Hitohira Futana Nakiri (Vegetable Knife) Kuro, Tsuchime, 165mm:

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.

The Super Blue core (Aogami super) is a high carbon steel renown as one of best Japanese knife making steels.

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. 

Hitohira Funtana series is a beautifully balanced knife series.
Able to cut through boneless meats, fruit and veg easily, yet not a super thin "laser" making it a bit more durable than other knives like Fujiwara.
These knives are beautiful work horses, with real Japanese cutting power.

*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 with steel wool. Once it has gone you can't get it back!
