Its size makes it ideal for a variety of cutting styles and is light and easy to manipulate. This knife is crafted from 69 layers of VG10 high carbon and stainless steel metal, creating ultimate strength, a keen edge, and a signature Damascus appearance. Meaning “The excellent” in Japanese, Ran is the perfect name for a series of knives proudly used by some of the top chefs in both Japan and France. Balanced, sharp, and beautiful, this knife features an ergonomic handle that is created using a canvas-micarta material which is a combination of resin and linen. This FDA approved feature offers a full tang, stainless steel end, resists heat up to 302°F, does not corrode, and is fastened with two steel rivets, giving it outstanding durability and ease of use. Each blade in this series features a hardness rating of HRC61 on the Rockwell scale, ensuring long-lasting cutting performance with a keen edge that will stay razor sharp. The manufacturer recommends Yaxell Ran knives be sharpened with the Yaxell sharpener, a Japanese water stone or a diamond steel honed for sharpening, to yield the longest lasting edge possible and an extended life of your blade.
