    I got a butcher (chef's) knife made from a German sawmill blade. It cleaves frozen meat.

    Not even Stainless, it's Carbon steel. It's my favorite knife to do cooking things with.

    The front loaded blade will chop through damn near anything yet you can still get precision cutting near the haft.

    It won't chop things like a bushaxe will.

    I have enough knives to last me the rest of my life. That would be money wasted for me.

    Thats a Ditch bank blade.
    Had one I used as a fire tool. Ya stick em with the point and drag it into the fire,or use it to move big logs that are already burning to a more advantageous position.

    Carbon will always take and hold an edge better than stainless.

    Julia Child hated stainless.

    High carbon is always the best way to go when it comes to knives.
    Especially in kitchenware.
    I can see stainless in certain outdoor applications though.
