This specially forged steel has high cutting properties, much higher from stainless steel. But you should care for this kind of steel - just keep it dry after usage - it may get dark patina with time that will work as steel protection - in any case you should care about your knife, even stainless steel grades have oxidation if you keep it in wet place.
