Yaxell Corporation has inherited these ancient sword smiths'
traditional skills, and has been crafting professional kitchen
knives since the company's establishment in 1932.
Kitchen knives exist as essential products in our daily lives.
This is the reason why we continue to strive for the kind of quality knife that customers not only want, but need. To this end, we develop new products from the ground up, designed to fit a variety of purposes and lifestyles.
Combining the best of advanced technology with the unsurpassed knowledge and expertise of traditional craftsmen, we have created several high-end knife lines. Each high-end knife line has one Japanese character as its name: "豪GOU", "嵐 RAN", "膳ZEN" and "紋 MON". They are highly recommended by not only Japanese domestic customers, but by customers all over the world.
