This exceptional high-alloy, fine grained steel is utilised in all of Cangshan’s premier knife lines. The fine grain of the material means a more stable internal structure which is why the steel is able to improve so much during heat treatment becoming hard enough to take a keen 16 degree angle without any of the brittleness common to other hard steels. This makes an incredibly sharp knife that will not chip and stays sharp longer between sharpening.
