Gladiator Series 8.5" Kiritsuke Knife

$69.99


The 8.5” Gladiator Series double-bevel Kiritsuke is a push cut and slicing specialist.  Designed with a sword-like front end, this visually stunning blade is a high performance instrument of exceptional effectiveness.   The flat geometry of the blade’s edge facilitates push-cuts over rocking cuts, making it an ideal choice for those chefs who prep large numbers of vegetables.   The kiritsuke blends the Japanese yanigaba (fish slicer) with an usuba (vegetable knife) making is a versatile alternative to a chef’s knife.     This is one knife worth having in your knife roll.

 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 to 14-16  degrees per side, the Dalstrong Gladiator Series kiritsuke knife is a high performance kitchen workhorse, ensuring ultra-thin slicing and dicing with minimal effort, maintenance or clean up required.   

 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 kiritsuke knife is carefully designed for maximum control and effectiveness. 

This knife is as pleasing to hold as it is to look at, featuring a perfectly engineered balance with a satisfying heft and presence. 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.  

From the heat of professional restaurant kitchens, to catering, to family dinners and even  a simple meal for one, this Gladiator Series kiritsuke knife works tirelessly beside you, complimenting your style, always dependable and forever effective. It is your merciless gladiator in the unforgiving arena of professional and home kitchens.
