The other main features of TB Groupe’s latest cutlery line

A rust-resistant blade

TB Groupe’s new line of kitchen knives with silicone handles has blades that are very hard, giving them an exceptional cutting capacity. Their cutting edge remains razor sharp even after everyday use. When needed, its blade can be easily sharpened especially if you use a rod knife sharpening steel or TB’s dual-stage knife sharpener!

This blade is completely rust-resistant due to its composition. It is an alloy of metals that were carefully selected by Tarrerias-Bonjean for its high percentage of chromium. TB sets high standards for quality!

A TB Groupe certified quality tempered steel

TB’s Silicone line is manufactured in France; these kitchen knives are known for their superior-quality tempered steel blades.

TB Groupe pays a great deal of attention to performing quality control checks throughout every step of their manufacturing process, especially during the tempering process.

Tempering is a heat treatment process used at high-end cutlery companies to produce incredibly strong steel whose cutting capacity is greatly superior to that of classic steel.

This process consists of progressively heating the steel (to approximately 1,000°C/1,832°F) then rapidly cooling it. This process creates a perfectly homogenized alloy called martensite, which, due to its crystalline structure, is an incredibly hard form of steel.

The Silicone kitchen knives are very high-end tools with countless positive features.
