******Update 3/23/17****I was giving this knife one star now I am giving them 5 because of great customer services. I contact Dalstrong the other day and asking for any solution on these rusty spots. Jessica, the rep from Dalstrong returned my email fairly quickly on the next day. We exchanged a few email and sent her the pictures and invoice from Amazon. To my surprised she sent me a brand new knife without any charge of it. Simply because they want to make it right. To a guy didn't expect that and only ask for solution on how to fix the spot; this was certainly GREAT customer service! Now they got me! I am thinking about purchasing another Dalstrong Chef knife - Shogun series. Because I know if anything happened to this knife they will back it as they promised!--------------------------------------------------------I want to like/love this knife but it rust after a few months of daily usage.This knife is on a heavy side and very thick. Over the time, I got used to the size and thickness of knife. Just recently I found out the knife starting having rust. I used this knife everyday for cooking at home only and not a professional cook. Very disappoint this knife rust!Please see the pictures I included, not good for a knife called itself as high grade carbon steel.
This is an incredibly well-made knife, with great balance, excellent steel, at a REALLY GOOD price. If you're ready to take the next step up in your home cooking, or are starting to delve into the culinary world, you won't regret this purchase. Great food starts with the knife, and this one fits the bill exceptionally well. I wouldn't at all be surprised to see this in a chef's hand either. Very, very pleased. BE CAREFUL and read about proper knife skills or watch some instructional videos on YouTube, because this knife is razor sharp and you can do some serious damage to yourself if you rush into using a pro knife like this.I've also purchased the paring knife, and plan to complete the set over time as funds allow.
A chef’s knife is the work horse of the kitchen. It is meant to be an all-purpose, multitasking knife - a versatile tool particularly created for those who have to chop, mince and dice frequently and for someone who wants to get truly precise, thin slices. Since I have used Dalstrong knives for years and have never been disappointed, I knew that this knife would be able to stand up to any task I could put it to in my kitchen. I can seamlessly move between chopping hard vegetables such as carrots, to cutting through fruit rinds, mincing garlic and onions and slicing proteins both cooked and uncooked. I even use it this week to cut through a frozen ice cream cake to get even and neatly cut slices without mangling the cake.This knife is considered full tang, meaning that a single piece of steel runs the entire length of the knife and the handle is riveted to this. That gives this knife incredible balance and strength. The rivets are smooth and do not protrude from the handle, allowing for exceptional stability and a comfortable, safe grip. The handle itself is a black pakkawood handle imported from Spain that is laminated for extra strength, sanitation and water/stain resistance. The blade is polished to a satin finish minimizes stuck on food, for frictionless cuts.Care of the knife is also super easy. It comes with it's own sheath to help protect the edge integrity of the the knife when not in use. After using this knife, I choose to hand wash it with a light dish soap and then wipe dry with a soft kitchen towel to bring out it’s mirror-like shine. The blade should not need sharpening due to the high quality of the steel and workmanship, but you will also receive a colorful and actually interesting user booklet with the knife that contains sharpening instructions if needed. I also cut exclusively on a wood board, as this has the least chance over glass and plastic board for dulling the blade.In my opinion, this is the kind of knife that gets passed down from generation to generation. Once you experience the ease, balance and precision of prepping food with this knife, you will never go back to using an inferior and cheaply made knife again. I have no problem recommending this knife to both professionals as well as every day cooks.I'm not a knife expert by any stretch... Every knife I've owned before this is just a cheap kitchen knife I found at a random store for like -. Those knives weren't very sharp to begin with but quickly dulled to being pretty dangerous to even use. I was struggling to prep dinner and it just wasn't good.So I bought this knife and wow is it nice and sharp. Holding it is like Schroedinger's Blade. On the one hand it feels extremely dangerous to even hold because one false move and I'm slicing my hand open or my finger off... but on the other hand (the one not being sliced), it feels very solid and very balanced and it cuts things so effortlessly that it makes food prep WAY safer.Before I was having to really put pressure down to even cut an onion, now I'm gently sliding the blade right through everything like butter. So in terms of how effective this knife is... I'd say 100%.It feels great to hold. It has good weight to it. You can feel the quality just from holding it. Super easy to clean as well.My only concern with getting a fancy knife like this was maintenance... I have zero knowledge of keeping a knife sharp, or proper knife care, or anything... So I sort of "winged it" by getting a little simple knife sharpener off amazon that you just run the blade through a few times. I've used it a handful of times on the knife so far but honestly it didn't even need it. The blade is still sharp a couple months later of daily use.This is a no muss, no fuss, sharp as a razor knife that gets the job done. I'm super happy with it and glad I finally spent a bit more money on a quality kitchen knife. It makes chopping stuff fun.

The Dalstrong Origin Story
Dalstrong first began in the sweat and glory of professional kitchens, where CEO and founder Dave Dallaire worked alongside line cooks and sous chefs who tirelessly devoted every ounce of energy and passion to their craft. Watching these culinary warriors give everything they had while using stodgy, uninspired knives, he asked: “Where are the culinary tools to match their intrepid spirit?”
And so he started Dalstrong in 2014, recruiting an always-hungry global team who believe that today’s culinary artists deserve tools that push the limits of their imagination. We’re convinced we can change the world around us through our products, our creativity, and our community. Gathering inspiration that fuels our sense of adventure, from ancient warrior cultures to architecture to fighter jets, we scour the planet for the best materials and manufacturing partners to execute this vision — and will never stop raising the bar, smashing boundaries, and celebrating culinary mavericks in this quest.
What Drives Dalstrong
Our mission is to inspire and drive creativity across the globe, pushing culinary boundaries and equipping cooks with the modern tools they need to enhance their experience. We know that food forms the heart and soul of most cultural traditions — it’s the main event in nearly all celebrations while also being a deeply satisfying individual experience. It can inspire peace and connection, excitement and joy. It can be an expression of creativity, love, style, and community. It gives a reason for families to come together, old friends to reunite, adversaries to find common ground. It can provide comfort and nostalgia, while also transcending barriers of time and space. By putting innovative and high-quality knives, cookware, and accessories in the hands of our customers, we hope to inspire a new generation of culinary creators to discover our guiding truth for themselves: There Are No Limits.

Technology, Meet Tradition.
Our glowing reviews aren’t a coincidence — they’re the result of our commitment to quality, starting with the primary materials we use.
Every line of knives that we manufacture sources premium steel from Japan, America, Germany, Sweden amp; China.
These premium imported materials are painstakingly assembled by expert bladesmiths in a state-of-the-art facility within YangJiang, China — a city with a renowned knife crafting tradition dating back over 1400 years.
These highly trained craftsmen spend anywhere from 30-60 days on each knife, painstakingly hand-polishing and hand-finishing the blades and handles using the 3-step Honbazuke honing method.
This traditional Japanese process is married with high-tech processes such as Cryo-tempering which improves the steel’s crystalline structure (making them stronger). This merging of modern technology allows us to achieve exceptional quality while keeping the costs of our knives lower for our customers.
Where are Dalstrong Knives Made?
Every single one of our knives is painstakingly assembled by expert bladesmiths in a state-of-the-art facility within YangJiang, China — a city with a renowned knife crafting tradition dating back over 1400 years. Today, Yangjian holds the title of National Capital of Knives and Scissors, exporting to more than 100 countries and accounting for 60% of all knife product exports in China.
Before we partner with any global organization, we seriously consider their stance on worker’s rights and eco-sustainability. It’s important to us that our partners align with our values. Our main manufacturing partners are certified ISO humans rights compliant, with 4 weeks of paid vacation for their employees per year and fair wages.

A workforce development nonprofit, C-CAP provides culinary, job, and life skills to middle and high school kids across the United States.

Both projects support veterans or first responders and their families, offering various support programs for community-building, mental wellness, physical wellness, career counseling, and independence.
Dalstrong believes that everyone has a responsibility to give back. That’s why we look to partner with chefs, pitmasters, culinary schools, grillmasters — anyone who wants to make a positive impact in their communities and the culinary world at large.
One of those incredible chefs is no other than Dominque Crenn, the first female chef to receive three Michelin stars in the US. Last year, when many restaurants were closing across the country due to the pandemic, we partnered with her foundation to support the homeless community in San Francisco. Through a donation of more than 200 culinary tools — including knives, aprons, and accessories — we’ve helped her foundation provide 2,000 plates a week to those in need.
From 3-star Michelin Chefs to parents making dinner, line cooks to grillmasters, and everyone in between, Dalstrong Chefs are treated like family. We know that we would be nothing without our chefs, and try to show it at every opportunity — whether it’s spotlighting some of the amazing female chefs in our ranks or producing custom tools for Thai culinary communities.
