View Full Version : Heiji semi stainless cladding
07-18-2013, 01:08 AM
Just wondering what the cladding is made from on these knives...I understand that the core is SKD12, but have never seen mention of what might be on the outside. Photos of the knife seem to reveal a lamination line there. Anyone know?

it appears to be some kind of stainless steel, given that it doesn't take a patina at all.

I'm not sure but most Japanese use 410 stainless for cladding.
