【White Steel No,2】
White steel is made from finely grained carbon steel that lacks a lot of contaminants within the iron, meaning that knives made from white, high-carbon steel are able to sharpen into a razor-like edge. It’s also called white paper #2 or Hitachi White #2 steel; and is made up of Carbon:1.05 to 1.15%. It is in fact a quite popular steel for high end Japanese cutlery.
