This is san mai with a core of super wear resistant steel and 403 on the out side. The edge on this will patina a little over time.
The handle is curly sycamore with a paper micarta ferrule.
I have been using a knife with this steel in my kitchen for some time now and love it. It can be a little hard to sharpen on some water stones. I sharpen this steel with diamond plates with great results.
Price is $810.00 shipped conus.
Love and respect
