Standard or Work Edge?
The angle of a blade edge depends on the intended knife usage and blade thickness.
Most kitchen and house knives are beveled to cut with a fairly thin edge per side. This allows for more precise cutting such as slicing tomatoes, loaf bread, or other soft foods. Our customers enjoy that an T.O.O. sharpened butcher or large cutting kitchen knife cuts cleanly through foods that usually require a serrated knife. The "Standard Edge" generally does not last as long as the Work Edge with heavy usage.
Many work, hunting knives, and other "outdoor" type knives have what is called a Work Edge. This edge, in theory, allows the knife to stay sharper while cutting thick or heavy items like rope, carpet, animal skin, cardboard, etc.
Bottom line, the choice of the edge depends on the customer. Most knives will handle all types of cutting with a Standard Edge, but the customer decides what edge they want for their knives.
Knife Steel Types and Rusting/Corroding
Most knives are formed from either stainless steel (SS) or high carbon steel. The difference is SS is usually a better steel than high carbon, and is almost always a harder steel on the Rockwell scale and is harder to sharpen, but usually the SS edge lasts longer than high carbon.
SS can rust if exposed to the elements that promote rusting, staining, or corrosion, but it takes a lot more to rust/stain/corrode stainless than high carbon steel.
Either type of steel should be hand washed, towel dried and secured properly. It is not recommended to clean knives in the dishwasher, along with being unsafe, it can cause rusting or corroding of the blade.
