Carbon steel is the workhorse of the knife industry. In use for nearly a millennium, it holds a super sharp edge and is easy to sharpen. These single steel blades are tough and sharp, with an edge geometry that is like a faster, thinner version of its European counterparts. Light and easy to sharpen, Kikuichi's Carbon Steel series takes a very keen edge due to the fine grain structure of the steel.
⚠CAUTION⚠ - Blade will patina and may rust if left wet. This is NOT a stainless steel. Always hand-wash and hand-dry knives. Use caution when cutting anything that may contain bones, pits, seeds, hard pieces, or was previously frozen.
