    Nope. Ductile vs Brittle fracture.

    And again, I'm not saying that there was some sort of defect or problem with the steel, or that this is inherently a bad steel for knives, or that the blade should not have broken or anything like that. I was merely trying to explain why we see a broken blade instead of bent one.
