Dishwasher safe

Alleima® 12C27M knife steel was developed for highest possible edge performance while still having good enough corrosion resistance for daily use in a dishwasher.

Alleima® 12C27M knife steel is a step up in corrosion resistance from Alleima® 12C27 and the number one choice for edge applications where increased corrosion resistance is important together with high demands on edge performance and toughness.

With a hardness range of 53-59 HRC, excellent toughness and great corrosion resistance this knife steel grade is the recommended choice for kitchen knives, high-end scissors, gardening tools, professional butcher knives and fishing knives for fresh water environments.

Like most of our knife steels this grade is fineblankable enabling efficient production.
