White #1

White#1 steel that has been forged completely from scratch brings a raw beauty to these knives. If you're looking for your first carbon steel knife and want that patina then these are the knives for you!

These knives are a carbon steel clad in a reactive soft iron so if you're looking for a stainless option then perhaps these aren't for you, but maybe you're looking for your first carbon steel knife at a price that won't break the bank then read on!

Either way you won't go far wrong with these, these are handmade solely by Nishida san in his small workshop using entirely traditional methods so you're buying a truly classic Japanese knife that performs fantastically.
