The Hitohira Futana series are a great introduction into the world of Japanese kitchen knives. They offer very high quality for a reasonable price.
The Futana S3 line is made with a Yasuki Silver #3 (Ginsan) stainless core-steel and a softer stainless cladding. Full stainless blades with great performance and easy maintenance. The S3 line is made with Nashiji (rustic) and with Migaki (polished) finish.
The Futana SB line is made up of a Yasuki Blue (Aogami) Super carbon steel core and a softer stainless cladding. Very pleasant in maintenance with only the core steel being sustainable to oxidisation. The Blue Super steel will hold a great edge for a long time.
