A good quality knife starts with good quality materials
The Brookdale Difference
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.
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.
