When it comes to finding the ideal knives for oneself, there are several factors to consider while keeping their needs in mind. Knives come in a wide range of styles, with blades and handles made of a number of metals and alloys.
Some are uncommon and costly, while others are widely available. The ball-bearing steel type, which is extensively used to create blades, is among the several other types of steel available. Many custom knife producers use 52100 steel, often known as ball-bearing steel, a rather rough steel variant at that, to create knives that are suitable for their clientele.
At Perkin Knives, you can choose from our expertly crafted range of ball-bearing steel knives for your individual needs.
What are Ball Bearing Steel Knives?
A high-quality knife will stay sharp through years of use if it’s made with the right steel. Ball-bearing steel blades are among the toughest you can find on the market today, so they’re extremely durable and will be able to withstand constant use and lots of force. You can find ball-bearing steel knives at any good cooking supply store, but Perkins supplies them at some of the lowest prices in the industry.
Ball-bearing steel has a number of very positive features that make it such an attractive knife blade choice, including high edge stability, wear resistance, and toughness (or shock resistance). If you want your knife to be tough, last for years, and have good resistance to damage, then ball-bearing steel is the right blade material for you.
Ball Bearing Steel Knives Features
A ball bearing knife has its own particular qualities. When compared to other knives, particularly Damascus steel knives, you won’t notice a wavy pattern on ball bearing steel blades owing to the fact that this steel is not laminated.
Because it contains very fine carbides, your knife with a blade constructed of ball bearing steel will be robust, wear resistant, and have a high edge stability. Perkins offered a knife with a hardwood handle and a total length of 13.5 inches. Perkin Knives offers excellent ball-bearing hunting knives that you will like having in your inventory.
