Masamoto HC Possible Damage?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I recently bought a Masamoto HC and noticed some surfacing lines near the start or the blade and handle. I thought to myself that these are just the areas where the blade was forged, and that the reactivity from chopping foods has made it more apparent.

Yet, I'm still feeling cautious and want to hear what you knife experts make of it. I'm hoping it's normal.

 

Thanks

IIRC the HC has a carbon blade and a stainless bolster, which are welded together. The carbon blade gets darker with use, the stainless doesn't. What you see is the welding area.
More or less the same here on a Misono.

Okay, thanks. That's along the lines of what I thought, but needed to be reassured. Much appreciated!
