What is the purpose of putting a stainless clad over a stainless core?

I don't know but my guess is cost cutting. It seems like most of the time the stainless cladding is done with a cheaper steel?

Yep it's mostly cost savings. Also, some stainless steels are harder to engrave, pit a little more, break and crack more easily etc so they will buy it clad with soft stainless steel.

It is also easier to thin the softer cladding and easier to grind the softer cladding than a full hard steel. It lets them use thinner, harder steel and the softer stainless helps absorb shock to the blade as well supposedly.

Sakai Takayuki does many, many of the VG-10 core/Damascus clad knives are this construction, Hiromoto G3 is SS clad, Kanehiro has a G3/SS clad line, etc.
