 Hand forged iron clad shirogami 2 carbon steel with a right biased convex ‘hamaguri’ grind (more convexity on the right hand outside of blade) making for fine precise work with excellent food release. The iron cladding has a fine hazy finish surface which also aides in food release. 

This excellent treatment of shirogami gets phenomenally sharp very easily, while it is not pre-engineered for edge life it is a sharpeners dream steel. It is a blank canvas for the characteristics of different finishing stones. 

Shirogami is a reactive carbon steel. It should be dried immediately after use to avoid rusting. It will patina with normal use. Rust can be removed with a light abrasive.
