High Carbon Stainless Steel knives are ones that have between 0.1% and 1.0% Carbon as well as the needed amount of Chromium. They can be hardened through heat treating and will hold a good edge, requiring knife sharpening much less often. Typically these steels will also contain a combination of Molybdenum and Vanadium. Molybdenum is an element that increases a knife's toughness while Vanadium helps maintain a sharp knife edge for a longer period of time. High Carbon Stainless kitchen knives tend to have thicker blades and be less flexible. These kitchen knives tend to be more expensive as high carbon stainless is more costly to use. Instead of buying an entire knife set buying kitchen knives individually can allow a person to acquire better knives over time. Some examples of High Carbon Stainless Steels are 440-C, ATS-34, VG10, and S30V.

The cutting edge or side that cuts is the most important. It is the business or working section of the knife. It needs to be sharp and its surfaces must be smooth. Many times the blade forms a point or tip at the end. For example, a chef knife usually has such a tip.The side opposite to the cutting side is smooth. This is the spine. of the knife. The heel of the blade is the opposite end from the tip and evolves into the tang. The blade continuation that is between the two parts of the knife handle starts st the heel and is called the tang. To put it another way, the tang is the extension of the knife blade that goes between the handle pieces. When choosing a heavy duty work knife, it is best to select one with a tang that is as wide as the knife blade and extends to the end of the handle.
