I remember hearing that Oregon bars were O1. Most I've seen lately were laminates.

Have seen this debated before.

Could, never, get my head around why a maker would use a cutlery-grade steel on a chainsaw bar when a much lesser (cheaper) steel would do the job.

I was told that my Irbi hunting knife was made from chainsaw bar stock. I dunno.

I made 3 knives out of chainsaw bars,a sthill,an oregon,and an old unknown.The unknown bar is the only one that is a bit brittle,but when the edge breaks it is minute little chunks,but the knife needs refiled often after chopping brush.The thing about chainsaw bars is they have to be super tough and springy to survive being pinched,bent,bound, and sprung by the weight of a tree.The sthill shop owner in town gives me his old bars,and he told me that when a bar takes a bend,you just bend it back,and hit it with a hammer 3 times-good as new.Mine have 14 inch blades,and they really sing when you cut-they are quite noisy.My hunting partners know by the sound when I am using one of my homemades.
