The Gintan (銀鍛) is a K&S special order from Takayuki that has a improved overall package, such as a teak handle and hand engraved kanji, yet maintains a very competitive pricing.
The Ginsanko is basically the stainless version of white 2 steel. Has a bit over 1% Carbon content, the steel gives great sharpness, edge retention and toughness. It is perfect for those looking to give Japanese traditional Yanagiba a try but fear about the relative high maintenance of carbon steel.
