Material Reference Guide
The information below is provided to help compare the various alloys and their respective properties. Please note that not all tweezer patterns are available in all alloys.
CARBON STEEL: Carbon steel is one of the hardest tweezer steels. Carbon steel tips are very durable but because of this hardness, carbon steel tips are more brittle than some of the other steels. Carbon steel is also highly magnetic and stains easily.
TITANIUM: While not as hard as some of the other alloys, titanium tips are very flexible. Another unique property of titanium is that it is 33% lighter than other stainless alloys. Titanium is extremely corrosion and stain resistant, making it the preferred choice for salt water uses. Titanium also has a high heat resistance in excess of 400 degree Celcius and is completely non-magnetic.
STAINLESS STEEL: The common name for various alloys composed of carbon steel and chromium. Alloys considered stainless exhibit good stain resistance and have varying degrees magnetism.
