What makes these knives superb is the steel used. Many kitchen knives are made with inferior grades of stainless steel. “Stainless” is a large group of steel alloys – many entirely unsuitable for blade use.
Grade 420F (X30 CRr13) is capable of attaining the best hardness, sharpness and wear resistance of all the stainless alloys. Its very high carbon content is responsible for these characteristics along with superior heat treatment. Of course this is also more expensive – you get what you pay for.
The ice tempering creates very sharp and hard cutting qualities.
This is a professional quality set that is now available for you. These are not cheap but they will take a superb edge and keep it!
