Yaxell JAPAN LIMITED Version YO-U Series
The Yaxell YO-U knife series is offered exclusively in the Japanese domestic market to satisfy high-quality expectations and requirements from Japanese customers.
The core material is VG10 "super stainless steel", which is clad (covered) by high quality stainless steel from both sides. The sword wave line is clearly observed on the blade and the blade has an extremely sharp cutting angle and long cutting performance.
The handle of "YO-U Bianco" uses laminated reinforced wood that is more resistant to moisture than general wood. Laminated reinforced wood is a strong material with little expansion while leaving the texture unique to wood by allowing resin to penetrate into the wood. Two stainless steel tacks fix the handle. The base is made of 18-8 stainless steel.
