In finding a good knife, there are lots of things to consider. Being a distributor of high quality Japanese knives, we, at Japanny know how to distinguish superior brands from the sub-standard ones and what are the materials used in producing knives that professional chefs would love to use. Japanny takes pride in its original brand called Ichiban Knife (Best Knife).
The super steel material ZDP 189 from Hitachi used in knife production, has an extremely high carbon (3%) and chromium (20%) content making it expensive to manufacture. It is made using powdered metal technology.
The pure carbon content of ZDP 189 makes it one of the most edge retentive alloy in the knife industry. It has toughness against chipping and offers excellent wear resistance.
The best way to maintain the sharpness of the ZDP 189 blade is by using diamond rods with very light pressure. Though some people reported that Japanese water stones can do the job as well.
