Carbon Steel

High carbon blade steel is considered better than other steels for knife making. It contains a high carbon, which provides its toughness, strength, edge-holding, and corrosion resistant properties. This premium grade steel reduces the amount of wear the blade experiences over time, making it a popular choice among custom knife makers for forging kitchen knives. High carbon steel is also easier to sharpen despite being harder than stainless steel. Steel stock comes in a variety of sizes and high carbon types, including 52100,CPM REX M4,1080,1095,5160, and15N20, each with unique compositions.
