Seki is considered the capital of Japanese swords (Katana) and knives and can trace its blade-making history back 780 years to the Kamakura period (1185-1333). Seki is world renowned for its traditional and exceptional sword-making that over time developed into the making of kitchen knives for daily use.
Yaxell has built on this ancient blade-making legacy by combining the best of advanced technology with the unsurpassed knowledge and expertise of traditional craftsmanship.
The Yaxell stainless-steel blades are heated in a kiln to a very high temperature and then ice hardened. They are then again hardened using high temperature to make the blade strong and durable with long-lasting performance. This special heat treatment makes the blades resistant to corrosion.
The Yaxell handles are made of Micarta, a natural material of resin and linen that gives optimal strength and best hygiene by closing any gaps between the handle and the steel blade.
