Adams North and Navy Opinel Steak knife project
Sandvik 12C27 modified stainless steel. It is anti-corrosive thanks to the addition of chrome and requires no special maintenance. Its carbon content of at least 0.40% gives excellent cutting edge. Blade hardness 57-58 HRC
These are cool knives Needed lots of love after 5 years or so of commercial dishwashing
The Sandvik Stainless is quite Pitted
Background on the knife
The Table Knife Laminated Birch Set contains 4 elegant knives.
The new Chic Table range combines a curved handle with the traditional Opinel blade shape, known as the Yatagan blade. Its design, inspired by a Turkish sabre with a raised tip, guarantees exceptional strength.
The 10 cm blades are made from Sandvik stainless steel to ensure remarkable cutting quality.
On top of their striking appearance, the laminated birch handles are also safe and comfortable in the hand.
Thanks to their bolster, the knives are very stable and will stay in place on the table.
