King of Spades lists it as Aircraft steel. I honestly can't imagine owning a steel spade that will rust out..if that's what your concern is. I also can only imagine what the price for a stainless spade might be. I just bought some plate stainless and almost went broke

Wolverine hand tools. A few of the long handled tools in pic are fiberglass, but all the short ones and couple of long ones are all steel
