420H: High Carbon content
420: steel with partial high Carbon content. Very stain resistant
and tough. Easy to re-sharpen.
“MOVA” 1.4116 (X50CrMoV15):
It´s classic steel used in fixed knives and folding knives. An excellent
combination of Molybdenum and Vanadium that is highly stain
resistant, though and corrosion resistant.
One of the best stainless steels to make knives. Increased
nitrogen in the formula enables 14C28N to provide both
excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to be hardened
to 58-61 Rockwell.
One of the most appreciated steels. RWL34 uses a rapid solified
powder system (RSP). Based steel which assures the following
- incomparable purity and free of inclusions
- extreme edge sharpness
- easy to maintain
- high hardness
- high corrosion resistance
Premium steel, which is most peculiar for its content of:
- 1.5% Cobalt
- Carbon 1.07%
- Chromium 17%
- Manganese 0.40%
- Molybdenum 1.10%
- Silicon 0.40%
- Vanadium 0.10%
Cobalt allows for a very uniform structure of the steel, as well as excellent edge retention and wear resistance.
STAINLESS DAMASCUS STEEL:
The “Stainless Damascus Steel” consists out of a compound up to 130 layers.
It can range between 90 and 130 depending on the thickness and production.
Using two kind of rapidly solidified powder steels (RWL34-PMC27) welded at a temperature of 1150ºC and at a gas pressure of about 1.000 atmospheres.
This results in a hard and durable material, heat resistant.
Thereby increasing radically the fracture strength.
Hand-Crafted in the way they made Samurai swords.
These traditional Japanese kitchen knives, uses VG10 laminated blades.
The VG10 High Carbon Cobalt core is clad with 7 layers of stainless
steel (410) on each side, producing the beautiful 15 layers
Damascus steel. VG10 is known as “Super Steel” that holds
its sharpness longer than other steels.
DAMASCUS (CARBON STEEL):
“Damascus steel” forged by hand following
