All steel products manufactured by Broggi 1818 are made of AISI 304 (18/10 stainless steel), an austenitic chromium-nickel alloy. Stainless steel derives its name from its ability to resist corrosion far more than any other steel.
All knives by Broggi 1818 are made of AISI 420, a martensitic steel used for manufacturing solid-handle knives and the blades of hollow-handle knives. The advantage is its remarkable hardness obtained after suitable hardening treatments. This guarantees that knife blades have a better grip of the cutting edge and enhanced cutting capacity.
