An impressive tool in any butcher or chef's armoury, the Shogun Series 12.5” Breaking & Butcher Knife is a commanding knife in any busy kitchen. With its herculean design, the long blade effortlessly performs large incisions and prime cuts, slicing through any kind of meat without any tearing or shredding. The curved blade profile provides an ingenious design for skinning and portioning more efficiently with fewer strokes. Improving this blade further are the rock-hollow divots which significantly reduce surface contact and tension so that stuck-on foods are a thing of the past. Effortlessly tear through large cuts of beef, pork and poultry like butter in a single, swift slice, trim briskets and break down large game (moose, deer, elk and more) without getting lost in the meat. Hand-polishing reveals a magnificent visual pattern, Dalstrong’s ‘Tsunami Rose’. The super-steel core possesses extra high carbon levels, allowing for scalpel-like sharpness with exceptionally long lasting edge retention. Each knife is hand-finished in the Honbazuke 3-step method, creating a beautiful mirror polished edge at a staggeringly acute 8-10 degrees per side.
The Shogun Series handle is meticulously constructed of G-10 Garolite, an incredibly strong military-grade inert and non-porous fiberglass-like material. It is highly impervious to both heat and moisture with life-long durability. The carefully engineered ergonomic handle is designed for superior hand control and comfort. while simultaneously being stabilized with an engraved end-cap for agile performance. To further enhance the beauty, an intricate copper mosaic pin adorns the center rivet. A premium quality polymer Dalstrong PerfectFit saya (sheath) with embossed Dalstrong logo and pin is included with the set to ensure your blade is carefully protected.
