Choosing The Right Blade
It is important that the correct blade material is chosen for the job to ensure that the right steps to maintaining the knife are made.
High carbon blades are very sharp, sharpen easily, and hold an edge very well. Carbon steel blades are prone to rusting and staining. It is important to clean them and dry them off by hand as soon as you are done using them. Leaving them out to dry is a good way to ruin these knives as the blades will rust and corrode.
