STEEL BREAKDOWN – Blue Steel is a traditional high-carbon steel made by Hitachi Metals in Japan. It is the favourite steel of many knife makers and chefs across the world for its fantastic edge holding ability, toughness, and ease of sharpening. It contains few stainless elements, and as such will develop a patina, and develop rust spots if left wet after use. It requires a little more care and maintenance than something like VG-10 (Stainless Steel), so consider this when purchasing a Blue Steel knife as your first Japanese knife.
