Masakage Yuki knives are handmade with carbon steel clad with stainless steel. This is a great way to make a knife as you get all the performance of carbon steel (a very long lived edge, ease of sharpening and a silkiness when cutting) without most of the maintenance issues as cladding with stainless steel reduces the risk of rusting.
These knives have been named Yuki (snow) as the nashiji finish looks like snow and paired with the white and red handle gives an overall wintery look.
