Info about Shirogami (White paper #1) from manufacturer. 

Shirogami, or White Paper#1, is an excellent forging steel especially due to it’s purity and lack of chromium or tungsten as found in the Blue Paper steels from Hitachi. Also known as Ao-Ko or Ao-ichi-ko, it carries as much carbon as Blue Paper #1 (1.3%-1.4% C) just without the additional fanfare making it one of the purest carbon steels on the market. Just like with other Hitachi Paper steels it is excellent for forged cutlery and tools of all types.
