Learn more about wholesale stainless steel knives
Stainless steel knives have many advantages over high-carbon content knives in the sense of ease of maintenance and corrosion resistance. Due to their features, cutting tools with stainless steel blades are always in demand.
It’s all a matter of preference, but there are several main differences between these two types of knives:
Carbon steel blades are generally harder than stainless steel ones. This gives them a superior cutting performance. However, it has downsides – their hardness makes them more brittle and prone to breaks. Whereas in contrast, stainless blades are softer and more flexible.
High-carbon non-stainless steel knives can rust easily but, you can avoid this with proper and timely maintenance. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is more corrosion-resistant and requires less care when handling.
A carbon steel knife will have better edge retention, which means it stays sharp longer. Stainless steel knives, on the other hand, lose their edge faster and require frequent sharpening.
To name a few, in order from budget-friendly to high-end, stainless steel knives can use:
This is the most budget-friendly option you can choose. A 420 or 420J stainless steel knife will be stain-resistant but soft and not too wear-resistant. It usually loses its edge quickly.
440A knives are stronger and more wear-resistant than 420. They have better edge retention and are easy to resharpen.
These are knives with excellent hardness due to their high-carbon content. They’re tough and hold their sharp edges for longer.
154CM is a commonly used stainless steel type for high-end knives. They perform really well and hold an edge for a long time. They are not as stain-resistant as the 440 grades.
Similar to the previous one but with higher vanadium content – this is an equally great steel that has a better stain resistance and holds its edge sharp for longer.
AUS-6 / AUS-8 / AUS-10 (also 6A / 8A / 10A)
These are grades of Japanese stainless steel, most similar to 440A (AUS-6), 440B (AUS-8), and 440C (AUS-10). The only difference is that these grades have an alloy of vanadium added, to boost their edge retention and wear resistance.
These are some of the most commonly used stainless steel types, although there are many different ones in between. The choice is yours.
Look at these parameters:
- Stainless steel type (grade)
- Price vs. quality ratio
- Blade hardness and durability
- Edge retention
- Ease of maintenance
- Ease of sharpening
- Design and ergonomics
- Corrosion and stain resistance
The quality of your stainless steel knives will always relate to your price range and budget. Naturally, high-end steels cost more and have a better quality than low-end ones. To feel secure in your bulk purchase, you could order a sample first, to get a feeling of the product by yourself.
