■History and Tradition
Special heat treatment through accurate temperature control The outstanding edge of the Yaxell knives has been achieved by combining the best of advanced technology with the unsurpassed knowledge and expertise of the craftsmen making these professional kitchen knives. Their skills have been cultivated in traditional Japanese sword making techniques, handed down from generation to generation over seven centuries in Seki, Japan, the capital of swords and knives.
The blade has an extremely sharp cutting edge. It is made out of Japanese SG2 Micro Carbide powder stainless steel, which is enveloped by 50 layers on one side with soft and hard stainless steel. This powdered steel contains a lot of carbon and has an unprecedented hardness of approximately 63 Rockwell. Powdered steel is used because it ensures a high degree of purity and strength. The resulting blade is extremely hard, ensuring an exceptionally sharp cutting edge. The surface impresses with a fascinating Damascus design pattern - a symbol of the highest quality knife and its signature, GOU 101 layers.
The handle is made out of FDA-approved black Canvas-Micarta PLUS, which is an odorless and enormously durable material made of resin and linen. The canvas material is dyed black and brilliantly finished. This material lasts decades. The handle is attached tightly using three stainless steel rivets.｠The end of the handle is made of 18-10 stainless steel, which gives the knife outstanding stability and balance. The trade mark‘ GOU’ is engraved on the grip end in a noble style.
