This means our knives feel great to grip and hold, work well for heavy kitchen use and are easy to keep clean and sanitary. Since our launch in 2015 we have created 25 Patented designs and won 27
A great knife comes from excellent materials. We use high-alloy German steel which offers an excellent mix of hardness and durability with the ability to reach a hardness rating of 58 (±) 2 on the Rockwell Hardness Rating Scale. These steels take an exceptionally sharp edge and boast superior edge retention compared to competing knives currently in the marketplace. That means a sharp knife with optimal edge retention.
Every blade goes through our meticulous six stage ULTRA6 heat treatment which brings out the best qualities of each steel. Heat treatment is the key to a great knife. We have perfected the specific heat treatment process that would ensure our knives are both hard enough to take a sharp 16 degree edge, yet durable enough to keep that sharp edge during heavy kitchen use.
At the end of the day, a knife needs to perform. All Cangshan knives proudly can do just that. The quality and craftsmanship of the knives ensure they precisely and effectively perform their cutting functions giving the user a responsive and refined tactile experience that enhances and augments their skills and process. Every knife from Cangshan is handcrafted and hand sharpened, these are real, passionate artisans creating beautiful, functional tools.
What is SHARP?
There are a number of factors that go into the sharpness of a knife edge. In simplified terms the more acute the angle of the edge, the sharper the knife. So a 16-degree angle will be sharper than a 24-degree angle. Harder steels are better able to take on these smaller, keener angles. However harder steels tend to suffer from brittleness, meaning they take more care to maintain the edge.
How SHARP is it?
Initial Cutting Performance [ICP] is a measurement that reflects how sharp the knife’s edge is after it has been sharpened. Any score over 110 is considered excellent while a measurement under 30 is rated as very poor.
How long will it stay SHARP?
Total Card Cut [TCC] is a measurement that reflects how long a knife will stay sharp and resist wear through use. Scores over 550 are considered excellent while scores under 100 are rated as very poor.
