    Question! Ion plated steel?

    Ive scoured the internet but i cannot find any information… what is the purpose of Ion plating on a kitchen knife? The knife in question is the seisuke SK-85 ion plated nakiri japanese knife (175mm with white wood handle) referenced via picture. Is it just for looks? Is this brand reputable?
