Special Production Process
Yaxell blades are heated in a kiln to a very high temperature and then ice-hardened. They are then tempered again at a high temperature to make the blade strong, durable and corrosion-resistant for long-lasting performance.
The core material VG10 "super steel" is composed of Cobalt, Molybdenum, Vanadium and Carbon. VG10 stainless steel is clad with 34 layers of soft and hard high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing 69 layered rust-resistant Damascus-look. The blade has an extremely sharp cutting-angle. Our special heat treatment gives our blades the outstanding hardness rating of HRC61 on the Rockwell scale, ensuring long lasting cutting performance.
The handle is made out of FDA-approved black Canvas-Micarta, which is an odourless and enormously durable material made of resin and linen. This material lasts decades. The end of the handle is made out of stainless steel, which gives the knife outstanding stability. Two stainless steel rivets fasten the handle tightly.
