Carbon Steel knives will tarnish from oxidation. The result will be a “Patina” which is a thin coating on the knife created as the metal reacts to the atmosphere. This is a desirable effect. The Patina will eventually protect the knife from corrosion. I have seen knives that have turned nearly black from building up the Patina. Always remember to wash and dry the knife thoroughly after every use as carbon steel knives will rust if you let them. Severe rusting will cause pitting that can quickly destroy the knife.
