Yaxell Knives: The Ran Series

The outstanding edge of the Yaxell knife has been achieved by combining the best of advanced technology with the unsurpassed knowledge and expertise of the craftspeople making these professional kitchen knives. Their skills have been cultivated in traditional Japanese sword-making techniques handed down from generation to generation over seven centuries in Seki, Japan, the capital of swords and knives. "Ran" means "the excellent" in Japanese.

Special Heat Treatment Through Accurate Temperature Control

Yaxell blades are heated in a kiln to a very high temperature and then ice hardened. Then they are again tempered using a high temperature to make the blade strong and curable with long-lasting performance. At the same time, this special heat treatment makes the blade corrosion-resistant. The blade is hardened to Rockwell 60-61 degrees for RAN 69 knives.

Yaxell Ran
Benefits of Damascus Multi-Layered Steel:
  • Hard
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Extremely sharp edge
  • Long-lasting performance

Damascus multi-layered steel is specially designed for high-quality blades. It was designed to maintain sharpness and durability without becoming brittle. Damascus multi-layered steel is extremely sharp and will take and keep its sharp edge much longer than other types of steel.

Damascus multi-layered steel is made by cladding a core steel called VG10 with layers of a more flexible stainless steel, leaving just the cutting edge of the VG10 steel exposed. The result of this "sandwiched" blade is a tough blade that can take an exquisitely keen edge.

Durable Blade with a Sharp Edge
Yaxell Ran Blade
Exclusive tempering and hardening process for long-lasting sharpness. View larger.

The core material VG10 "super steel" is composed of cobalt, molybdenum, vanadium, and carbon. VG10 stainless steel is clad with 34 layers of soft and hard high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing the 69 layered, rust-resistant Damascus look.

The blade also has an extremely sharp cutting-angle. Our special heat treatment gives our blades the outstanding hardness rating of HRC61 on the Rockwell scale, ensuring long-lasting cutting performance.

Ergonomic, Riveted Handle
Yaxell Ran Handle
Dual-riveted ergonomic handle provides a secure grip. View larger.

The handle is constructed of FDA-approved black canvas micarta, an odorless, enormously durable material made of resin and linen. The material lasts decades. The break-resistant handle features a full, sturdy 18-10 tang (no corrosion); resists heat up 302 degrees F (150 degrees C); and provides a stainless-steel capped end, which gives the knife outstanding stability. Two stainless-steel rivets fasten the handle tightly.
