If you combine stainless steel with gold, does that make stainless gold?
Stainless steel, I believe, was an actual trade name of a british cutlery company's knives, once the ability to create iron-chromium alloys was mastered. Stainless steel's main alloying agent that prevents it from rusting, is Chromium. The Chromium in the steel creates an protective layer (not unlike rust), which acts as a protectant for the rust-prone iron...keeping real rust away. I am no metallurgist, but I have not heard of gold being used as an alloying agent in common steels. I'm not even sure they would mix. Not all metals can be stirred together successfully. Even if gold could be used as an alloying agent for steel, it would need to be in such a small percentage, you would not end up with a metal that was gold in appearance...so it would still look like steel of some sort. The funny part is, gold is already stainless, and does not tarnish or rust as it is.
Nope, Stainless Steel is a tradename for a certain alloy. Regular Steel, which is formed from Ferrous Oxide (via the Bessimer Process). The stainless part is because they mixed in some other compound to give it unique qualities. Gold, on the other hand, is a pure element, and it can form alloys with other metals, but there are no guarantees what the properties will be
