Dalstrong Knife Construction

All the knives featured in the shogun series are 66+ layers of Damascus Stainless Steel. This hard, compact amount of steel provides every blade to be hard, durable, and sharp.

Heat Treating them in a vacuum also gives an added layer of protection against bacteria and keeps them easy to clean.

Not dishwasher friendly. It’s not advisable to wash any chef’s knives in the dishwasher anyway so treat them nicely and hand wash.

Keeping The Blade Sharp

As with everything, if you want it to last you do need to look after it. Each knife comes with a blade guard to keep the cutting edge safe while it’s in a drawer. Not just from your wary fingers as you look for some chop sticks. but to save the edge from other things that might chip into it.

Adding a knife sharpener to your kitchen accessories is also a brilliant idea if you want to keep your new little betsie in tip top condition!
