Steel

From PathfinderWiki
Many swords are made of steel.

Steel is an iron alloy with improved durability. It is particularly valued in applications that require hard, sharp edges, such as bladed weapons,1 metal armor, and shields. Most mundane metal weapons and armor are made of either iron or steel, which is harder than stone,2 more durable than silver,3 and heavier than dawnsilver4

Steel is also used in construction, such as in the supports of bridges.5

The abilities of a metallokineticist often manifest in the form of steel.6
