1 people found this review helpfulI like carbon steel blades and get that with the Super Blue core steel while still having a stainless cladding . I'll still coat the edge with Camellia Oil but the rest of the blade won't require as much maintenance . The fit and finish of this knife is excellent and it came out of the box RAZOR sharp (one of the few that have) , It's big but light and thin bladed enough with the right belly curve so you can rock chop, slice, dice, or about any job you want to do . It's blade heavy, with a handle is long and large enough to fit anyones hand too, yet it's not awkward . The blade slopes down to a thin edge for easy cutting , One thing on mine and, doubt it's going to be on all, is the right side of the blade has all the exposed core steel polished with a micro edge . But the left side has a micro edge and a light layer of cladding still over the core . I can see the core steel line under the cladding and if I wanted could polish the thin cladding off but won't . To me that might work as a plus toughening the edge slightly . It is still a thin edge and double beveled to it works well for me . The Super Blue HRc 64 is going to hold that super edge a long time too (I'm a big fan of the Japanese Blue #2 and Super Blue Steels) . I am very pleased and it is the best of the Carbon Steel and Stainless worlds .
