Mizu Yaki Blue High Carbon Steel Super with a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 64-65 is considered to be the top of its class in high carbon steel metallurgy. It is ranked above Blue Steel #1 and is second to none in hardness and edge retention. It takes a very high degree of skill to create knives of such exceptional performance and exquisite beauty with a steel of this caliber and is a testament to the extraordinary skill of the artisans. The blade comes with a traditional Japanese handle with a protective wooden sheath called a "Saya," which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan. The octagonal shape of the handle allows for comfortable use regardless of which handed the user is.
