Size: Handle 9cm -3. 1/2" - Blade 3" Weight: 1.5 oz Blade, Spring & Bee: T12. Produced exclusively for Forge de Laguiole, T12 steel combines durability, rust resistance and ease of sharpening. Although T12 will not rust it is not a stainless steel, it's a unique "hybrid" metal alloy. Forge de Laguiole's unique methods of forging, combined with tempering, give this knife a perfect cutting edge. The T12 steel comes from the Isere region of France. Beware....of manufactures that are offering 12c27 Sandvik stainless steel and are using terms like "Forged in Laguiole " (or where ever they want you to believe they are). 12c27 stainless steel is a good stainless steel but it cannot be forged, the blades of such knives are stamped from sheath metal. All Forge de Laguiole blades are forged from T12 steel rods. Stamping a blade reduce the cost of a knife's blade dramatically. More details about forging here.
