Hi, to the maker/designer of this knife, how does the warranty work? I received the set of knives (7.5 Santoku and paring) April 12, 2017, and they are definitely sharp. I have only used them several times, have not used them in the dishwasher, and have been very careful with them. I noticed the other day that there is a chip in the middle of the Santoku knife, which is very annoying. Now I have to cut using the part of the knife without a chip. Again, I have not dropped the knife, cut on anything but a chopping board, and have only cut things like vegetables and fruits. Please let me know how I can activate a warranty claim for replacement or repair. It's been a good knife other than that. Thanks!

We got the sandwich knife as part of our set. We weren't sure about it, it's a unique design. Love it. Cut charcuterie thin like the finest deli.

Hey! I was interested in the 8" chef but it's sold out. If you had to estimate, when do you think this drop (or the fusion) will return?

I missed the Fusion drop so I picked one up at Cutlery and More online. Absolutely AWESOME knife and I am certain the rest of the line is magnificent as well. Great balance supreme sharpness and a shape that I as a primary Santoku user love. I am a bit concernern about resharpening, but having done powered metal knives without a problem not worried... just takes a bit more time. My only criticism is of the sharp edges and choil....which will be rounded down on the fusion tonight and the remainder upon reciept. Thanks for offering such quality at reasonable prices.

Can anyone offer some information of the BD1n steel? I have never heard of it and there doesn't seem to be much out there about it. Seems like a highend stainless, can anyone offer a comparison to something like VG-10?

BD1N steel from what I can tell is an amazing steel. I am a steel junky. I have pocket knives with 440c, vg10, s35vn, s30v, m4, m390, s90v, 14c28n. I have sharpened all of those steels so I know how hard it can be get a keen edge while maintaining wear resistance & chipping. What Yaxell offers is amazing from my short time with this steel. I have yet found a need to sharpen my knife as it is still razor sharp. I have never experienced such a shallow angle with great edge retention. At this price point, you can't go wrong. I highly recommend these knives as they are so affordable but don't skimp on quality. Their designs are unique and the micarta handles feel and look amazing.

I'm also curious to know how hard it is to sharpen. I tend to use diamond stones in the coarser grits(300/600/800) and king whetstones for finer(6000/8000) and finish with a stop(10000 diamond compound). The leap form 800 to 6000 isn't actually too bad, the king stones seem to cut pretty fast. While I may not sharpen this knife as much as my current set, I'm wondering if I'll need some stones to fill the gap between 800 and 6000.

Many thanks. I was looking for a branded sheath, not a generic one, but if you say this works for your knife, I will go with it. Thanks again!

I am not able to join the drop and I don't know why. Do you ship to Europe or just the US?

Is there a way to get just the bread knife for this drop? I already own two of the knives.
