Yaxell Super Gou knives are made by skilled craftsmen in Japan, in the same place blades where legendary Samurai swords have been produced for over 700 years. Super Gou knives continue this tradition of incredible workmanship. Each one is made from 161 layers of folded Damascus steel with a core of micro carbide powdered SG2 stainless steel. The corrosion resistant powdered carbon steel has an unprecedented 63 Rockwell hardness. 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 a fascinating Damascus design pattern. The handle is made of FDA approved red and black resin and linen Canvas Micarta with three stainless steel rivets. The canvas material is dyed red and black and brilliantly finished to last for decades. The engraved end-cap of the handle is made of 18/10 stainless steel, which provides outstanding stability and balance.
