This is Buck's standard blade material because it approaches the wear resistance of high carbon alloys while delivering the corrosion resistance of chromium stainless steels. Add our exclusive heat-treat process and you have a very user-friendly combination of superior corrosion resistance with excellent strength for wear resistance and durability. You also have a blade that is easy to resharpen. For best performance we harden to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 58.
Bought this 13 piece Rosewood kitchen knife set for the wife and she just loves them. I have been around knifes all my life and these are outstanding. Have purchased several other Buck knifes since then.
Have had the 13-piece Rosewood set for at least six months now and still looks new. Works great in the kitchen and wife and I love using them. I recommend washing or rinsing knives soon after use to avoid staining and or water spots. Like I said, mine look like new even after daily use. Really happy that Buck is American, makes in American and their quality is impressive. Have bought other pocket knives by Buck since then and will continue to buy their products. The quality and durability is totally worth the price. Thank you Buck Knives!
