Carpenter Technology Corp., Wyomissing, PA, USA, is introducing Carpenter CTS-BD1, a new alloy that is part of the Carpenter CTS alloys suite. These particular alloys offer many attributes making them attractive for use in consumer, industrial and medical knife blade applications.

Carpenter CTS-BD1 is a premium melted stainless steel containing certain metal additions that offer characteristics such as enhanced knife blade edge retention at a competitive cost.

The Carpenter CTS family of alloys offers superior edge retention and surface finish as well as an ability to be machined to a fine edge and consistent heat-treatability from lot to lot. These attributes make the Carpenter CTS alloys strong candidates for a wide array of blade applications, including commercial food processing, paper processing, textile, packaging, recycling/refuse, kitchen knives, hand tools, scissors/shears, shaving razors, sport/hunting knives, ice skates, military/defense,law enforcement, salon blades and various surgical/medical applications.
