Yaxell Ran Slicing Knife 25.5cm

£149 £179
Fine, accurate slicing is the basis of most Oriental cuisine. Many ingredients have light textures and delicate flavours which can be naturally amplified by slicing them extremely thinly. This creates a large surface area which releases flavours both into the taste buds on your tongues and the olfactory region at the back of your nose for maximum perception.

The long slender blade of this 25.5cm Gou slicing knife will effortlessly cut the thinnest slivers of food whether it's salmon for blinis or sashimi, vegetables for garnish or stir frying or simply cutting perfect slices from the Sunday roast. The satisfaction that you'll gain from the brilliant performance that this knife provides will only be equalled by the quality and presentation of the food that it cuts. This is a carving knife that we're sure you'll keep for life and will be passed down through the generations.

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.
