    Hello,
    Does anyone know what steel was used in the Might Oak series of kitchen knives by Imperial?
    Thanks,
    Jerry S.

    I believe the stainless steel used by imperial was a form of 440A while the carbon steel 1055.

    What I know for sure is that all my imperial blades easily take a great edge.

    Btw I was speaking about imperial knives in general.
    I only have two imperial kitchen knives and the steel seems the same as what they used in their folders.

    Imperial was a company of low cost " got it where it matters most " knives, their knives were not fancy but the blades are thin and slicy and they did a good job treating the steels they used.

    Was Imperial part of Schrade? IIRC, Schrade used to use 1084 and I still have some that was bought from their bankruptcy sale by Aldo.
