Yaxell Gou knives are made by skilled craftsmen in Seki, the famous Japanese city of blades where legendary Samurai swords have been produced for over 700 years. Gou knives continue this tradition of fine workmanship. Each one is made from 101 layers of folded Damascus steel with a core of micro carbide powdered SG2 stainless steel hardened to Rockwell 63 for extreme sharpness and edge retention as well as giving the blade its striking good looks. The handles are made of Micarta, a very strong and hygienic material made from layers of canvas cloth set in polycarbonate resin and formed at high temperature and pressure. The resulting knife handle is every bit as hygienic as a stainless steel one but much more comfortable to hold, particularly after prolonged use.
The word 'Gou' translates from Japanese as 'the superb'. We think that's far too small a word to describe the unparalleled excellence of Gou knives. Every aspect of the knife, from its clean crisp lines to the Damascus pattern on the blade and its phenomenal handling is made to the very highest standards to stir and arouse your senses. Picking up your Gou knife makes every meal that you prepare into a gastronomic adventure. We believe that a Gou knife can provide all the inspiration you need to realise your full culinary potential.
