Shirogami 2(Hitachi) - Kitchen Knives Steel FAQ - Also referred as Shiro-Ko 2 and Shiro-ni-ko. Same as Shiro-Ko 1, except slightly lower C content. Very good edge holding, gets very high hardness. Takes a very fine edge, and works best with it, it's not a high carbide volume steel to benefit from coarse edges. Excellent performer in the kitchen knives, not stain resistant, rusts easy, so be careful and keep it clean.
