Yaxell Ran knives are made in Seki, Japan; a city famous for centuries for the manufacture of Samurai swords and fine Japanese cutlery. They're made from 69 layers of Damascus steel with a core of VG10, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Vanadium stainless steel hardened to Rockwell 61. This gives Ran knives their outstanding cutting performance and edge retention as well as the dramatic, attractive 'wood grain' pattern of layered steel on the blade which is unique to each knife. Every time that a sheet of white hot steel is folded and hammered, impurities are forced out of the metal making it purer and stronger. Each repeated folding makes the central layer harder and purer which in turn means that it can be ground to a sharper, longer lasting edge. The outer layers are tougher and more robust making the knife strong and durable. The more layers of steel that a knife blade consists of, the stronger the knife becomes and the better cutting performance becomes.

The handles of all Yaxell Ran knives are made of Micarta, a very strong and hygienic material made from layers of canvas cloth set in polycarbonate resin and formed at high temperature and pressure. The resulting knife handle is every bit as hygienic as a stainless steel one but much more comfortable to hold, particularly after prolonged use.

Hi Don,

Thank you for your enquiry.
Yes these blades have a 15 degree angle. We recommend regular sharpening and the type of steel which the Yaxell knives are made of require a great deal of care. I have given below some knife care guide advise to help you on the best way to maintain you knives in tip top condition below:

Use; Keep your knife sharp. A sharp blade is safer than a blunt one. Never use on glass cutting boards.
Cleaning; Hand washing is recommended for most knives. Keep your knife dry, the entire knife, not just the blade.
Storage; Store in a knife block/rack this will help the knife stay sharper for longer and is a safer way to store out of reach of children too.

Best Wishes,

Steamer Trading
