The purpose of Steel Armor is the same as that of other armors, to provide added protection to the player from damage dealt by weapons. It looks similar to its predecessor, 'Iron Armor', but slightly shinier. Like other armors, it is a clothing-type and thus can be dyed. It is the top-tier armor and provides maximum protection. Steel armor gives an additional 50 health on top of the 100 you start with.
This recipe follows the style of other armor-types.
