Yes, I do not know of any common ones that can't be heated and forged.


As Brian says they require at least 50% more oomph to move it though.


Check it with a magnet, unless you make exotic things at work it is likely to be 300 or 400 series.


300 non magnetic 400 magnetic.


304 common architectural grade, 316 the most stain resistant, 440 the higher carbon hardenable version for knife blades etc.


Loads of info on the interweb, wikipedia is fairly direct.....
