what type of metal is this knife? im thinking stainless steel?
RICHARD D The blade and top nut are 416 grade stainless steel.
SHAD W The blade is made from 420 Stainless steel.
TIM T Let me start by saying; I love LeisurePro, but that knife is junk! It will rust very quick and rust bad. Look for the US DIVERS 304 stainless steel knife....I think they sell it. It will not rust and holds a nice edge. Good luck.
CHRIS J Yes, it is stainless steel. It has "electrolytic polishing, buff polishing, and clear paint coating to protect the knife from rusting". It uses "H-1" stainless steel, which is apparently the more rust proof, best cutting, and is the strongest compared to other stainless steels.
AARON B yes it is stainless but you will still need to clean it after every use, its best to remove the handle & wash all metal with plenty of fresh water.
