Description

The Yaxell Ypsilon Chef's Knife is designed for slicing, dicing, and chopping a full range of fruits, vegetables, and more. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently rocked through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Yaxell Ypsilon SG2 blades feature an extremely sharp cutting edge. Constructed of Japanese SG2 Micro Carbide powder stainless steel, which is enveloped by 193 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 black canvas micarta with Samurai Crest and red spacers. The canvas material is dyed 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.

    Amazingly sharp and balanced.

    I purchased this and the smaller knife as a pair. Both are beautiful, but beyond their looks, they work. The knives are well balanced and the handles are very comfortable. I find myself still using my index finger on the blade, but that is personal preference (or habit). From a pure artistic standpoint, they are worth the money, but I think that as they age they will prove their value.

    Shiny

    The packaging is good. I love the amazing design. Out of the box sharpness is good but it can be better. It can cut and meet expectations but it's not razor sharp. I'll sharpen it to razor sharp when it starts to dull and I know I'll enjoy doing it. And this knife is shiny out of the box. It is a work of art.

    a beautiful knife

    I sharpen knives for a living and because of that I have quite a collection of knives. Up until now my favourite was the yaxell super you but now this incredibly gorgeous and hideously sharp knife is. Straight out of the box it's sharp but i dull them and then sharpen. I put about a 8-12 degree angle on it and this knife could probably shave your face. The steel is very hard so always use a wooden chopping board and it will stay sharp for weeks. I strop every time I use it and 3 weeks later it's still just as sharp. I have made my friends very jealous.

    Awesome Knife

    This is an awesome knife. The fit and finish is flawless. Razor sharp right out of the box. I was worried about the handle profile being to much for my small hands but it was very comfortable.
