Scanpan Classic Cutlery is crafted from the finest grade German stainless steel. Each blade is expertly ground, honed and tested. The angle must be exact, uniform from bolster to tip and the curve flawlessly tapered. The blade is Rockwell tested to ensure that it's tempered and hardened to perfection. The Scanpan Classic is perfect of everything from precision peeling and slicing to the mundane removal of eyes from potatoes.
