12C27M knife steel

Dishwasher safe

12C27M knife steel was developed for highest possible edge performance while still having good enough corrosion resistance for daily use in a dishwasher.

12C27M knife steel is a step up in corrosion resistance from 12C27 and the number one choice for edge applications where increased corrosion resistance is important together with high demands on edge performance and toughness.

With a hardness range of 53-59 HRC, excellent toughness and great corrosion resistance this knife steel grade is the recommended choice for kitchen knives, high-end scissors, gardening tools, professional butcher knives and fishing knives for fresh water environments.

Like most of our knife steels this grade is fineblankable enabling efficient production.
