Material : Aogami super steel
The edge is made of Aogami (blue) super. It is the best carbon steel from Hitachi Metals, it has the highest hardness of Japanese steel (HRC = 67) and a long-lasting sharpness. Aogami super is not stainless steel, so it rusts, but both sides are covered with stainless steel. However, it should not be left wet to avoid oxidation of the edge. Do not cut frozen food or bones, to avoid chipping in the blade.
The blade is very hard but it is not difficult to sharpen with the stone. It's easier than stainless steel knives. To maintain its function, it is recommended to have a sharpening stone.
Type of knife : Santoku
Santoku is a versatile kitchen knife that can cut meat, fish and vegetables. It is the most used kitchen knife in Japan, and it is also the most exported Japanese knife to the Western market. It is easy to handle because it does not have a long blade like a Gyuto knife or Slicer.
