About Yaxell Zen:

Hailing from the renowned knife/sword city of Seki, we bring you the beautiful Yaxell Zen knives. This word means “the most healthy meals” in Japanese. Zen has a VG10 stainless steel cutting core with a super hardness of HRC61 on the Rockwell scale. The knives in the series have a 37-layer blade with a simple Damascus steel pattern with hammered marks on the upper part and its Japanese name stamped on it. The black Canvas-Micarta handle is attached with two stainless steel rivets. It is a good-looking knife that delivers long lasting cutting performance. Like all the ranges of the Japanese Cutler Yaxell, the Zen knife series impresses by its quality and design.

About Yaxell:

Founded in 1932, Yaxell today remains a family-run knife maker in Seki, an iconic city in the history of Japanese knife-making.

Every knife is hand-made - from the forging of the blade to the carving of the logos. Yaxell blades have won numerous awards all over the globe and are used and acclaimed by world class chefs. Exclusive to Divertimenti, we are the Yaxell experts.

During production, Yaxell knives go through a very stringent process in which the blade is heated in a kiln at extreme temperatures, then ice hardened before it’s placed in high heat a second time to ensure the blade is durable, strong, and guaranteed to offer top long-lasting performance. This type of special production process also makes the knife’s blade corrosion-resistant.
