agents. Thus the process requires the highest quality steel to be forged in the hands of only the most skilled blacksmiths in the world.
