WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Mark II is a fancy way of saying “version 2” and we like to be different… Also, the boss man kind of liked it.
440C however, is more deliberate. This is a 440 grade stainless steel, and has the highest carbon content for a 400 stainless steel series.
It is then heat-treated to reach 43-45 HRC. (let’s just say it’s freaking hard!)
OKAY SO IT’S HARD, BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR PERFORMANCE?
The main purpose of the material change is all about that trademark edge! Using such hard steel, allows the edge to be maintained, ensuring perfect shape and maximum surface coverage, use after use!
You may also notice some other improvements:
- More damage resistant
- Smoother glide during puck-polish
One more thing…
We have also changed the edge from a 65˚ edge to a 45˚ edge, which has ensured even less suction in the basket. Happy days!
…. same price
…. It’s all in the small details which make the difference!
We have stopped making the previous version, and all units going forward will be MKII 440C.
