Knife Materials

Stainless Steel

Less expensive knives tend to be made from low carbon stainless steel. As a result of the price they are likely to require re-sharpening a little more often than other materials. Stainless steel will however not stain or discolour.

Carbon Steel

With a higher carbon make up than stainless steel, Carbon steel is easier to sharpen and will retain its cutting edge for longer, as a result they are slightly more expensive than regular stainless steel knives.

Titanium

The three key properties of titanium that make it the ideal metal for knives are its corrosion resistance, incredible strength and lightweight feel. Often mixed with ceramic, silver or diamond, knives are durable and easy to maintain.

Damascus Steel

With a higher carbon make up than stainless steel, Carbon steel is easier to sharpen and will retain its cutting edge for longer, as a result they are slightly more expensive than regular stainless steel knives.
