Lion Sabatier Edonist: materials and use
Power and balance
Lion Sabatier Edonist knives weigh next to nothing and have a slim handle. The combination of these features makes the knives feel balanced. The thin grind of the knives also keeps the cutting resistance low. This allows you to easily and precisely cut your ingredients.
The blades of the knives in this collection were originally made from X50CrMov15 steel. A couple years ago, however, Lion Sabatier, started adding nitrogen to the production process. As a result, the steel is even harder, up to 57-59 HRC. The result is a knife that is even better to use. This type of steel is called 4116 Nitro+.
Safe to use
The knife is made from a single piece of steel that runs throughout the entire handle. The bolster extends to the heel of the blade, keeping your fingers safe. After all, your fingers won’t come anywhere near the sharp edge. The spine of the blade is slightly rounded to make sure you have a comfortable grip over the knife.
Sustainable and low-maintenance
The POM handles are seamlessly attached to the blade. POM is a very sustainable and maintenance-friendly type of plastic. Steel rivets make sure the scales stay in place. The extension of the blade becomes narrower towards the back of the handle and is in nice contrast with the thickening of the POM scales. This subtle detail shows you how much time was spent on the design.
Lion Sabatier is known for their top-quality kitchen knives. The company is named after its founder, Lion Sabatier. The brand Lion Sabatier is still known for its quality knives, but when purchasing Sabatier knives, it is important to research the specific origin and reputation of the manufacturer.
