Note that carbon steel is not stainless steel so be sure to clean and dry your knife after use to avoid tarnishing. Even the chemicals in fingerprints can cause staining so give the blade a quick polish with a dry cloth before storing.
If storing long-term, remove the knife from the sheath as leather can sometimes seep moisture onto the blade and cause tarnishing. It is advisable to check regularly to ensure that humidity in your home is not finding its way onto the blade and rusting it.
Carbon steel is a degree more brittle than stainless steel so do not mis-use your knife e.g. by using it as a lever, or you could break it or cause pieces to be chipped off. Carbon steel can always be re-sharpened but it may become a major task if a chunk is missing because someone tried to cut through a metal bolt with a knife.
Reg Cooper occasionally supplies us with Bowie knives that come with stainless steel blades. Reg has told us that stainless steel is equally as good a material for his knives as carbon steel. He says that if the steel has been produced properly then there is no difference in quality.

skilled craftsmen that can produce such an excellent an item such as the
Bowie knife I now own. The knife was delivered today and is beautiful. You can tell it is

I would like to thank Mr Cooper and hope that he is feeling well. What a great knife a really good job, thanks mate, nice one, JA, Somerset.
Bowie arrived by personal delivery by Robert Day. I recieved a phone
call to ask if the knife could be 'Bobbed' round within the hour. I
couldn't have been more impressed with the service I recieved, and to
hear good old Yorkshire slang being used was a delight.
The knife is awesome in its appearance and I'm very pleased to have invested in such a work of beauty, especially from my local 'Little Mester' Reg.
A BIG thank you.
