Cangshan Cutlery Co. A Series Knives
The definition of form meets function. Not only is Cangshan Cutlery Co. A Series stunning with its rich African Blackwood handles, the knives’ appearance is as sharp as the blades are. Each blade is forged from high-alloy Swedish Sandvik 12C27 steel making the knives exceptionally durable and sharp. This proprietary fine-grained steel is enhanced with a six-stage heat treatment process giving the metal a 59 +/- 2 Rockwell Hardness Rating. Each blade holds a 16-degree edge, and Canshan says it will keep that sharpness up to five times longer than comparable top brand knives currently in the market. TGR tested the three-piece combo set, pictured.
