With only 25 sets made this limited-edition set is the ultimate collectors addition. Every aspect of the construction of the new Yaxell Super Gou Ypsilon knives has been overseen by expert craftsman in Seki Japan, the famous Japanese city of blades where legendary Samurai swords have been produced for over 700 years.
Each knife is made from 193 layers of folded steel with a core of micro carbide powdered SG2 stainless steel which has never before been produced. The many layers of steel means each blade has superior sharpness and edge retention as well as creating a beautiful looking blade. Engraved on each blade there are four characters, which read ‘Super Gou, The Samurai Sprit’. The handles are made of black micarta and feature a Samurai Crest inlay, one of the most traditional in Japan. Micarta is 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.
Such beautiful knives deserve to be displayed in style and this stunning set does not disappoint. All three knives sit perfectly on a Katana stand, traditionally used to display Samurai swords. The Yaxell Super Gou Ypsilon 3 Piece Knife Set With Katana Stand includes the essential knives every chef needs, a 20cm Chef’s Knife, 16cm Santoku knife and 12cm utility knife so whatever the kitchen task is, reach for your Yaxell Ypsilon knives and start your gastronomic adventure!
Established in 1932, Yaxell perfectly combine traditional craftmanship and cutting-edge technology to create premium quality Japanese knives in a number of ranges - Super Gou Ypsilon, Super Gou, Gou and Ran. Every knife is specialist in its design and quality to assist you with your everyday culinary tasks. Yaxell originated in Seki, Japan. The history of their knife making skills began 730 years ago making Samurai Swords in the Kamakura Period when a swordsmith called Motoshige moved to Seki and started working with Katana, a Japanese curved sword for samurais.
