Aesthetics must push into function. A chef wants a connection with the tools they use to create. Some prefer a light nimble knife while others work better with a heavy, large handled knife. Professional creatives also want their tools to aesthetically connect with their story. This is the reason we have 17 Patented and Patent Pending handle designs and have won 19 Design Awards.
A great knife comes from excellent materials. We use high-alloy German steel which offers an excellent mix of hardness and durability with the ability to reach a hardness rating of 58 ±2 on the Rockwell Hardness Rating Scale. These steels take an exceptionally sharp edge and boasts superior edge retention compared to competing knives currently in the marketplace. That means a knife that stays sharper, longer.
Every blade goes through an ultra-precise 6 stage heat treatment which brings out one of the best qualities of each steel. Heat treatment is the key to a great knife. Even slight variations of a few degrees at any point in the process can cause the knife’s hardness to vary throughout the blade. This is the reason it took 2+ years of research and development to dial in the specific heat treatment process that would ensure our knives are both hard enough to take a sharp 16 degree edge, yet durable enough to keep that sharp edge during heavy kitchen use.
At the end of the day a knife needs to perform. All Cangshan knife proudly can do just that. The quality and craftsmanship of the knives ensure they precisely and effectively perform their cutting functions giving the user a responsive and refined tactile experience that enhances and augments their skills and process. Every knife from Cangshan is handcrafted and hand sharpened, these are real, passionate artisans creating beautiful, functional
