The flat cutting edge encourages you to cut with a backwards slicing action which is both very easy and intuitive to achieve. The tip of the Santoku knife also lets you finely dice foods with ease. Santoku knives have become increasingly popular at Steamer Trading in recent years with many of our customers choosing one in preference to a conventional chef's knife. The Japanese use the Santoku or 'three cuts' knife for preparing meat, fish and vegetables at home. If you've never tried one then we're sure that you'll soon fall in love with this versatile cook's knife. it's light and easy to handle but the blade is deep and strong enough to cut all manner of root vegetables with ease.


Yaxell Super Gou knives are the second most superior in the Yaxell Range and are made by skilled craftsmen in Seki, the famous Japanese city of blades where legendary Samurai swords have been produced for over 700 years. Super Gou knives continue this tradition of fine workmanship. Each one is made from an impressive 161 layers of folded Damascus steel with a core of micro carbide powdered SG2 stainless steel affording superior 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 the Super 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 Super Gou knife can provide all the inspiration you need to realise your full culinary potential.
