    Those are some cool stunts!!!!

    The thing is that when steel is broken, it also shows a crystalline structure that looks like broken cast iron. Obviously those shafts are defective, and are likely defective because of the lack of proper heat treatment, but they are most likely steel that's even the correct grade. If they aren't tempered correctly they will have too much martinsite and will be very brittle, and when broken will show exactly like you said.

    I should have gotten some pictures from last week. On pipeline the gate weld tests use what are known as nick breaks, where you cut a section of pipe and weld out like you would for a bend test (the weld in the middle), but you then cut a bit on each side and across the face slightly, making the cut area in the weld the smallest cross section. You then tear the strap in two, and the resulting torn steel surfaces will show if any faults exist in the weld. What the surface looks like depends on the rod used, but it actually shows the steel fracture surface, which looks cool Its handy for quick destructive weld analysis in the field, and takes less than a minute to prep a strap for testing.

    The 3 tall mountains in the background are Eiger, M÷nch and Jungfrau.
    Guess you all know about Eiger Nordwand or " The North Face".

    Those are special to me, because when I worked in Schweiz ,they were an ever present part of my day.
    Walking home from the forest in the evening on clear days, the setting sun would make them rose colored.
