3Cr13 and 8Cr13 steel used in the Knifes and Shovel that I offer

This is a good article about the different steel used in the the Li'Jo Shovel and the Knife's that I offer on my site. I've have had a fair amount of questions about the steel used in my products and I felt this article should address allot of them. There is many other sites that talk about these steels. 

The Li'Jo Shovel uses 3CrMOV steel in it's blade
The camping knife uses 2Cr steel in the accessories ie. spoon / fork  and 3CrMOV for the blade
The 7 function knife uses 8Cr14MOV steel
