Description

The Yaxell Super Gou Kiritsuke Knife is designed for all the tasks for which you'd use a chef's knife. It works extremely well with vegetables, julienne, dice, and more. Can also be used for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins, particularly fish, and slices cooked proteins with grace and ease. The straight edge won't rock through cuts such as a traditional chef's knife. Yaxell Super Gou blades feature an extremely sharp cutting edge. Constructed of Japanese SG2 Micro Carbide powder stainless steel, which is enveloped by 160 layers combined with alternating soft and hard 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 red and black 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.

    An exquisite knife. Wow!

    First, I would like to say this isn't my first "good" knife. There are over 30 high quality German- and Japanese-style knives in my kitchen knife stable.

    That being said, this knife surpasses all my expectations. I've been using this knife for about a month. Every time I use it I like it more. Vegetables, fruit, proteins - it does them all effortlessly.

    It was crazy sharp out of the box. I can feel no degradation in the blade's sharpness. The blade is as keen today as the day it came out of the box.

    Comfortable, perfectly balanced for a pinch grip and agile. Not too heavy, not too light. It's an awesome work of bladesmithing skill and craftsmanship.

    It has become my go-to knife for almost every kitchen task. I highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates and wants a marvelous knife.

    Well made knife!

    Very happy with my purchase of the Yaxell Kiritsuke knife. It balances well and is very sharp. Makes preparing meals that much easier. The knife looks great as well. Time will tell how well the blade holds up against wear. I will also say that although the blade is 12 degrees, it is only a minor difference in feel when chopping vegetables compared to my VG10 blades

    Perfection

    I do not know if I ever use this knife. I bought it with a stand, so the only missing part is a glass enclosure to put the knife on display like in an art museum. Beautiful and functional knife.
