Description

Let me just start with saying my standard steel is awesome. Most home chef’s won’t notice the difference. However, the powdered steel in this knife is a cut above and just a pleasure to use. 

The cutting core is made from a powdered steel.

To give a brief run down on the powdered steel benefits, some harder metals won't mix at higher concentrations in an alloy. Like this:

So when making the powdered steel mix, they add higher amount of metals like validum, and then pour a thin flow of the molten mix through a blast of nitrogen gas, with atomises the steel into a powder.

This new mix of powdered alloy is then added to a crucible, heated to forging temperatures (but not melting temperatures) and press forged into a solid ingot ready to forge into blades.

This process means that the metals of the steel characteristics can be tweaked to give the ultimate in knife steels and hold an unbeatable edge.  

The rockwell rating is 63-64, which is just insane.  

The grind on these knives are also incredible. An 'S' grind down the middle of the blade provides a lighter blade and gives the benefit of superior food release.
