Handmade Japanese blades by Ohishi, handled in Australia by talented knife maker Brook Turner
About the Blade:
Hand made in Sanjo, Japan with over 60 years of experience in handmade knife making.
The Blade is Hitachi Blue #2 steel core with stainless steel cladding and a Nashiji (Pear’s skin) finish.
Stainless steel is regarded by many as not ideal for holding an edge and sharpness. (subject to debate)
A lot of the prized Japanese steels lack stainless steel.
They have little corrosion resistance and may rust easily if mistreated.
This knife is stainless clad but still has a blue steel #2 core meaning you get the best of both worlds.
A high carbon cutting edge and some corrosion resistance on the outside.
The core steel will darken over time (patina) 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
