Ice tempered, hardened steel.
Stainless steel is made by combining chromium with steel to make the resulting metal rust resistant. The chromium, however, makes the edges dull more quickly so the stainless steel is hardened to create a durable blade. Ice tempering consists of heating steel to achieve optimal hardening and then cooling it rapidly to preserve the hardness.
Our utility knives have handles made from Wood, Polypropylene, Steel and Plastic.
Wood is attractive and has a natural, warm feel to it.
Hardwoods such as Rosewood and Olive wood are generally used for durability.
Wooden handles are sealed and riveted.
Do not immerse your wooden handles in water as they can expand and crack.
Polypropylene is a very hard, manufactured material that is impervious to water and very durable.
Polypropylene handles are riveted together.
Asian knives use one piece of steel to create the knife and handle.
The steel is generally textured for a secure grip.
The full steel construction creates very strong leverage.
Plastic handles are generally glued together and provide a lightweight handle for smaller cutting tasks such as preparing vegetables.
Plastic handles provide a more economic knife and are excellent for taking out of the kitchen when camping or on picnics.
