Super Blue Steel is the most recent addition to the high carbon steel family. The most familiar of the high carbon steels is the white and blue steel #1 and #2 which are ranked by their hardness and wear resistance levels. Ranked starting from the best the list goes Blue steel #1, Blue steel #2, White steel #1, and White steel #2. Super Blue Steel ranks above all of these with an HRC level of 65-66 and a wear resistance that outclasses Blue Steel #1.
In the hands of master craftsmen the steel can be forged and sharpened into a world class knife that boasts top class sharpness and edge retention. The extremely sharp blade will allow for the most accurate of cuts to be made with consistency and with ease. Furthermore the blade has the ability to perform at that level for an extremely long period of time because of its high wear resistance.
The Yoshihiro Super Blue Steel Clad Gyuto is clad in 2 layers of full stainless steel that provides durability and protection without sacrificing its sharp cutting edge. The blade edge, where the Super Blue Steel is exposed, can patina with use but preventive measures using Tsubaki knife oil and removal methods using rust erasers are available. The knife comes complimented with a handcrafted octagonal rosewood handle which is comfortable for both left and right handed users. A lacquered magnolia wood Saya cover comes together with the knife for easy and safe storage.
