Right now the best steel as far as stainless steel is S35VN stainless steel. It surpasses the S30V steel. But if you want the best carbon steel, personally I would go with D2 steel. It is such a good steel that it is considered a semi-stainless steel.

But to really help you out, it's not the type of steel that's the most important thing. It is the way the steel is heat tempered and hardened. If it is not properly heat treated and hardened, then the steel is worthless as far as knives go. If the HRC is too high for the type of steel/ stainless steel, then the blade will be brittle and chip or break easier.

If the steel's HRC aka Rockwell hardness is too low, then it will easily bend and will not hold an edge well at all.

Each steel and stainless steel have their own HRC tolerance level Going above or below its HRC tolerance makes for a bad knife blade.

The best steel is S30V Steel which is made in America. It contains carbon, high amounts of chromium, molybdenum and vanadium. This steel provides the very best in edge retention and tensile strength. However, you must bear in mind that this steel requires proper care and it is more difficult to re-sharpen.

Can you effectively sharpen a 12in hunting knife with a dremmel? if so How do i do it


Hi Patrick

You CAN, but IMO the dremel would be too aggressive for the job. My grandfather gave me a pocket whetstone many years ago and I use it to sharpen my Leatherman wave tool. Works amazingly well, I can almost shave with it.

(EDIT)
A good reference on how to use a whetstone to sharpen a knife can be found at:
http://www.wikihow.com/Sharpen-a-Pocket-Knife

This particular set of instructions refers to a pocket knife, but the principles involved are the same.

Hope this helps you out.

Where do I find the electric carving knife by toastmaster have used for a long time and now can't find anywhere


I've never heard of the "Nil" part, but the best place to find these older model appliances is on Ebay. I typically hate buying on Ebay, but these older model electric knives are no longer made and hard to come by elsewhere.
I found one where the seller has very good feedback ratings, and the price is about $24 total shipped. Here is a link below, if you decide to go that route. Hope this helps.

How should I care for my stainless steel dive knife so it doesnt go rusty?


. Stainless Steel contains high carbon traces for strengthening, they will almost certainly rust. To ensure that you care for your knife you should rinse it well with fresh water after a dive and allow it to dry naturally outside of its sheath, you can also apply some oil to the blade from time to time, and this will preserve your knife for longer.

Do I need to sharpen my knife?


Every time you use your knife, the edge will become slightly less sharp, and you are more likely to injure yourself with a dull blade than a sharp one, as they can slip while you are working. Make sure you buy good knife-sharpening steel and use it each time before cutting with your knife it will also prolong your knife.

How much money should I spend on kitchen knives?


The most important kitchen knives are the paring knife, the cleaver, the fileting knife and the chef's knife. I personally use a German steel paring knife, which costs around $70, but you can spend as little as $20 and get an excellent knife that will do the job. On a cleaver you can spend a fortune, but you can find very good cleavers at around 10$(try at your local market).
On a chef's knife, the Prices for good knives range from around $40 to as much as you care to spend. I use a slightly smaller Japanese ceramic chef's knife and a German steel knife. As a filleting knife, I use a midlevel knife costing around $40. But there are excellent versions available for under $20.

What's the best way to remove rust or corrosion from your knife?


Rust can be removed by using a good stainless steel rust remover that is organic and dos not harm the metal. Rust on stainless steel should never be scrapped off. This may cause scratches on the surface and thus spoil the look of the metal.
