New Cutlery Maker Debuts with New Metal Alloy
September 11, 2013,
ALISO VIEJO, Calif.-VMatter, a new premium cutlery manufacturer, is introducing a line of knives that uses an amorphous metal alloy that was discovered at California Institute of Technology through research funded in part by NASA. The alloy will be used to develop cutlery that can hold a sharp edge significantly longer than steel, the company said.
The VMatter Cutlery collection, which will include an 8-inch chef's knife, an 8-inch slicing knife, a 7-inch santoku knife and a 4-inch paring knife, is currently scheduled for a December 2013 retail debut.
