I own several nenohi knives - their stainless ones are Swedish stainless for the most part - same as AEBL They sharpen well and held a great edge

We sold them about 5 years ago. Nice looking knives. Nice fit and finish.

Have a couple. It was often rumored that it was a vg1 steel. I have a sujihiki 230mm and a wa deba and petty. I like mine a lot.
