Why sell high-carbon steel knives?

Well, first of all, you should know that all serious chefs swear by carbon steel knives. That means that if you build a brand around it, the demand is already there. Here are some carbon steel knife features:

Edge retention

First and foremost, carbon steel knives have razor-sharp edges that last for a very long time. The edge retention of this quality knife is one of its greatest assets. 

Sharpness ease

Although carbon steel knives are harder than stainless steel knives, it’s somehow easier to sharpen their cutting edge. Regularly sharpening your carbon steel blade will keep it durable and in top shape. 


A carbon steel blade is extremely hard. This makes it tough and resistant to abrasion and force. That’s why carbon steel knives can hold their shape for ages. However, this toughness makes them also very brittle – if you drop them, they will not bend – they will crack.

Carbon steel vs. stainless steel knives

When choosing a quality knife, whether it’s for chefs or home cooks, the first thing you have to consider is the blade material. Typically, most kitchen knife steel is either carbon steel or stainless steel. Here’s how they’re different:


In terms of performance, a carbon steel chef knife is much sharper and stronger than a stainless steel knife. That’s why most professional chefs choose high carbon steel as their blade choice. 

Ease of maintenance

Here, stainless steel wins. Carbon steel knives have to be immediately cleaned and periodically rubbed with mineral oil to not get rusty. Stainless steel knives, on the other hand, require minimum maintenance and effort. 

Edge retention

When it comes to the ability to maintain sharp edges, carbon steel wins again! It has a razor-sharp edge that lasts a very long time. On the contrary, stainless steel knives are softer and their cutting edge becomes dull faster.

Where to find reliable manufacturers for carbon steel kitchen knives?

Carbon steel knives have to be manufactured properly and from the right materials to last long and have a great performance. So, in this case, it’s even more important to find the right supplier. You have several options to search for manufacturers:

  • Google “wholesale carbon steel knives”
  • Check B2B websites like Alibaba, 1688, or DHgate
  • Get in touch with us and ask for a free quote 

Is it worth buying wholesale or custom carbon steel knives from China?

Ordering bulk carbon steel knives from China can be an extremely profitable brand business. However, due to the sensitivity of this product and the need for quality manufacturing, we recommend doing a fair amount of research if you’re vetting suppliers on your own. 

Although sourcing from China is definitely the most affordable option for your business, not all suppliers offer the same quality and conditions. If the price seems too low for the quality they promise, be careful! Even though it’s from China, the price should match the value you ask for.
