Chromium steel is an easy-to-maintain and stainless-grade blade material the sharpness of the blade of which preserves for a long time.
A typical portion of chromium in the steel alloy is 14%, and the blade hardness is HRC 53-55. In some models, we also use high-carbon stainless steel, where the chromium content is 13-18% depending on the alloy. Depending on the model, these blades are tempered to hardness HRC 52-58. Chromium steel can also, for example, be coated with a Martef coating.
Sharpening of chromium steel can be done with a diamond sharpener. Read more.
