Special heat treatment through accurate temperature control
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 with a long-lasting performance. At the same time, this special heat treatment makes the blade corrosion resistant. The blade is hardened to Rockwell 62-63 degrees for SG2 core knives and Rockwell 60-61 degrees for VG10 core knives.
