. 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.

What are the advantages to buying a titanium diving knife?


Titanium contains no carbon therefore it will not rust as near as quickly as stainless steel and they almost certainly are corrosion resistant, titanium is also a lot stronger than stainless steel knives and they require almost zero maintenance.

What is the best steel for a hunting knife?


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.

There are many metals used to assemble a knife, but the main blades are forged from bronze, copper, iron, steel, ceramics, and titanium. If you're buying a new knife I recommend to use titanium made knife, it's very high quality an titanium is the best stainless steel.

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.

Can stainless steel rust?


Unfortunately yes, any stainless steel product can get rusty under some circumstances although a stainless steel is much more resistant to corrosion and rust. I suggest you to get stainless steel if you don't want to replace your silverware and kitchen product every couple of months.

The door is getting rusty. I believed that stainless steal didn't rust. Is there a way I can remove the spots?


Normally these appliances use brushed steel which gives a stainless steel look.

Get a magnet and run it on the sheet. If it sticks then it definitely is not stainless steel.
However, with wear and tear stainless steel surface does break down causing rust to start.

Stainless steel is rusty/blotchy


Jenn Air makes great products, don't blame them. Your type of stainless steel is a consumer grade that has less nickel-chromium in the mix making it affordable to the consumer. The surface needs to be "pacified", DeBruce Polish will REMOVE THE RUST and PACIFY the surface. We get Debruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.
