Ohishi SLD Steel Gyuto (Chefs Knife) 210mm:

The Ohishi blade is made in Sanjo city in Niigata.
Manufacturing handmade forged knives for home and professional use since 1948.
This knife has a smooth D-shaped Ebony wood handle and a SLD steel core with Stainless steel protective cladding.
All Ohishi SLD knives are hand made and have slight differences.
From quality of material, grinds and heat treatment, these are sure to impress and outperform many expensive handmade knives.

One of the best performing semi-stainless knives I’ve used as a chef of 16 years

The performance on these knifes are some of the best I’ve seen and definitely the best in their price category.

About SLD Steel:
“C 1.4-1.6%, Cr 11.0-13.0%, Mo 0.8-1.2% & V 0.2-0.50%. Generally the steels which contain Cr 13.0% or more are called stainless steel. SLD has close to 13. % Cr and are fairly resistant for rust.”
So basically this steel has just enough Chromium to make it corrosion resistant.
Making this steel actually semi stainless steel not a stainless steel.
Chromium is the enemy of sharpening as it make the knife harder to sharpen being “wear resistant”.
This steel is ideal for anyone that doesn’t want full maintenance of a carbon steel knife.

One of the best performing semi-stainless knives I’ve used as a chef of 16 years.
The cut tests I’ve done are extremely impressive and are on par with carbon steel knives.
If you are a professional or a home cook I highly recommend all Ohishi and Tadafusa knives but especially this SLD series if more corrosion resistant.
