Gyuto 220mm / 26C3 - Soft steel
Gyuto 220x50mm, San Maï hand forged from 26C3 Core and Soft steel clad in Sheffield.
A common comparison point for 26C3 is Hitachi White #1 (Shirogami #1). Devin Thomas likes to call it “Spicy White.” They are both very high carbon steels with relatively low alloy. Both are advertised for their low impurity content (From Knife Steel Nerd Website)
