La Lame du Couteau

Le Tranchant le plus affûté

Le Tranchant le plus affûté

La fabrication d'une lame Marttiini est un processus exigeant et long. Tout d'abord, une masse d'acier est enroulée en une bande d'acier, à partir de laquelle les préformes de lame sont coupées. Les préformes sont ensuite trempées et refroidies à la dureté correcte.


Stainless chromium steel

Stainless chromium steel

The stainless steel used by Marttiini is a virtually care-free blade material.
A stainless steel blade remains sharp for long. 13% of the steel mixture is chromium, and the hardness of the mixture is 53–54 Rockwell units (HRC).
In some models, we also use high-carbon stainless steel with a HRC of 56-58.

A diamond sharpener is recommended for sharpening chromium steel.

Carbon steel

Carbon steel

Carbon steel
A blade made of carbon steel (chromium 3%, carbon 0,75%, HRC 55–57) is especially good for whittling and is easy to sharpen back to its original sharpness. In maintaining a carbon steel blade, it's important to dry it carefully after each use. It's also good to oil it regularly with unsalted oil, like cooking oil. A carefully cared for carbon steel blade will remain rust free and has a very long lifespan.

Carbinox T508

Carbinox T508

Carbinox T508 steel combines the best properties of carbon and chromium steel: toughness, ease of sharpening and extreme durability. The carbon content of the steel mixture is 0.5%, chromium content 8% and it has a hardness of 56–57 HRC. The material is not classified as stainless, although it significantly more corrosion resistant than traditional carbon steel. The basic maintenance of a Carbinox T508 blade requires nothing more than cleaning and drying the blade after use. We do, however, recommend oiling the blade with unsalted oil every now and then.
 

Damascus

Damascus

The Damascus blade is made by combining two different steels in thin layers. The blade has 120 steel layers that have been welded together under extreme pressure and heat. The result is a beautifully patterned, stainless and very hard blade (HRC 60) that stays sharp even in extended use.

Martef steel coating

Martef steel coating

The stain and moisture repelling Martef coating reduces friction to nearly non-existent level. The coating allows the blade to slice very fluidly through the material being cut, and the blade is very easy to clean after use.
