Steel containing ferrite and pearlite is soft. Ferrite is a form of pure iron with a body-centered cubic crystal structure and occurs in low-carbon steel. Pearlite is a finely laminated mixture of ferrite and cementite present in cast iron and steel, formed by the cooling of austenite.

Because it falls on the zone where carbon content is low (less than 0.8%).

But they are also tougher as compared to medium or high carbon steels.
