For Itto-ryu Hammered Gyuto White #2

"This is my first carbon steel blade. Do you have any confirmed resources on how to prep the knife for first use, how to care for it and how to maintain it?"

Hi-

I have the same knife. The cladding is stainless and doesn't need any special care. The core steel is reactive, but it takes a patina quickly with use (my blade edge turned a dark blue within an hour or so of cutting). It might have some oder with acidic ingredients while the patina is forming, but that quickly goes away. Once the patina is established you shouldn't need to do much except for wipe/dry the blade after use.

Enjoy the knife! It is a GREAT blade.

@Rayong- See my thoughts in your thread on the knife Q&A. It is a great knife.

Sorry BTM, was asking Sue what she thought of it. Just realized I asked the question after your post.

I'm still waiting to get my hands on it. I had it shipped through Finland and my friend is arriving in 6 hours. I will surely have something to say after the weekend :)

If you don't like the notion of a patina on the exposed core steel, it will clean up very easily with some 00 steel wool, and some barkeepers friend or a brillo pad.
