Established in 1932 Yaxell Knives have been developing high quality professional grade kitchen knives for over half a century. In the beginning all Yaxell product were 100% hand forged, but over the years the company has embraced the benefits of combining cutting edge technology with traditional techniques.

Today Yaxell still utilizes traditional sword making techniques in their production process and every knife is finished by hand. However, the company has developed proprietary ice hardening techniques that improve the hardness and durability of the knives and help to resist patina in high carbon steel.

Yaxell knives are some of the best quality professional grade knives available and are used by chefs around the world including a number one, two and three Michelin stared chefs.

The Yaxell Kitchen Cutlery Company is based in Seki, Japan. Seki has over seven centuries of sword and knife making tradition. Many of the black smiths that help create Yaxell knives are second and third generation blacksmiths and bring years of experience and knife make tradition to the Yaxell Product.

We have partnered with Yaxell to bring the Gou and Ran series to Modern Cooking and we think you will find these knives have great edge retention, balance and ergonomics.
