Ceramic Blades: Ceramic knives stay sharper longer than other types of blades. Ceramic knives also weigh less than steel cutlery. These blades are also very nimble and easy to maneuver. Since ceramic blades are lightweight, they can
easily break or chip if not handled properly.
Carbon Blades: Carbon Steel blades are typically considered the sharpest knife blades available, and can easily be
sharpened. It is important to note that carbon steel blades can rust, and are susceptible to stains. Therefore, these
blades must be heavily maintained in comparison to other knives, and thoroughly cleaned after each use.
Stainless Steel Blades: Stainless Steel blades are more resistant to corrosion than carbon steel, and are known to be
very durable. Stainless steel is not as sharp as other materials, but since it can resist problems such as rust or
deterioration, it is a popular choice when considering long term use.
High Carbon Stainless Steel Blades: These knives are a combination of high carbon steel and stainless steel. High
Carbon Stainless Steel is considered a high grade of stainless steel. These blades have the best attributes of both
carbon steel and standard steel blades. These blades are stain resistant, and maintain a sharp edge for a long time.
