Sandvik knife steels
The Sandvik program includes knife steel for all types of knives. Our knife steel is used in, for example, kitchen knives, chef’s knives, fishermen’s knives, hunting knives, folding knives and different types of industrial knives. Every Sandvik knife steel has its benefits, ranging from excellent corrosion resistance to extreme hardness. The application determines the requirements of the knife.
