The Yaxell Taishi Kiritsuke Knife is designed for all the tasks for which you'd use a chef's knife. It works extremely well with vegetables, julienne, dice, and more. Can also be used for cleaning and portioning boneless proteins, particularly fish, and slices cooked proteins with grace and ease. The straight edge won't rock through cuts such as a traditional chef's knife. Yaxell Taishi's core material is VG10 super stainless steel, which is clad, covered by high quality stainless steel from both sides. The Katana sword wave line gives an impressive appearance on the blade. The handle is made of black beech pakkawood which provides outstanding stability and balance. The attractive bolster and embossed end-cap of the handle is made of brushed stainless steel to ensure great balance for the entire knife. Yaxell Taishi is handcrafted exclusively in Seki City, Japan with a lifetime warranty.
