Hello H.

I hope you are enjoying that Konosuke you purchased. :)

This is one of the best deals on the whole site. It's a really good knife and very good price for the quality. Comes with a free saya too:

Kind Regards,

All the white, yellow and blue steels are made by Hitachi steel. The white 1, 2 and 3 are all very similar but the white #3 has a little less carbon than the white #1. It tends to be just a tad tougher while white #1 tends to have a little better edge holding properties.
