Yaxell Zen is a prized knife series! Three years in a row, the show's chef's knife has won aftonbladet's big knife test. The blades of the knives consist of 37 layers of steel. The core is made of hard VG10 steel and other steel layers of a softer steel. This build-up gives the knives a fantastic edge combined with extreme strength and rust resistance. The hardness rate is 61 HRC.
The series has a very unique character. The blades have a hammered surface that Yaxell has chosen to preserve on the upper part of the knives. The lower part has been polished, so that the beautiful steel layers appear. As an added finish, all leaves are decorated with a hand-punched logo. The knife handle is made of black micarta. The material is produced by joining linen cloth and special plastic under high pressure. This provides a hard, water resistant and hygienic material that is well suited in a kitchen environment. The handle is attached with the help of two powerful steel rivets.
