The Dalstrong Shogun Series X 10.25” chef’s knife is a powerhouse slicer and dicer. This culinary titan is the flag-bearer of the Dalstrong Shogun Series line, and the most indispensable of all kitchen blades. With 10.25 inches of VG10 cutting prowess and ample knuckle clearance, this knife is up for any sized challenge and never fails to deliver. Featuring a larger version of the Shogun Series handle (versus others in the series), this knife is made for serious chefs who need serious firepower.
The Shogun Series X 55mm-wide blade is precision-forged from a single piece of 66-layered Damascus high-carbon stainless steel cladding, with an ultra-premium Japanese steel VG-10 cutting core. Precise cryogenic tempering with liquid nitrogen increases the steel's crystalline structure, enhancing strength, flexibility and hardness.
The exquisite hammered tsuchime finish is not only beautiful craftsmanship, it also reduces drag and minimizes stuck-on food. Hand-polishing reveals Dalstrong’s magnificent ‘Tsunami Rose’ visual pattern. The super-steel core possesses extra-high carbon levels, providing scalpel-like sharpness with exceptionally long-lasting edge retention. Each knife is hand-finished in the Honbazuke three-step method, creating a beautiful mirror-polished edge at an acute 10 degrees per side. Engraved into the blade near the bolster is Dalstrong’s beautiful lionhead logo.
The Shogun Series X handle is constructed of G-10 Garolite, an incredibly strong military-grade inert and non-porous material. Similar to fiberglass, it is highly impervious to both heat and moisture with lifelong durability. The carefully engineered ergonomic handle (larger than others in the series) is designed for superior hand control and comfort, and is stabilized with an engraved end-cap. 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.
