I bet you CAN get "black steel"

But at the same time, I bet it'd be too brittle to use in a firearms application?

I mean, wrought iron and pig iron are black through and through... And it's only a few % of other ingredients that make something "stainless steel"...

I'm obviously no metallurgist nor chemist, though. On the surface of it, I'd say that it certainly SOUNDS like it could be done anyhow. Might even BE done for all I know?

Another thing to consider that is IF it can be done / IS being done in certain applications...that the cost is high and the manufacturing all boutique steels are.
