Shogun Series 8" Tanto Chef Knife
Inspired by the design of the Tanto knife that was once used by Samurai’s to pierce through the tough armours of enemies, the Shogun Series 8” Tanto Chef Knife is your ultimate tool for overcoming any unexpected or expected food obstacles in the kitchen, no matter how hard or tough. Equipped with an extremely strong high point and a slight belly for versatility, the Shogun Series 8” Tanto Chef Knife is your everyday workhorse built to puncture, cut, slash, stab, slice, thrust, chop, and scrape various foods with ease. A higher concentration of The Shogun Series’ highly coveted ultra-premium Japanese high carbon AUS-10V steel is found near the tip of the blade, where the aesthetically pleasing blade point is perfectly aligned with its spine, to give the knife exceptional durability and optimal absorption power from the impact of repeated piercing through tougher foods that would likely damage or break other knives. Squash, pumpkin, melons, thick pork belly, shanks, ribs and virtually any and all tough foods will be at your mercy with the extra strong, Shogun Series 8” Tanto Chef Knife.
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 damascus 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 per side.
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.
