SANDVIK Swedish Steel 12C27 is Sandvik’s most well-rounded knife steel with brilliant edge performance allowing high hardness, razor sharpness, good corrosion resistance and exceptional toughness.
Sandvik Swedish Steel 12C27 is a martensitic stainless chromium steel with an optimised analysis for very high quality professional knife applications. After treating them with heat, the composition of carbon and chromium gives a unique combination of properties including:
- Very high wear resistance
- Very high hardness
- Good corrosion resistance
SANDVIK Swedish Steel 12C27 is the main knife steel for hand-held knives.
Continuous improvement over a period of 45 years has evolved the manufacturer SANDVIK Swedish Steel 12C27 into the high performing steel grade it is today. The composition is tighter, the fine carbide microstructure of today is far from how SANDVIK Swedish Steel 12C27 knife steel of the sixties looked and the purity level is much higher.
With a hardness range of 54-61 HRC, scary sharpness, high toughness, and good corrosion resistance, Sandvik 12C27 is the recommended grade for pocket knives, hunting knives, high-end chef’s knives, camping knives and tactical knives.
I’ve used and collected knives for well over 50 years. Sandvik 12C27 is the
only stainless that I’ve found that will actually take and hold an edge. I use
it frequently in my knife building. An excellent steel. – Rich S. on Britishblades.com
Like most of Sandvik’s knife steels this grade is fineblankable enabling efficient production.
