Carefully selected materials

A nice dish and a nice knife whet the appetite.
The cutting quality and the welcoming of the handle in the hand palm animate the touch.
The spicy or animal smel of some handle materials stir up the taste buds.

Because the cutting experience is played through several senses, GOYON-CHAZEAU Cutlery as always attached great importance to the materials quality it uses for its products manufacturing.

Composite :

In a more respectful environment perspective, GOYON-CHAZEAU Cutlery wants to propose new materials, characterized by their ecological manufacture, their resistance and their ease of maintenance.

In this way, we offer :

  • Carbon fiber : extremely light and resistant material, it brings an aesthetic and an incomparable resistance to knives
  • Paperstone : this composite material is made from FSC (environnemental label) recycled, FSC mix post-consumer recycled paper and phenolic resins made in-house using the lowest impact raw materials possible. Using pigments rather than dyes assures superior colour durability, UV resistance and allow dish washer use.

Its NFS certification (4G970 certificate) guarantees its suitability for food contact and makes it an ideal material for catering and hotels.

Smart, elegant and responsible, its beauty and strongness offer an eco-alternative to wood.

Goyon-Chazeau : Travail de l'inox

In order to propose the best steel to each use, GOYON-CHAZEAU uses :

  • X46CR13 (1.4034) stainless steel, said cutlery steel, for all its table knives.
    This steel is very resistant to corrosion and offers an excellent cutting quality and a brilliant polish, said mirror polish, highly sought after.
  • X2CrNi19-11 (1.4306), stainless steel, commonly called 18-10 stainless steel, for cutlery heads.
    • It is the best steel for forks and spoons thanks to chrome and nickel which give it an excellent resistance to corrosion and an incomparable brilliance. It is used for high-end cutlery.
  • X50CrMov15 (1.4116), stainless steel also called Z50CD15 (AFNOR designation) for cooking knives.
    It is an enriched steel with chromium, molybdenum and vanadium that allow the blades to reach a hardness of 54-56HRC, ideal for a durable cutting edge while maintaining the necessary flexibility for kitchen use.
  • Sandvik 12C27, stainless steel, for folding knives.
    This steel composition, after heat treatment, allows to obtain a very fine cutting edge (it is used for razor blades) and a good resistance to wear.
  • On request : XC75 Carbon steel, for pocket knives.
    The high carbon content of this steel makes it oxidizable. Nevertheless, it offers unparalleled cutting quality and is easy to sharpen.
