Ginsan is a fine-grained, high-carbon stainless steel by Hitachi Metals in Japan. In our opinion, it is the most underrated knifemaking steel and performs far above it's price point when heat treated well. It is a dream to sharpen, has edge retention similar to Blue 2 and does this without any real stress due to it's high stainless properties.
