If you appreciate a well built tactical knife, you should really check out these Dragon kitchen knives by Yaxell Japan.

These Japanese handcrafted Dragon kitchen knives feature nitrogen steel that has a Rockwell rating of 63. The steel allows the knife to take the famous Japanese edge, but also gives you the legendary German strength. No chipping or defects!

The Dragon Series of knives are handcrafted in Seki, Japan by Yaxell, one of the leading knife manufacturers since 1932.The blades are constructed of one-piece High-Grade American BD1N Nitrogen Steel by Carpenter Technologies, hardened to HRC63. The handles are constructed of highly heat-resistant, FDA approved, non-shrink Micarta, with stainless steel rivets and bolsters. These extremely sharp and durable knives are the perfect blend of Japanese Craftsmanship and advanced American steel and technology.

The company was founded in 1932. Headquarters are located in Seki, the knife capital of Japan. With two factories, one in Japan, and one in China, the company employs a total of 220 people. Yaxell's products are sold in 30 countries, and are used internationally by many top chefs. Rated #1 by the German "Test Magazine", Yaxell uses an exclusive tempering and hardening process, which results in a finer and longer lasting edge.

Great Steel!
This is my go-to knive. The steel is very hard and the handle fits well in my hand. It holds an incredible edge. It is a blend of American Steel and Japanese craftsmanship. It is a beautiful but not a fancy knife. It is designed to be used rather than looked at, like some knifes.I am a former steel worker. I know good still when I see it. As Benjamin Franklin once said no one makes a good knife out of bad still.This knife is made out of good Steel.
