Gihei Blue 165mm
During the forging process a layer of carbon is formed on the face of the raw blade which is, in the case of this knife, left in place and only removed below the mid-grind point. This adds a lovely rustic look to the knife while further protecting it from corrosion. It is still a carbon steel and will require careful drying between uses.
Wash and dry the blade immediately after use. Knives with carbon steel core are very prone to rust.
