there seems to be a common misconception about galling.

The most unfavorable combination is two of the same stainless steels with essentially similar hardnesses.

Better would be two of the same stainless steels with different hardnesses.

Best of all is two dissimilar metals of differing hardnesses.

So carbon and stainless are a fine mix. Just keep em lubed as always.
