The XX-60 refers the hardness. Most steels have a range of usable hardnesses so its rare to see a steel trademark linked to a single application/use case. To me this suggests its a proprietary steel or a commonly available steel simply masked with a trade name for this specific application.Kashima RS-60 is a series of knives with really nice features that are manufactured in the Japanese knife town Seki City. The knives are thin and light and are comfortable in the hand thanks to the octagonal shaft of walnut. The steel in the blades is called RS-60, which is a stainless steel single steel steel hardened to 60 HRC. In other words, it is a very hard steel that holds sharp sharpness while it is easy to tighten. Thanks to the very thin blade, this is a knife that shines very well as the soft shapes make the knife comfortable to work with.
