These knives have Shirogami #2 (White Steel) carbon steel core conveniently sandwiched between stainless cladding, for ease of care. Shirogami steel has good edge life, and is very easy to sharpen, but is a bit more reactive than other steels, so extra care should be kept to keep the edge dry. The blades have an attractive hammer marked finish on the sides, which also contribute to good food release, and each knife is hand engraved with the makers mark.
