Stainless Steel for Your Hunting Knife

When you’re ready to get a new hunting knife, among the main issues to think about is if you want the blade to be made of a stainless steel or high carbon steel.

There are lots of very different advantages and disadvantages of the two kinds of steels and I am writing this report to share these variables with the reader so that you can make an educated decision when it’s your time to purchase.

As a general guideline, higher carbon steel is harder than stainless steel and will remain sharp for a longer time period. The downside of getting steel that’s so hard is that if the knife eventually loses its sharp edge, it is going to be more challenging to re-sharpen. Stainless steel (which is also known as ” ข้องอสแตนเลส ” in the Thai language ) material has been very useful and successful in many fields, likes valves, grills, kitchen remodeling etc.

Hunters are especially fond of high-carbon steel to their field knives since they require a knife which will keep its edge when skinning huge animals. Re-sharpening a dull knife while the animal which you killed is decomposing can be quite tedious and frustrating.

Stainless steel knives are far pricier than high carbon knives because of the fact that more work goes into creating the knife stainless or “rust proof”.

Many seekers are misled by the term “stainless steel” and feel that their stainless steel hunting knife won’t rust under any condition! This belief is false and lots of hunters are mad to find rust stains and rust on their favorite hunting or outdoor knives after only several uses.
