Japanese steels are commonly known by the color that the label wrapped around the steel happens to be (white, blue, super blue). In this case it's super blue steel, also known as Aogami Super Blue. This is considered to be just about the best mix found in a high carbon steel for knife making. Carbon steels can deliver amazing levels of sharpness and Super Blue is considered to be about as good as it can get. It is easy to sharpen and gives a silky smooth cut. The edge retention is stellar, too.

This is a san-mai construction using a softer stainless steel as the jigane, so only the edge is reactive. This makes the knife a breeze to maintain compared to other high carbon types.

The spine of this nakiri is fairly thick at the chin but tapers down really quickly to a nice laser thin profile. The primary bevel is accentuated by some nice bead blasting and finely applied chiseled kanji script. Edge profile is quite flat with little belly. The blade height is about average for this type of knife. It has a really nice balance with the included Maple handle, at just about the pinch grip area. The nakiri can be supplied with a simple saya for protection and storage.
