High-carbon steel is a premium-grade steel for knife-making, and Knives of the North has a wide range of high-carbon steel knife blades for you to browse. The significant amount of carbon in the steel provides toughness, strength, edge-holding, and corrosion resistance. It is a popular material for knives because it does not wear easily and is easier to sharpen than stainless steel. Knives of the North offers superior high-carbon steel knife blades for purchase, which you can use to create your own custom knife or use to replace the blade in an existing knife.
