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.
Special heat treatment through accurate temperature control
Yaxell blades are heated in a kiln to a very high temperature and then ice hardened. Then, they are again tempered using high temperature to make the blade strong and durable with long-lasting performance. At the same time, this special heat treatment makes the blade corrosion resistant. The blade is hardened to Rockwell 62-63 degrees for SG2 core knives and Rockwell 60-61degrees for VG10 core knives.
