agree and defy you to find a better quality knife for the price. Rated
Best Buy by a leading consumer publication, Century knives meet all
the high standards of quality workmanship that you will find in knives
almost double the cost. Tramontina knives are Forged (as opposed
to stamped) using the exact same materials and methods as German and French
knives. Made in Brasil, they are Full Tang, using 1.4110 x 55
CrMo 14 high quality German chromium molybdenum stainless steel which
assures long lasting edge sharpness and a perfect cut. The blades reach
55 to 58 HRc hardness when subject to subzero tempering and are fixed
to the bolster by Microfusion. Full-tang construction gives you a better-balanced,
stronger knife that is also less tiring to the hand. The polycarbonat
handles are reinforced with fiberglass and injected directly onto the
tang. The anatomical design assure more comfort and safety while handling.
Their weight balances the knife movement and allows perfect motion while
cutting. Backed by a 25 year limited manufacturer's warranty.
