Stainless martensitic • precipitation hardening steel • stainless ferritic — Our answer to your needs
We provide a wide range of knife steel makes it possible to select the most suitable material for each application.
Hardness and Toughness
The ability of hardness and toughness is always contradictory. So, we recommend the value which gives the balanced hardness and toughness. Like 440A (1.4109) stainless steel, the hardness obtained in HRC 55-58 is recommended.
Like the hunting knives and kitchen knives, the demand on its corrosion resistance is different. We should choose the right materials according to the specific application.
Optimized chemistry, by adding special elements like molybdenum, vanadium and cobalt, together with steel billets done technical hot forged processing, the ability of wear resistance could be further improved which issues long life of the edge sharpness retention.
