Cangshan’s Award Winning TN1 Series Knife Line Gets a Major Update

The TN1 Series has a special place in our hearts here at Cangshan. It was one of our 1st designs when we launched our knife brand in 2015 and it was our 1st Red Dot Design Award Winner in 2016. Since then we have expanded our knife lines to include 19 unique and innovative handle designs and have been awarded 22 national and international design awards including 4 German Design Awards in 2018 and a total of 7 Red Dot Design Awards.

As the TN1 Series grows in popularity we continue to research and test ways to improve the quality of our knives, investing in better manufacturing equipment and utilizing the fine grained and incredibly durable, stain resistant Swedish Sandvik® 14C28N Steel. Being a fresh brand in the cutlery market we know we cannot sell our long history, we can only make perfect knives.

The TN1 Series has been awarded the 2016 Red Dot Winner, 2016 A’ Plantium Winner, 2016 Gourmet Retailers Editor’s Pick and 2018 German Design Award for it’s forward thinking design.

This is the reason behind our recent update of the TN1 Series. We have switched the whole knife line from German to Swedish steel which means these knives come out of the box sharper and will stay that way up to 5 times longer than comparable German steel knives. We have also added a satin finish to the handles to further improve a secure grip for the chef.

At Cangshan we believe in focusing on who is making the product instead of where the products are being made. We see ourselves as a global brand, connecting with and utilizing manufactures and resources based on their quantifiable value. It is our goal to lead the way in breaking the negative stigmas often associated with international manufacturing. By offering superior products featuring materials and manufacturing from around the world at highly competitive price points Cangshan opens up, drives the dialogue and proves the benefits of collaboration between diverse and passionate creators and innovators in the global marketplace.
