The Sabatier and Stellar combination of Carbon-Chrome-Molybdenum and Vanadium steel offers the advantage of easy sharpening with extended edge life and resistance to rust and stains.
Each Sabatier and Stellar knife is fully forged from a single billet of top grade steel - not strip steel - of Rockwell C Hardness 56-58. Blades have a full length tang which extends into the handle. The craftsman-ground edges will retain their sharpness through expert hardening and tempering.
The perfect Taper Grinding of Sabatier and Stellar knives produces a fine and very strong cutting edge.
Each Sabatier and Stellar knife has a perfect join between the handle, bolster and blade - the hygeiene requirement of top quality professional knives. The high technology material POM-C forms handles which have great resistance to heat, wear and dishwasher detergents. Sabatier and Stellar knife handles are crafted using solid spun one piece rivets, spun flat under pressure, which cannot work loose.
