Hinokuni san is a 31 year old blacksmith from Kumamoto prefecture who recently became independent after apprenticing for Nishida san who's knives we also sell. The steel he uses is Shirogami #1 Gyuto 210mm. The sign of a good knife is the manner in which it is ground and you can see on the 4th photo the excuisite grind this blade has which makes for outstanding cutting action and ease of sharpening.

White #1 Made up of Carbon: 1.25 1.35%, Manganese: .20 - .30%, Phosphorus: .025%, Sulfur: .004%, Silicon: .10 - .20% Almost identical to Blue #1 steel except for the absence of Chromium and Tungsten, this is a very pure Carbon steel alloy. Also known as Shiro-ko, this is very popular steel for high end Japanese cutlery especially in Honyaki blades. These knives take an extremely fine edge, but do not tend to have the edge retention of other alloys. It is very reactive so wiping down and drying should be done after every use.
