Shirogami 1

Named for the white colored paper put on billets of steel at the Hitachi factory. Shirogami (white) steels are graded as  #1, #2 and #3. #1 has the highest carbon content and #3 the lowest. Generally speaking, #1 will have the best edge formation and will hold its edge longest but will be the most brittle of the Shirogami steels.

Shirogami steel is a very fine grained carbon steel made from a very low contaminate iron, and loved for its ease of sharpening and ability to take a very fine razor sharp edge quickly. Shirogami steel is a favorite of sushi chefs for knives in which a very fine finish is essential.

Not the easiest steel to forge and temper properly, Shirogami steel done well is a testimony to a smith’s skill. Shirogami steel is fairly reactive and requires care to avoid rust as it has virtually no rust resistance.
