Carbon has a low resistance to corrosion caused by moisture, which means that certain precautionary measures are necessary when using and storing the knives we recommend that you avoid damp environments and that you dry and grease the blade after use. The hardness obtained after heat treatment are theoretically slightly greater in steels that do not contain chrome. The cutting strength is therefore better with a carbon steel and sharpening of carbon steel blades is much easier than sharpening of stainless steel blades.
