Gladiator Series 8" "The Crixus" Chef Knife - Chef & Cleaver Hybrid
Named after one of the most famous Gladiators ever to enter the Coliseum, 'The Crixus' chef knife is a specialty blade designed for meat lovers and BBQ enthusiasts. Part chef knife, part cleaver, this hybrid is the go-to tool of choice for those who prep meat, and lots of it! The curved profile allows for clean, perfect slices through flesh, skin and sinew, while the width and weighted front half let you chop like a cleaver for easy sectioning and portioning. The hole allows for hanging the knife, or store in the included PerfectFit sheath. Poultry, beef, pork, wild game and even fruits and veggies easily fall prey to this blade, which is versatile enough to handle much more beyond proteins. You may find yourself never reaching for a conventional chef's knife again. The knife is a fun and highly functional must have!
The Gladiator Series blade is precision forged from a single piece of imported premium quality, high-carbon ThyssenKrupp German steel, ensuring an ultra sharp edge with excellent wear and stain resistance. Hand sharpened 14-16 degrees per side, the Dalstrong Gladiator Series slicer is a high performance kitchen workhorse.
Featuring a beautiful, ergonomic and ambidextrous imported black pakkawood handle imported from Spain (laminated for extra strength, sanitation and water/stain resistance) the Gladiator Series slicer is carefully designed for maximum comfort and maneuverability.
The knife is as pleasing to hold as it is to look at, featuring a perfectly engineered balance with a satisfying heft and presence. Perfectly weighted to handle both thicker, heavy duty cuts and more delicate detail work. The hand polished bolster adds counter weight and offers finger protection, while the triple rivets (with signature Dalstrong center rivet) in the handle ensures the highest level of strength and robustness. Included is a water and stain resistant, BPA free protective Dalstrong PerfectFit sheath.
