Henckels is famous for its "Friodur" knife. High carbon, no-stain steel is ice hardened, ground and hand honed. Now it has been improved with new state-of-the art "S.C.T." (Sintermetal Component Technology) which bonds super hard structural steel in the tang to improved "edging" steel on the blade. Professional "S" Cutlery also has "Friodur" forged blades, but with a two piece plastic handle rivetted to the full tang.
Professional "S" cutlery Sigmaforge is one piece precision forging used in manufacturing of Pro "S" cutlery. Forging from a single piece of steel has the following benefits:
- Excellent geometry
- Improved steel structure
- Improved cutting edge retention and lasting sharpness
- Friodur ice herdened - maximum no stain properties and more blade strength
