Hand forged and ground in Sakai, these are a very good treatment of shirogami 3 which is often associated with less expensive knives. This treatment of shirogami 3 has a longer edge life than what is typically associated with this steel while still keeping the toughness and easy sharpenability.

Shirogami 3 has the lowest carbon content of the three shirogami steels; 3, 2 and 1 with shirogami 1 having the highest. Often toughness decreases and edge life increases as one moves from 3 to 1. 

This knife is discounted for small cosmetic scratches similar to the ones in the detail shot of the ura.
