Tool steels are made to a number of grades for
different applications. Choice of grade depends
on, among other things, whether a keen cutting
edge is necessary, as in stamping dies, or whether
the tool has to withstand impact loading and
service conditions encountered with such hand
tools as axes, pickaxes, and quarrying implements.
The higher carbon grades are typically used for
such applications as stamping dies, metal
cutting tools, etc.

Tool steels are also used for special applications
like injection moulding because the resistance to
abrasion is an important criterion for a mould that
will be used to produce hundreds of thousands
of parts.
