SKD steel is a carbon steel achieving a super sharpness while also being pretty easy to keep sharp. It's clad with stainless steel which helps protect against any reaction to moisture. Our care instructions for a carbon knife, link below, should be followed.
Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
