The Shogun Series 10.5” Sujihiki is the ultimate multi-purpose slicer. The sujihiki (translated literally as 'muscle cutter 'or 'flesh slicer') is also known as a double-bevel or Western-style yanagiba knife. Originally designed for cutting and removing muscles from meat with long draw cuts, the Sujihiki has evolved from its roots in Asian-style preparations, to mastering Western applications as a culinary warrior against all boneless proteins, vegetables and even bread, giving you paper-thin slices. Featuring high-carbon Japanese AUS-10V super steel, the narrow height of the blade minimizes friction while the double patterned Rock-Hollow divots create air pockets between the knife and your food, enhancing non-stick properties. Slice through roast beef, turkey, raw meats, and even prepare sushi with ease as the razor-sharp blade edge sails through flesh without sawing, preserving the quality and freshness of your ingredients.
Painstakingly crafted over 60 days using the highest quality materials, the Shogun Series of knives are both razor-sharp kitchen powerhouses and artistic statement in premium design and workmanship.
The Shogun Series blade is precision forged from a single piece of ultra premium Japanese high-carbon AUS-10V steel with 67-alternating layers of SUS410 damasucs cladding for stain-resistance and durability. Precise cryogenic tempering with liquid nitrogen increases the steel's crystalline structure, enhancing strength, flexibility and hardness.
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.
Beautifully engraved into the blade near the bolster is the Dalstrong lionhead logo for further refinement.
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.
