Samprene Knives 

The Smithfield ‘Samprene’ range is our most comprehensive range of knives at Samuel Staniforth. Made using polypropylene handles, our samprene knives are available in a range of colours to suit various foodstuffs, designed to help prevent cross contamination of food. 

The ‘Samprene’ handle is made using high-tech machinery and materials in the plastic industry. This new variant of plastic has been designed and developed to combine both the strength and durability of polypropylene with the softness and serenity of rubber. The result, a knife with the perfect combination of outstanding strength and lasting comfort. The blades themselves are made using high quality 420 stainless steel that has added Molybdenum. This gives the steel excellent edge retention, high durability and exceptional rust resistance. 

Sharpened to a 16 degree angle each side and heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of 58, our samprene knives feature a razor sharp edge that is durable enough to handle anything a professional setting can throw at it. Made using a huge range of colours, you’ll be pleased to know that our samprene knives include all of the colours required for a HACCP plan.

Samprene Knives FAQs 

Which Chopping Board Should I Use With My Samprene Knife? 

We recommend using wood or plastic chopping boards only. Avoid steel, ceramic, glass, or stone as these will blunt your samprene knives. 

How To Take Care Of Your Samprene Knife

At Samuel Staniforth, our top tips for taking care of your samprene knife include: 

  • Always keeping your knife dry and clean 

  • Hand washing your knife with warm, soapy water 

  • Never putting your knife in the dishwasher or leaving it soaking in water

  • Drying your knife completely using an absorbent towel

All stainless steel contains some level of carbon. If knives are not cleaned and dried properly, light hueing can occur. We recommend storing your knives on a magnetic wooden block, keeping it protected in a sheath or storing them in a knife roll or wrap. 

What Is The Difference Between Honing and Sharpening Knives? 

Honing and sharpening knives are very different things. Honing removes a very minimal amount of material from a knife’s edge and is more about moving a still sharpened edge back into alignment. This incorrect alignment occurs when the knife gets bent out of shape during use. *Bear in mind that most steels you see are honing steels, not sharpening steels. 

Alternatively, sharpening is about removing material from a completely dull edge. Whilst nothing beats having freshly sharpened knives, remember that every time you sharpen your knife, it removes material from the blade. Over time, this can remove too much of the blade and affect the knife’s ability to cut well. 

A common mistake people make is sharpening their knives too often and not honing them enough. At Samuel Staniforth, we recommend that you hone your knives regularly so that you don’t have to sharpen them as often. As a result, your knives will last a lot longer whilst feeling just as sharp. Take a look at our honing and sharpening steels to find out more.
