These knives have been named Mizu (water in Japanese) as the blue/black kurochi finish gives the impression of cold, deep water. Paired with an oval cherry wood handle these knives represent excellent bang for the buck. Because the blade is not stainless it requires a bit more care. Keep the blade dry to avoid tarnish and if you ever see a bit of rust on the blade remove it immediately with a coarse dish scrubber and soapy water.
