Copper is very soft in pure form by modern metal standards but consider. We have used diamond tipped, very "robust" materials like variants of shapes
made of of raised areas of just stainless steal molibnium, hafnium super-carbide, carbon-carbon steel and raised portions that may contain super
hardened materials, the raised areas on ordinary surfaces deflect the erosion to "slip" down angled surfaces, and are given very proprietary slipper
and augmented angled surfaces to to that and with denser harder surface's with things like cobalt, and stuff like a sputtering or atomic layer of
diamond, called synthetic super sapphire and thats harder and tremendously better then good old diamond.
However make a rig out of it it that will cut threw a solid and very dense steel plate like a razor through paper. I know because I tried it. Got
scared (hold me...) OK sorry, that was pathetic. Very honest but pathetic. Also very true. Spooked the dudes I wanted to impress. Must have, as I can
read some body language I did indeed just backed away, slowly, away like they were wussies (me yes, them not at all) who looked at me as if I just saw
me transform into a man size sea snake, or Rick Santorum. I told them to relax and when I took my better then magic super-hero ring off AND put in a
safe, they did.
Since diamond is so pretty for certain abilities I use an atomic deposition of synthetic supersaph**** (the**** is a code defining its structure and
yup, serial number. Basic stuff usually. That includes serious secrets like endurance, heat tolerance and thats very important as diamond even the
very best and very neat artificial stuff is one of the BEST thermal (heat) conductors known. But almost every day it gets a lot better. But the super
cool stuff is akin to what we can call a laminate, think of Choban* Armor (*oops, misspelled again sorry people and most apologies to the UK that
We copied it and made it, umm cooler and lighter, Still quite classified, but having taken it apart, ah, never mind. Classified or not thats really
Above Top Secret, and no pun, but it is, I assure you what is TS/SCI-SCA *** **** * The stuff that is associated with the "***'... stuff is very
classified and time decay meaning in moments it won't be any more " actualized code words, pro-words, action words and actual specific codes" or my
Moms fabulous recipe for home made potato salad. Thats what is meant by ABSOLUTE NEED TO KNOW and Very Above Top Secret. But not my Moms potato salad
but its so good, it should be.
Lets just say and anyone who watches the history/military channel knows it is a laminated and unique combination of the interesting stuff. And thats
nothing to what we have now. Gosh, I love my job, and if you had a clue that I get to play, ok more or less and get payed for it? If you wouldn't get
s**** and giggles I am sorry, thats what work in time will be. No not diarrhea, but playing and enjoying it AND THEY PAY YOU! That is as close to
certain in time as can be possible. I have no doubt and know that is the power of work and fun being synonymous. Anyone who won't get that in time
will be a fossil.
Oh, regarding copper being soft? It is as said in pure form and even the ancients would ad tin to make bronze. But like just copper alone, and or
diamond tipped stuff, even diamond and carbide steel we use in tunnel boring machine teeth and drill bits, they erode heat up and erode quicker or
just brake (nasty, and DUCK!). So there replaced ad naseum.
So yes early copper in pure form was a pain in the ass (oh the master builders who had hot milton copper pored down their thought because THEY were
dumb enough to tell Pharo "I assure you this WILL work, and given how hard the pyramid stone was? The master builder should have not been such an ass,
and Pharo? Been nice if he had some moral compass, after all crossing the river Styx involved your sole being judged as to "are you a good witch or, a
(sorry) Pharo or an immoral bastard? Problem with thinking ones a God. They will in time have to prove it. Good luck dumb ass god-king.
