Question:

Is Carbon Steel a Metallic Material?

I'm not really sure if carbon steel is considered a metallic material.

Answer:

Steel with a lower to medium level of carbon will typically be reserved for metal sheeting for use in construction, due to its increased hardness and malleability.

Carbon and iron are both metallic.... so yes. You leave the iron laying in the forge - and it soaks up carbon atoms from the charcoal - so that as the steeling process goes on, the original iron becomes harder and harder.
