Carbon steel is a stronger and harder cutting blade than stainless steel, it is also easier to sharpen. However, it does require extra care and may oxidise if not correctly maintained.
- To avoid rusting, it is recommended that carbon steel blades are kept well oiled. To clean, wipe the blade with a damp cloth and immediately dry and put away.
- Do not soak in water and do not place in the dishwasher. To reduce the frequency of re-sharpening, wooden chopping boards are recommended.
- If your carbon steel blade is beginning to rust, use a scouring pad and and acid, such as vinegar and gently rub it on the affected area. After the rust has been removed, dry the blade, re-sharpen and oil to prevent future rusting.
