It's true they are more vulnerable to rust and tend to chip when you to not care for them properly, but their cutting power is very different. They are truly deadly works of art.

Stainless steel blades are more resistant to rust, but they bend easier and flex on impact with a tough target. The blades gash instead of chip and its hard to keep the blade perfectly straight after minor use. Their song is a very short, dull, and unmajestic "clang" instead of a long, fine ring.

Stainless steel blades are cheaper and last longer, but they are inferior in quality compared to a hand-forged blade of high carbon folded steel.
I see your point, but you're speaking from the standpoint of a real sword afficionado. I just need the damn thing to stand up to whatever abuse I, and the environment, can dish out, which is why I prefer stainless. For me, a sword is just an elegant machete, for use in clearin brush, or as a last ditch backup weapon for when my guns run dry.

I think he is going to stomp on the other cats tail using the Kung Fu Hustle foot stomping technique. Watch that tail!
