Pleas note the recommendations from Maruyoshi about the care of high carbon steel:
"- The blades are forged from several layers of carbon steel. The cutting
edges are extremely hard but also relatively brittle. Rough handling can
lead to chipping of the blade and other damage.
-The carbon steel used is unalloyed in order to maximize sharpness. As a
result, the steel is not corrosion-free and must be washed and stored with
care. The knife blades should be washed by hand and wiped dry immediately
after use especially when get some dirt by acid stuff. They should be
stored in a dry environment. For additional protection, apply a small
amount of acid-free, non-toxic oil after use."
