It is difficult to trace when it was and which form. Even how it was produced for the first time and who invented it.
However, it is known that since 200 BC, many cultures were using steel in different forms. Most of the steel was produced on a small scale until the1800s,
Henry Bessemer, a British inventor, is credited for devising a technique to produce steel on a large scale in the mid-1850s. Steel is still produced based on the Bessemer Process, which blow air through molten iron for oxidisation and removing impurities.
