White steel #1 is the purest form of carbon, making it the closest material to Japanese tamahagane steel, which was originally used to craft Japanese swords. Forging a knife out of white steel #1 is extremely difficult and very few highly skilled craftsmen are still able to forge kitchen knives with this material, making knives made out of white steel #1 exceedly rare. Hongasumi knives are high-grade kasumi knives. They are forged, tempered, and finished with great care and precision. To create these blades, high carbon steel is layered with soft iron then forged and hammered in a process similar to kasumi knives but with more detailed steps involved.
