The Shogun Series Elite 8.5” double-bevel kiritsuke is a push-cut master, with it’s long straight edge and sword shaped tip, this blade is a lethal beauty. Considered a Japanese version of the multi-purpose chef’s knife, this blade fuses the design of both traditional Japanese yanagiba (fish slicers) and usubas (vegetables knives). In Japanese cuisine, the kiritsuke is typically reserved for master chef’s, given the skill required in using and maintaining single bevel knives. The Shogun Series version is however double-beveled, making it both easier to use and maintain. A stunning and useful addition to any knife bag. 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. 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.
