Carbon steel is a type of
steel with a high
content of carbon in the structure. Its characteristics
are: high hardness and reduced corrosion
resistance. Therefore, carbon
steel requires special
maintenance to secure the blade from corrosion, for which - in the case of samurai
swords - clove oil is used.
