Chromax steel is nice steel to work with and loves being sharpened. Chromax is however not stainless and must be kept clean and dry at all times to prevent rust and chipping.
The 210mm gyuto is the must have length in any kit.
Chromax steel is not stainless. If left untreated / cared for, this knife will rust.
