Isurian Steel, Alchemy and Blacksmithing.

In the lore for what happens when the properties of isurian steel are transferred to something else, it says this: "These negative properties cannot be filtered out or removed. They include rust (no matter if the end result was metal or cloth or other, it will rust), decreased hardness in cold temperatures as well as increased conductivity (don't go out in a storm)."

But, in the blacksmithing lore, it says this: "Regardless of the material they work with, all metal objects forged by the master will never tarnish, rust or otherwise weaken in anyway."

So, what if isurian steel's properties are transferred by alchemy to another metal, and a master smith worked with it? Which lore trumps which? Would the material rust, or would the master smith somehow surpass that?

Thanks!

Blacksmithing was written by a PC. Isurian Steel by a Founder. The IS Lore trumps the Blacksmithing Lore. It was probably because BS was accepted by a Founder and added in which was unfamiliar with the IS Lore. The BS lore needs altering.
