The blade steel is 1.4116 German Steel or X50CrMoV. This style of steel is vacuum treated to get consistent hardness and durability. Tempered to 56-58 HRC on the Rockwell scale, this steel isn’t as brittle as other options. This makes it more durable in the long run, but it won’t have the physical capability of reaching some of the sharpness levels of knives with harder edges.
The handle is made from a beautiful Ebony wood in a more Western style. The stainless accents are offset by a single copper medallion in the handle. The handles are dehorned for long use without discomfort.
The 7 inch Santoku knives are better suited for dealing with vegetables. The design helps prevent high-water content vegetables from sticking to the side of the knife. The blade can slice very easily and is generally paired with the rocking-cut technique.
1.4116 German Carbon Steel may not be the Ultimate steel for kitchen knives, but with its corrosion resistance, durability and ease of sharpening it is a contender.
