Steel means Can be sharpened.
Your neighborhood Jeweler can reshapen these, temper the cutting edge, and extend the life span of your purchase. At the prices asked these days, it is cheaper to add a Jewelers Service than just Throw Away. Paying attention to what each pair is rated for will extend their life as well. Some can not cut or shouldn't be asked to cut certain metals or thicknesses. Get to know your tools, ask questions of your suppliers. They have a whole team waiting for your email or call.
