Kitchen knives exist as essential products in our daily lives. This is the reason why we continue to strive for the kind of quality knife that customers not only want, but need. To this end, we develop new products from the ground up, designed to fit a variety of purposes and lifestyles. Combining the best of advanced technology with the unsurpassed knowledge and expertise of traditional craftsmen, we have created several high-end knife lines. Each high-end knife line has one Japanese character as its name: "豪GOU", "嵐 RAN", "膳ZEN" and "紋 MON". They are highly recommended by not only Japanese domestic customers, but by customers all over the world. Made in Japan Tsuchimon knife for Sushi Masters
Blade The blade core is made from Japanese VG10 'super stainless' steel clad by high quality stainless steel from both sides. The hammer marks on the upper part of the blade make its look very artistic. The KATANA sword wave line is clearly observed on the blade. It has an extremely sharp cutting-angle with the hardness rating of HRC61 on the Rockwell scale.
Handle The handle is made out of FDA-approved black Canvas-Micarta, which is an enormously solid and durable material made of resin and linen. This material lasts decades. Different from other handle material, it is non-shrink and odorless. It is polished perfectly and fastened tightly by two stainless steel rivets. It is supported by the high quality 18-10 stainless steel inside, which gives the knife outstanding stability and balance. The Yaxell logo is engraved on the grip end in a noble style. The shape of the handle allows tireless working in all cutting techniques. Tsuchimon is a registered trade mark of Yaxell Corporation. This word means 'Wave line and Hammered marks on the blade' in Japanese.
