Their is a myth going around the steel can not be soldered to copper
It's all about the flux about the flux about the flux Sta-Clean by Harris image.jpg

News to me, I made a Freddie Kruger glove, the fingers and back piece were copper and the blades were steel, I used plumber's silver rods on it.

Melting point is no where near the same
