Casted as a blade, yes. They say SS, but the Pitts and easy rust tells me otherwise. A dummie thick "SS" blade shouldn't bend as easy as a paperclip.

Edit: also if i can find it, a buddy wanted to buy a kitchen knife a few years back that is the second part of your comment, casted steel forged into a blade. It's made from "2 powdered steels" casted, then taken and beat up with forging, then grinded and heat treated, and finally edged. The video was interesting but didn't fully explain the processing.
