Basically, carbon allows steel to be hardened (one of the elements involved). However, in many cases higher carbon content also makes the steel harder to work.



The worst suggestion of your lifetime may be the catalyst to the grandest idea of the century, never let suggestions go unsaid nor fail to listen to them.
