There's hardly a single professional chef in the world who hasn't at some point used a 20cm chef's knife. This type of knife is considered as standard equipment in every commercial kitchen as it combines the strength and power of a large blade with the refinement of a pointed knife for doing fine work. One of the most striking features of the Ran 20cm chef's knife is that it feels like a much smaller blade when in use. Many large chefs' knives feel large and clumsy but the Ran feels poised, precise and capable of undertaking a wide variety of tasks. This knife is an ideal choice for a demanding professional chef or a keen and enthusiastic amateur.

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.

The word 'Ran' means 'The Excellent in Japanese; Yaxell Ran knives are truly excellent in every way and reflect the highest standards of Oriental quality and performance. Knives of this quality, poise and balance are genuinely inspiring to use and we're sure that their performance will put many others in the shade. Even after the most prolonged use your Ran knife will retain a fabulous cutting edge and still feel as comfortable as the first moment that you picked it up.
