    Black Steel

    Does anyone know anything about "black steel" or is it just a gimmick from c*k*t*g?

    Thanks!

    The steel might be good, but the name is a gimmick.

    And just like any other steel, it is only as good as the person doing the ht/grind, etc...kind of like a richmond aebl--good steel (potential), half-ass knife.

    I don't think he's referring to those black-finish Itto-ryu knives, but rather to that other brand which is purportedly made from "black steel" and is finished by a "sword polisher".

    I think he is talking about ******** knives (******** means "black"). These are imported by Ken and sold only through CK2G. They also call the steel "black steel"... They might be good but for 1k and so many secrets Ill never find out.

    Yeah, I was referring to the ones imported by Ken. I was just curious, but I agree way too much money for something shrouded in mystery.

    These are the single sided gyutos I was talking about a while back. They seem way too expensive.

    No, those are the Itto-ryus

    He's talking about the Noob-at-armours
