The KC-500 Series are traditional Japanese kitchen knives made from high-carbon white steel (Shiro-Ko). These knives feature 11 layer damascus made in traditional Honkasumi style with Hou wood handles. They are all hand polished to a razor edge and are the embodyment of traditional knives used for fish and sashimi preparation. For those not familiar with traditional knives please note they are made for right handed use only and due to the nature of the high carbon steel used they will rust if not dried immediately after use. This is not a fault but is characteristic of the carbon steel. Many chefs prefer carbon steel knives because they have the ability to produce and maintain a sharper edge than stainless steel.We recommend only sharpening these knives using Japanese waterstones.
