This Gohumanosuke Yoshihiro Unagisaki is crafted from Yasuki White #2 high-Carbon steel. This Unagisaki design comes out of Osaka Japan and is specific to butchering Unagi (Eel) from the ventricle side . White #2, also known as Shiroko is a high performing steel that is hard, and very responsive to smoother grit sharpening stones. Yoshihiro master blade-smiths use a traditional forging method of Kasumiyaki. The result is a knife that sharpens with ease and holds its edge. Extremely user friendly, Shiroko is a popular blade choice for single-bevel knives among all ranks of chefs.
NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
