Yasuki Steels

SK Steel Carbon Steel. Used to make scissors, kitchen knives and other general cutlery
Yellow Steel A higher quality form of SK Steel, where more impurities have been removed.
White Steel More rigid than yellow steel. This material is often used for hatchets and Deba knives

In the past, craftsmen used coloured paper to distinguish various steels. Back then they used blue, white and yellow colour paper. This is the origin of the naming of steels which is still held till today. It does not refer in any way to the colour of the metal.
