Wed May 23, 2012 5:12 am

hi Mark:

Does the G-3 in the Hiromoton 210mm or 240mm stainless G-3 gytuo mean it is made of Ginsanko (Silver-3) steel?

Thanks.

Are you sure??
If my remembrance is OK it's solid G3, good stuff by the way, fine grained, easy sharpening.
Please let me know if I'm in error.

You may be right. I misread your post and, in fact, I have never heard of Hiromoton knives. I probably need reading glasses! Sorry.

Did you mean Hiromoto?  If you are talking about Hiromoto G3 it is made of Hitachi Gingami No.3 (G3 Stainless steel), and is popular for those who want a stainless steel like VG10, and has high carbon durability and long edge retention, and yet easy maintenance of stainless.  It contains high Carbon (0.95 to 1.10) and high Chromium (13.00 to 14.50), and is hardened to Rc. 59- 60.
