The United States is the world leader in the fields of aeronautics, computers, medicine, and defense-- each of these industries has invested heavily in the development of new "super-steels" and we have exploited these advances to make the best knives on the market. The same folks who took us to the moon inadvertently helped solve the riddle of how to make the ultimate chef knife. The riddle of steel has always been how to make a super sharp steel that won't stain, break and chip easily. Knife makers have struggled to find a way to mitigate these negatives by adding specific alloys and various heat treatments-- but their solutions always had trade offs.
CPMS35VN "Powder Metal Steel" solves the "riddle of steel." Molten metal is sprayed into a cold environment, immediately freezing in tight crystalline patterns. The molecular density of its molten state is preserved instantly in newly formed "steel flakes." This "super powder" is combined using intense compression and then, made into sheets.
The development of "powder metal" super steels represents a paradigm shift as significant as the transition from the Bronze Age to the Iron Age.
