The much loved SKD semi stainless version of the Amekiri Gyuto. For those not familiar with SKD, it is SKD12 alson known as A2 tool steel, wiht about 1% of Carbon content, and only 4.5% of Chromium. Heat treated perfectly by Yoshikane to HRC 63, the SKD very much behaves like carbon steel in terms of taking a very keen edge, the food release and also super easy to sharpen; yet without the need of high maintenance.

The semi stainess nature of the SKD (and alike) means the knife will not rust during normal use and can be left unattended for a short period of time during service, but could still rust if not cleaned for an exteneded period of time. It will take on patina during daily use just like carbon steel. 

===========

The K&S Amekiri (岩刃·雨切) is a custom order by K&S. A rustic Nashiji finish coupled with a highly praised Sanjo region F&F. This knife has a very nice profile, large sweet spot, and feels very nimble in hand. SKD semi stainless core with stainless cladding ensure the highest cutting performance yet the stainless cladding means you will have little worry about the rust.

This maker is a highly regarded knife house in Sanjo, Niigata. Founded in 1919, it is one of the most established top quality kitchen knife manufacturers in the region.
