About the steel:
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 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 core steel will darken over time (patina) with use.
