1050 vs 9260 Spring Steel
by mike tong
QUESTION: Can you tell me the different between 1050 spring steel (cold steel katana) and 9260 spring steel (cheness Tenchi) which steel is more stronger?
I know your website don't have cold steel katana, but I'm with cheness Tenchi all the way.
The 9260 Spring Steel (and specifically, how well it is tempered by Cheness) is a lot more resiliant and tougher than Cold Steels 1050.
On the whole, most Cold Steel swords are tempered very well, but tend to be a bit thick. The Cheness 9260 gets the same and a better toughness without needing such a beefy blade, so the end result is - 9260 is the best in terms of durability. I really haven't seen anything else out there in this price range that comes close.
Hope this helps.
