The Shogun Series 12″ Offset Slicing Knife is a truly practical weapon for your kitchen arsenal.

Our version is precision-forged from a single piece of ultra-premium Japanese high-carbon AUS-10V steel. Experience enhanced strength, flexibility, and hardness due to the increased crystalline structure. The resulting super-steel core possesses extra high carbon levels, allowing for scalpel-like sharpness with exceptionally long-lasting edge retention. Hand-finished with the Honbazuke 3-step method, the beautiful mirror-polished edge is both stunning and precise, sharpened to a staggeringly acute 8-12 degrees per side. Complete with a military-grade G-10 Garolite handle, the non-porous, fiberglass-like material possesses incredible strength and 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, stabilized further with an engraved end cap.
