Knives 100% forged in Thiers
The whole knife is forged in a single mass of stainless Z50C13 steel.
On this range, the cutting edge is calibrated to take off the smudges caused by the emboss at the forge.
Thermic tempering process + cryogenic tempering process : The tempering process is done at temperatures higher than 1040°C followed by the quickest possible air-cooling. To achieve the maximal hardness, it is necessary that a complementary sub-zero (-70° -80°) treatment follows the tempering process before doing the tempering. The temperature used for the tempering depends on the wished hardness level.
Advantages : - decrease of the residual austenity - increase of the hardness - increase of the resistance to corrosion - refine structure of the steel - increase of all mechanical characteristics (resistance against break, flexibility, etc )
For this range Authentique 1834 Limited, a fine grounding and a crosswise polishing are used to give a finer cutting edge on the whole length. For an excellent surface, an extra fine crosswise manual polishing is necessary to erase the scratch caused by the grounding and the first polishing.
POM handles are manually set and mounted on the tang using three through rivets. Polishing of the whole knife in several times with different tools which are finer and finer.
Razor sharpening: the sharpening must respect the criterion of the cutting edge (between 18° and 23°). The way of doing it takes the nature of the blades into account. Fine abrasive strips are used to obtain a high quality cut. The polishing of the cutting edge eliminate the last thin smudges . Thanks to the polished and shiny surface of the cutting part, the knife slides easier during its use
Laser mark : the finish is perfect
