Yaxell Super Gou Ypsilon Santoku Knife 16.5cm

£449 £549

One of the very finest ranges of Japanese knife ever conceived, every aspect of the construction of the 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 Super Gou Ypsilon knife is made from 193 layers of folded steel with a core of micro carbide powdered SG2 stainless steel - a construction first created exclusively for these amazing and unique knives. 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 Spirit’. 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.  

These knives are highly covetable and will give continual joy and a lifetime of superb service to any aficionado of the art of the Japanese knife maker. 

This multipurpose Japanese Santoku knife is extremely easy to use and accomplishes a wide variety of tasks with ease. it's perfect for finely slicing meat or vegetables while the point allows you to accurately dice onions, shallots or chillies. The deep blade has the strength and power to cut through tougher vegetables while the depth of the blade combined with its straight cutting edge make the knife simple and instinctive to handle. 

Santoku knives are lighter and sharper than a traditional Chef's knife due to the thinness of the blade. These knives are particularly suited to the preparation of vegetables and are ideal for devotees of Asian and Fusion cuisines. Their compact size and superb sharpness make them indispensable in a well-equipped kitchen.
