General-purpose stainless steel. 420J2 is well suited for routine applications, is easily sharpened, and offers a great blend of hardness and wear resistance
Extremely sharp right out of the box.
I have used this knife for 2 years and it is still sharp. I use it for cutting meat of all sorts. I use it about once a week.
Great grip handle and well balanced with just the right length for filleting fish. Problems with the blade staying sharp, tried all kinds of sharpeners, even electric. The blade does not hold a smooth edge and keeps coming out rough like a serrated blade. diffenitly not a pure stainless steal blade.
