Yaxell Japan 9" Slicing Knife
This knife is beautiful, well made, sharp, & maintains it's edge well. The fit and finish on my example is flawless. Unfortunately, the Yaxell Dragon knives that are made in Japan are no longer being produced and are limited to old stock on hand. The Apogee Dragon Classic knives made in China are not of the same quality. If that makes a difference to you, be sure the knife you purchase is the Yaxell Dragon knife made in Japan.
