Is there a list of most metals that are used on knives and their benefits and weaknesses? I am getting a bit lost with some of them!
Also, why some manufacturers choose one metal for the core and another one for the clad?

I recommend this excellent and authoritative essay :P

The newest and most complete version is the last post.

Re cladding materials, they can be chosen for aesthetics (eg damascus clad), ease of maintenance (eg stainless clad on reactive core), to ease sharpening or prevent catastrophic failure (soft cladding around a hard core).
