Ruthlessly sharp, the Shadow Black Series edge is painstakingly honed by expert craftsmen to 16-18°– ensuring clean, precise cuts and excellent edge-retention.
Carefully tapered, the blade’s calculated geometry ensures the perfect balance between resilience and performance, creating minimal drag. An intense heat-treatment followed by a deep-freeze nitrogen cooling process enhances hardness and flexibility. Full-tang for maximum durability, the knife is further upgraded with a menacing deep-black Titanium Nitride coating, improving robustness, corrosion resistance keeping your knife cleaner, longer. Each blade is engineered and weighted for perfect balance to minimize hand fatigue and optimize function.
The handle's tapered bolster ensures a comfortable pinch grip, while the angular G10 resin material is near impervious to kitchen damage and affords lifelong durability. The unique design of the Shadow Black Series' handle affords a rock solid grip, allowing your hand and palm to wrap around effortlessly while your middle finger sits comfortably within a groove near the choil. The hand-polished spine is smooth and comfortable to the touch while the slight texture of the G10 provides anti-slip capability.
