Steel 1Definition: A variety of iron intermediate in composition and properties between wrought iron and cast iron (containing between one half of one per cent and one and a half per cent of carbon), and consisting of an alloy of iron with an iron carbide. Steel, unlike wrought iron, can be tempered, and
retains magnetism. Its malleability
decreases, and fusibility
increases, with an increase in carbon.
Steel 2Definition: An instrument or implement made of steel
Steel 3Definition: A weapon, as a sword, dagger,
Steel 4Definition: An instrument of steel
(usually a round rod) for sharpening knives.
Steel 5Definition: A piece of steel for striking
sparks from flint.

Steel 7Definition: A chalybeate medicine.
Steel 8Definition: To overlay, point, or edge with steel; as, to steel a razor; to steel an ax.

Fig.: To cause to resemble steel, as in smoothness, polish, or other qualities.
Steel 11Definition: To cover, as an electrotype plate, with a thin layer of iron by electrolysis. The iron thus deposited is very hard, like steel.
steel 12Definition: knife sharpener consisting of a ridged steel rod
steel 13Definition: a cutting or thrusting weapon with a long blade
steel 14Definition: an alloy of iron with small
amounts of carbon; widely used in construction; mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range
steel 15Definition: cover, plate, or edge with steel
steel 16Definition: get ready for something difficult or unpleasant
