Kohetsu SLD Honesuki has beautiful craftsmanship, great performance, and a very competitive price point. SLD semi-stainless tool steel is well regarded for its great edge taking and edge holding properties. Hardened to 61-62 HRC, the SLD core steel balances acute bevel taking with a high level of toughness to weather tough kitchen tasks. The SLD core is wrapped in a stainless steel cladding. Since the core steel is very stain resistant and the cladding is stainless, discoloration is nonexistent during normal use. A very unique lattice work aesthetic with a polished finish adorns the knife.
