Great stainless steel made by Hitachi. As you notice, it is very pure steel. It does not have any other elements than Carbon and Chromium. This will allow Ginsan to take very crisp edge (sharpens easy) like carbon steel, but does not rust. When you forge with spring hammer, it has great forge effect (make carbide smaller).
