Special Heat treatment: Yaxell blades are heated in a kiln to a very high temperature and then ice hardened. Then they are again tempered using high temperature to make the blade strong and durable for long-lasting performance. At the same time this special heat treatment makes the blade corrosion resistant and give the RAN series a rockwell hardness of 60-61 degrees.

The benefits of Damascus multi-layered steel:

* Very hard core cutting edge
* Super sharp edge
* Corrosion resistant
* Long lasting performance

The Damascus multi-layered steel is specially designed for high quality blades. It was designed to maintain sharpness and durability without becoming brittle. Damascus multi layered steel is extremely sharp and will take and keep their edge much longer than other types of softer steel. Damascus multi-layered steel is made by cladding a core steel called VG10 with layers of a more flexible stainless steels leaving just the cutting edge of the VG10 exposed. The result of this sandwiched blade is a tough durable blade that can take an exquisitely keen edge.

RAN Series blades:

VG10 stainless is clad with 34 layers of alternating soft and hard high-carbon stainless steel on each side producing 69 layers of rust resistant Damascus style steel. The blade has an extremely sharp cutting angle. The special heat treatment gives the blades the outstanding rating of HRC61 on the Rockwell scale ensuring long lasting cutting performance.
