Top selling Japanese stainless knives
Stainless steel knives : The most important characteristic and advantage of stainless knives is that they have resistance to oxidation. Even if you leave the knife wet, it will not rust easily, so maintenance will be easier. Stainless steel knives are not as very sharp as carbon steel knives, but they are sharp enough.

Carbon steel has a high carbon content and is characterized by being hard and sharp. It is also easier to sharpen than stainless knives. It rusts easily, however, many chefs demanding sharpness prefer carbon steel knives.
