Abstract

The demand for more durable edge shape has increased for higher cutting performance of cutlery, such as razor blades. In a plasma nitriding, high ion density can be obtained efficiently by installing a hollow cathode, and the samples can be cleaned, etched, heated and nitrided effectively. In this study, the durability and cutting performance of stainless steel razor blade treated by the plasma nitriding were investigated in order to evaluate the applicability of plasma nitriding into the surface treatment of razor blades. The experimental results made it clear that the durability of blade was improved by the plasma nitriding, and that the cutting performance was kept in the case of low process temperature.
