Sandvik 10C28Mo2 is a martensitic stainless chromium steel developed for razor blade and knife applications with high demands on corrosion resistance. The carefully chosen chemical composition in combination with a very fine microstructure also provides a high hardness, good edge retention, toughness and edges that are easy to re-sharpen.

After heat treatment the grade is characterized by:

  • Very good corrosion resistance
  • High hardness which gives good wear resistance
  • Good toughness

Typical applications for Sandvik 10C28Mo2 are kitchen knives and other tools where a dishwasher-safe material is required, professional butcher knives that need to be easily re-sharpened, outdoor knives, medical blades and razor blades, with high requirements on corrosion resistance and toughness.
