The Omega Series 5.5” Utility Knife is a master of versatility and precision cuts that excels at a variety of culinary work from slicing, trimming, and sectioning, to coring, and peeling a large assortment of smaller fruits and vegetables. This knife is an essential day-to-day tool that is designed to tackle a multitude of culinary challenges from trimming broccoli and green beans, to chopping herbs and spices with moderate rock chops stemming from the blade's slight belly. The “LiquidMetal” pattern on the blade reduces drag and increases efficiency, allowing you to glide through prep. Featuring ultra-premium American forged BD1N-VX hyper steel, the addition of Nitrogen increases hardness, flexibility, and toughness, while 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 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. A black PU leather sheath with button clip and distinctive red-stitching is also included to ensure the blade's stylish protection and your own safety. Featuring all the precision, premium materials and workmanship you would expect from Dalstrong, only dialled up.
