Yaxell's manufacturing process is based on old swordsmith techniques that have been parented and combined with modern technology. The blades are punched out by hand from a high-quality steel plate. After that, the leaves are heated in three batches, in the last step to a temperature of 1,050 degrees. Then the knives are cooled down to -75 degrees, and then heated once more. The final step is unique to Japanese knife manufacturing and the secret behind the sharp and rust-resistant knives. After hardening, the knife handles are mounted on. Yaxell's knife handles are made of two types of materials: pakkawood and micarta. Both materials are ideal for kitchen environments and provide handles that are comfortable to hold. Finally, each knife is sharpened by hand by a grinder master and many of them are engraved even with the Japanese cartoon character.
