Premax Ring Lock System Kitchen Shears, 8-1/2" Overall - 04PX010
PM04PX010: Kitchen Shears
Premax Ringlock System - For generations, high quality shears are made in the small Italian town of Premana, close to the Lago di Como. The local manufacturers, with their modern production processes and carefully selected materials in combination with their attention to detail, satisfy the demanding customer with their high quality European manufacturing methods, more than the Asian competitors' mass products.
A very good example for that is the new Ringlock Scissors series. The well known connecting screw is replaced by an advanced locking system, developed and patented by Premax. The Ringlock System is made with the help of special tooling out of the watchmaker's industry and works with a Teflon ring and a bearing made of aluminum, which guarantees a permanent tight fit of the two halves. The Ringlock System guarantees a maximum of precision and a prolonged durability of the cutting edges and thus of the complete scissor. All models are made of high quality stainless steel, with an exclusive surface finish, and enthuses the customer with their modern design.
These heavy duty kitchen scissors are made of high performance stainless steel with sturdy black plastic handles, featuring a built in plier-like tool and an overall length of 8-1/2".
The majority of the articles is manufactured using AISI 1050 carbon steel, wihich guarantees a high cutting ability and endurance. Some articles are manufactured also AISI 420 stainless steel, which offers high resistance to corrosion and a optimal cutting ability and endurance.
The scissors are assembled with a screw that allows the regulation and an eventual disassembly for a professional sharpening.
The blades are hardened with chemical salt heat treatment to a hardness of 52-26 HRC, to guarantee a good cutting edge resistance and blades flexibility.
The raw materials undergo several polishing and grinding steps in order to obtain an excellent appearance. The articles manufactured with carbon steel are nickel-plated to protect the steel from corrosion and give a brilliant look to the product. Only the inner blade and the cutting edge are sharpened to improve the cutting performance. It is advisable to avoid contact with water, steam and generally humid conditions.
Some articles are available also with chrome-plated finish, which offers more resistace to corrosion, in comparison with nickel-plated items. Upon request we cannproduce any article manufactured with carbon steel in the chrome-plated finish. Some items are gold-plated, sand-blasted or lacquered.
