The Blue Super line from Nigara features the unique Kaen (火炎, flame) hammer pattern. The stainless cladding and Blue Super core is the perfect entry point to dive into the world of carbon steel.
I often recommend professionals to get the stainless clad carbon rather than full carbon because sometimes the kitchen can be a bit too busy to look after an iron cladded knife. 

==========

Since being appointed by the domain of Tsugaru to make Japanese swords, Nigara Forging has a history of over 350 years.

As one of the few noble swordsmiths in Japan, Nigara homono has continued to preserve this art. The making of swords has been abandoned as a business item since 1965, but the same forging techniques such as welding and hammering have been kept alive in the making of kitchen knives since then.
