There are four basic materials knives are made from: Carbon steel, Stainless steel, High-carbon stainless steel and Ceramic.

- Carbon steel has a very sharp edge though it dulls easily and can stain.
- Stainless steel does not get a very sharp edge but can hold the edge much longer than carbon steel.
- High-carbon stainless steel combines both of best worlds; it allows for a very sharp edge and can hold that edge fairly long, but they normally are expensive.
- Ceramic knives, while incredibly fragile and inflexible, are incredibly sharp knives that hold an edge up to 10 times longer than any metal alloy.

Which of the these 4 knife material do you prefer over the others and why?
