Blade
The blade has an extremely sharp cutting edge. It is made out of
Japanese SG2 Micro Carbide powder stainless steel, which is
enveloped by 50 layers on each side with soft and hard stainless
steel. This powdered steel contains a lot of carbon and has an
unprecedented hardness of approximately 63 Rockwell.
Powdered steel is used because it ensures a high degree of
purity and strength. The resulting blade is extremely hard,
ensuring an exceptionally sharp cutting edge. The surface
impresses with a fascinating Damascus design pattern - a symbol
of the highest quality knife and its signature, GOU 101 layers.

 

Handle
The handle is made out of FDA-approved black Canvas-Micarta,
which is an odorless and enormously durable material made of
resin and linen. The canvas material is dyed black and brilliantly
finished. The inner handle is a solid forged 18-10 stainless ingot
that has been welded onto the multi-layered steel blade. The
welded junction is invisible, and as strong as the material itself.
Yaxell is unique in the use of this super strong handle
construction. The trade mark ‘GOU’ is engraved on the grip end
in a noble style.
