SLD Semi-Stainless Steel

SLD semi-stainless steel was originally designed by Hitachi for cutting other steels. It holds an edge as long as carbon steel but is much easier to care for. SLD isn't completely stainless, though, so just make sure to clean and dry it off when you're done using it—especially if you're cutting anything acidic!
