The Shogun Guardian Knife is crafted to take this function one step further — carefully cradling the hands and wrists of its owner with an innovative, ergonomic design that enhances your comfort and control. By positioning the hand directly over meats and vegetables, you can effortlessly rule your kitchen, working
the knife in a rocking motion to dice, slice, and chop with ease.
Precision forged from
a single piece of ultra premium Japanese high-carbon AUS-10V steel, the blade consists of 67-alternating layers of SUS410 damascus cladding for added stain-resistance and durability. The advanced cryogenic tempering with liquid nitrogen increases the steel's crystalline structure, enhancing strength, flexibility and hardness. The resulting super-steel core possesses extra high carbon levels, allowing for scalpel-like sharpness with exceptionally long-lasting edge retention. Chop and slice for longer with the same level of performance between sharpenings.
The thorough hand-polishing gorgeously reveals the magnificent visual pattern, Dalstrong’s ‘Tsunami Rose.’ Hand-finished with the Honbazuke 3-step method, the beautiful mirror polished edge is both stunning and precise, sharpened to a staggeringly acute 8-10 degrees per side. The exquisite hammered tsuchime finish is not only a testament to artful craftsmanship — it also reduces drag for increased agility. For added refinement, the Dalstrong lionhead logo is beautifully engraved into the blade near the bolster.
The Shogun Series handle is meticulously constructed of G-10 Garolite, a military-grade, non-porous, fiberglass-like material that possesses incredible strength. 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, stabilized further with an engraved end-cap. As a finishing touch, 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.
