Carbon steel is good for making harder and sharper knives that are more wear resistant, easier to resharpen, and able to hold their edge for longer, making it a popular choice for professional chefs.
High-end Japanese knives often use high-carbon steels because they can be forged to a high hardness and are easy to sharpen, making them the preferred choice for both amateur and professional chefs.
Japanese carbon steel is a premium grade steel that contains a higher amount of carbon. Knives made from carbon steel are harder, maintain their sharpness and edge for longer, and have greater sharpening potential. On the downside, the hardness of carbon steel makes it more brittle and prone to chipping.
Carbon steel is considered superior to stainless steel because it’s harder, holds a sharper edge against tough regular use, and is generally more wear resistant. The only downside is that it can require more maintenance. Be sure to oil a carbon steel knife to prevent rust, rinse after use in salty or acidic conditions, and re-edge against a sharpening stone.
