What precautions against rust do you take in a hot, humid country? A thoughtful collector reached out to me and said he gave up on owning shirogami knives in hot, humid Singapore (average humidity 85%), which is right at the equator. He buys only aogami super for his few non-stainless knives, is paranoid enough to oil them after every use (and oils even his stainless knives at least once a quarter), and makes sure never to leave non-stainless knives in a blade guard or saya except when transporting them. He tries to be preemptive to avoid having to use rust erasers because they leave scratches.
Would especially love to ask @lemeneid how he maintains his honyakis in Singapore.IF budget is of no issue, try any of these knives. Tried/owned them all and would happily have any of these in my knife drawer. All great lookers and top performers with a range of lasers to workhorses
