Sandvik 14C28N Knife Steel
C-0,62 Si-0,2 Mn-0,6 P-≤0,025 S≤0.010 Cr-14 N-0,11
Ultimate combination of hardness and corrosion resistance
Sandvik 14C28N is a martensitic stainless chromium steel with a chemistry optimized for high quality professional knife applications. The chemical composition provides a unique combination of properties including:
- Excellent edge performance
- Very high hardness
- Good corrosion resistance
Sandvik 14C28N is mainly recommended for knife applications which put very high demands on edge sharpness, edge stability and corrosion resistance. Examples are pocket knives, chefs knives, hunting knives and fishing knives.
Sandvik 14C28N is the latest development in Sandvik's range of knife steels. Optimized chemistry provides a top grade knife steel with a unique combination of excellent edge performance, high hardness and good corrosion resistance.
This new grade matches the previous highest achievable hardness without affecting the microstructure. Blade re-sharpening is therefore easy. At the same time, edge stability in terms of microchipping and edge folding or rolling is also good.
With a recommended hardness range of 55-62 HRC, Sandvik 14C28N is ideal for knife applications which place very high demands on edge sharpness, edge stability and corrosion resistance such as chef's knives, pocket knives, hunting and fishing knives.
Like most of Sandvik's knife steel grades, Sandvik 14C28N is fineblankable enabling efficient production.
