This line has a fantastic level of finish and presents beautifully in the Suncraft packaging.

Often not quite as high in carbon content, stainless steels have added chromium which acts as a protecting element to oxidizing agents such as acidic foods and water. Generally speaking, when a steel has 12% or above in Chromium content, it is regarded as a stainless steel. The main stainless steels used by Japanese blacksmiths are VG-10 and AUS10, and Ginsan. For their versatile nature and minimal maintenance, stainless steels are very common across many knives manufactured throughout the world.
