What is Cold Steel 4116 Krupp Stainless Steel Blade Construction?
4116 Krupp Stainless Steel is a fine grained , stainless steel made by ThyssenKrupp in Germany and is used for hygienic applications (medical devices and the pharmaceutical industry) and food processing which makes it a superb material for kitchen cutlery. The balance of carbon and chromium content gives 4116 Krupp Stainless Steel a high degree of corrosion resistance and also impressive physical characteristics of strength and edge holding. Edge retention in actual cutting tests exceeded blades made of the 420 and 440 series of stainless steels. Other alloying elements contribute to grain refinement which increase blade strength and edge toughness and also allow for a finer , sharper edge.
