CAMBRIAN BLACK NITRIDE STEEL – 12″ – NO.5
Fine Polishing Steel.
The nitriding treatment process is widely used as a corrosion prohibitor for carbon steel. While other methods like chrome plating applies a corrosion resistant metal (chrome) to the surface of carbon steel, (like paint covers wood) nitriding actually penetrates the steel and therefore does not rely on adhesion properties. Cambrian have tested a nitrided steel alongside a traditional steel in water and the chrome plated steel showed the first signs of rust after a week and the nitride steel simply did not rust. Field trials have shown that the nitride steels appear sharper and hold their edge much longer. The nitriding process actually case hardens the steel providing a harder contact surface against the knife. This is why it lasts longer, it simply is much harder.
Things you can expect from the nitrided steel when comparing to a traditional chrome plated steel
• Its performance is better
• It lasts longer
• Corrosion resistance far outweighs that of a traditional plated steel
