The Ronin Series 7” Santoku is a lightweight and versatile powerhouse. The santoku knife is named for its ‘three virtues’. Some say the three virtues are its ability to cut through meat, fish, and vegetables. Others believe it is the ability to chop, slice, and dice. Both are true. This knife is beloved by chefs for its functionality and ease of use.
The Ronin Series blade is precision forged from a single piece of ultra-premium Japanese high-carbon AUS-10V steel for stain-resistance and durability. Precise cryogenic tempering with liquid nitrogen increases the steel's crystalline structure,enhancing strength, flexibility and hardness.
The Ronin Series exquisite ‘Liquid Kusari’ finish reduces drag and minimizes stuck on food. 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. Scalpel-like sharpness at staggering 8 to 12 degrees. Face any culinary challenge with enhanced blade durability. Beautifully engraved into the blade near the bolster is the Dalstrong lionhead insignia for further refinement.
The Ronin Series handle is meticulously constructed of black and red G-10, 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, black-stained Acacia wood saya (sheath) with embossed Dalstrong logo and pin is included with the set to ensure your blade is carefully protected.
