Yukihiro Sakai is a newer blacksmith who was formerly with Nishida knives. He has taken his knowledge of working with one of the purest forms of fine grain high - carbon steel and he makes his own materials. Very few blacksmiths make their own material, but the ones that do all the extra work, know the importance of proper technique to limit carbon migration from the core steel to the ironcladding. Does this make a noticeable difference? Yes. Takeda and Moritaka Hamono are famous for a reason. A reminder that White #1 is a highly reactive steel, unmatched for its sharpness.
