The Japanese Chinese chef's knife 18 cm from the Yaxell brand is distinguished by the 37-layer damask blade with VG-10 hardened steel core, which guarantees long-lasting cutting performance.

Yaxell has been making professional Japanese kitchen knives for everyday use since 1932. They do this in the knife capital of Japan: Seki. Here they combine modern techniques, designs and materials with the historical knowledge and expertise of traditional sword and knife makers.

  • 37 layers of Japanese VG-10 damask steel
  • Hardened to 61 HRC Rockwell
  • Razor-sharp chef's knife with a blade of 18 centimeters.
  • Handle made of strong Micarta
  • Japanese VG10 37 layers damask steel

The knife consists of 37 layers of the best Japanese steel. These layers are placed against a layer of VG10 steel, giving you a knife of 37 layers. This is also called Damask steel. The production technique is centuries old and results in stronger and harder knives. This makes the knives indispensable for every kitchen.

Micarta handle
These Yaxell knives use Micarta in the handle. Micarta is a material consisting of a linen impregnated with an epoxy resin. This makes the material very strong. It can take a beating and is also resistant to water. Micarta is known for offering a lot of grip. You can use this knife well even when it gets wet. The handle has a rounded ergonomic design which ensures that you have the knife comfortably in your hand and have ultimate control over the knife.

All blades are extremely sharp. Due to the perfect balance, they lie comfortably in your hand. Cutting food has never been so easy and fun!
