A good quality knife starts with good quality materials 

The Brookdale Difference 

Stabilised Timber

The basic principle of wood stabilizing is to take a piece of soft (punky wood) and inject it with resin to create a stable, hardened wood blank.  The resin displaces air pockets throughout the grain structure, creating a dense blank that is nearly impervious to moisture changes and can be polished to a high gloss.

Brookdale Knives uses stabilised timber in order to get the maximum life possible out of the knife handles. It stops the bending and shrinkage/expansion that we usually see when using unstabilised timber.


Sandvik Steel

Brookdale Knives uses Sandvik 12C27 in order to get the maximum life possible out of the knife blades for the everyday user. Being a stainless steel it makes for a lower maintenance knife because it will not rust if the user leaves it wet . It does this whilst still maintaining an amazing edge, which is why Brookdale Knives uses Sandvik 12C27.

Sandvik 12C27™ is a martensitic stainless chromium steel with an optimized analysis for high quality professional knife applications. After heat treatment, the composition of carbon and chromium gives a unique combination of properties including hardness and good corrosion resistance.
