Radioactive Japanese knives

Moneemaniac | Apr 23, 2014 11:29 AM

I know this sounds insane but is there any merit to questioning the safety of Japanese steel? The internet abounds with discussions of food products being, let's say "tainted" bythe sad events at Fukashima. Can the same circumstances affect the ore (or whatever) from which knives are produced. I have some pre-Fukashima Shuns that are exquisite pieces of cutlery and I'd like to get more.
Someone please tell me I just have too much free time on my hands.
