Some quick and dirty pics. Super sharp out of the box. Somewhat surprised to see that it came with the desiccant packet and coated with oil like you'd expect with non-stainless blades. From my understanding, SG2 is stainless. Perhaps the maker always does this with clad knives (since they are often carbon steels)?
Also I do wonder why they went with cladding. Availability? Material cost? Manufacturing cost? Final blade toughness?
I like the accent of the lockbar coating, and I'm always happy to pick up another Delica, especially in something that feels unique. The fact that it's stainless is icing on the cake. And it's my first black one!
