The Omega Series Santoku Knife is a ruthless vegetable assassin. The Japanese word 'Santoku' roughly translates to 'three virtues or uses' and refers to the knife's triad versatility as a slicer, a dicer and a mincer. It encompasses the the best features of a chef's knife and Nakiri, wrapped into one exceptionally designed package.
Designed with a noticeably different blade geometry, the Omega Series Santoku features a 7" long blade with a Kiritsuke-like tip. Keeping true to it’s name, the Omega Series Santoku is a jack of all trades. The tapered tip allows for more precise and delicate work such as de-boning and coring, while the flatter blade profile allows the user to excel at push cuts, long slices and chopping, making it an ideal choice for those chefs who prep large numbers of vegetables.
Featuring ultra-premium American forged BD1N-V hyper steel. The blade's composition and added vacuum heat-treatment to 63HRC provide astonishing performance, with a screamingly sharp edge. Painstakingly finished to 8-12° per side by expert blade smiths using the traditional 3-step Honbazuke method. The addition of Nitrogen increases hardness, flexibility, and toughness, while providing exceptional wear resistance, ensuring your blade’s performance will last even-longer and take you further. Gorgeously laminated and hot-forged, the ‘LiquidMetal’ pattern on the blade minimizes drag and stuck on food while maximizing your slicing efficiency, allowing you to glide through prep. The G10 woven fibreglass handle is near impervious to heat, cold and moisture and is presented in a midnight black with subtle dark red colorings.
Centered in the full-tang handle is an ornate and over-sized copper and brass mosaic, creating a distinct and striking appearance. The painstakingly detailed craftsmanship continues with the Dalstrong lionhead insignia carefully engraved on both the mirror-polished end-cap and blade itself.
This knife doesn’t just mean business, it looks it too.
A black PU leather sheath with button clip and distinctive red-stitching is also included to ensure the blades stylish protection and your own safety.
