Hitohira Futana Petty (Utility Knife) Kuro, Nashiji, 135mm
A lot of knives that have a Kuro (black) finish are often soft iron clad. They have no corrosion resistance and may rust easily if mistreated.
This knife is stainless clad but still has a super blue steel core meaning you get the best of both worlds.
A High carbon cutting edge and some corrosion resistance on the outside.
A Super blue steel core will make quick work of prep jobs and hold its edge very well.
The cutting edge will patina and darken with use.
*The core steel in this knife is subject to corrosion, so be sure to follow knife care instructions to help avoid surface rust.
Be careful not to scratch off the black cladding. Once it has gone you can’t get it back!
