Forged manually, blade length: 4.4 Inches , width: 2.5 Inches, weight: about 190g. Made of manganese steel, the handle and the blade are integrated without soldering, which is firm and durable to eliminate broken handle. Due to its excellent rigidity, the front 3/4 part is suitable for shredding and the rear 1/4 part is suitable for cutting.
The quenching technology, passed down from generations to generations, makes the knife rigidity as high as HRC60Â±2, which is much higher than HRC52Â±2, the standard for knives made mechanically. In addition, the physical density and rigidity of such knives are greatly enhanced by the repeated hammering performed by experienced blacksmiths. And they have better hand feelings as well.
The knives are sharpened manually by workers with more than 30 years of experience by using natural knife grinders mined from Mount Emei. Compared with kitchen knives made with mechanical ways, the service life of such knives is longer.
Due to the quenching skill made by experienced workers and unique forming technology with different heating methods, the equilibrium between the rigidity and tenacity of such knives is guarantee to make them more durable.
Forged knives have higher carbon content. Attention shall be paid to cleaning, acidic or alkaline substances cannot stay on the blade for a long period. Such knife shall be wiped dry after cleaning. Some cooking oil may be applied on it if it is not used for a long time. And it shall be placed at a dry place for storage.
