Korin Ginsan-ko Stain-Resistant

光琳 銀三鋼

Korin’s Ginsan-ko traditional Japanese knives are forged out of ginsan-ko steel and have an octagonal yew wood handle. The use of ginsan-ko steel embodies a new concept in Japanese knife making. Traditional methods of craftsmanship are combined with modern metallurgical advances to produce a traditional Japanese knife with enhanced user friendliness. The carbon steel core is forged from soft iron steel and 13% chromium blended steel to create this stain resistant blade. Despite its stain resistant quality, the ginsan-ko steel still has a high carbon content which makes it a great alternative to a pure carbon blade.


  • HRc: 60 
  • Bevel: Single Edged 
  • Steel Type: Ginsan-ko (Stain resistant)

For Left-Handed Customer

  • Left-handed blades must be special ordered from Japan, and will cost 50% more than the right-handed blades. Due to how each traditional Japanese knife is handmade by right handed craftsmen, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to forge and deliver.
