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
Blue Steel One of the best steels available for general cutlery. It is produced by adding chromium and tungsten to white steel
Silver Steel A form of Yasuki steel which does not easily rust

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.

    Amazing Quality

    Bought this one as a present and it really didn't disappoint. To note, the scissors look much smaller on the picture, they are indeed large.

    Kaneshin SK Steel Scissors, Large, 185mm

    The scissors have a wonderful balance and are extremely comfortable for long hours of handling despite their weight which is not felt at all. They are ultra sharp and their point gets in anywhere and snips perfectly. The 185mm is a perfect size for my average hands. A brilliant product that promises to last long past this review.
