Sandvik Stainless steel (Swedish)
A stainless steel is in the European food hygiene standards because it contains a minimum of 13% chromium. A stainless steel is a mixture of carbon and chromium.
A stainless steel blade retains its shine, does not oxidize and does not give taste to the food. It is a steel with a greater hardness than the carbon blade : its sharpness lasts longer.
The first stainless steel blades (35 years ago) did not have an interesting cutting power (440 and earlier). This is no longer the case today with Sandvik stainless steels.
We use 2 references of Sandvik stainless steel:
- 12C27 stainless steel, standard
- High quality 14C28 stainless steel with superior cutting edge and sharpening capabilities.
Blades are manufactured in our Blacksmith's workshop.
