In 2020, among the all-new release of a chef knife, Dalstrong shadow black series is one of the top favorite chef knife who already used it. When I decided to write Dalstrong Shadow Black Series Chef Knife review, the first thing come into my mind is about design. The futuristic smart design caught my eyes.

I gonna drive deep and bring you the insights of Dalstrong Shadow BLACK Series Chef Knife Review and bring you the real zest.
When I touch the knife first thing comes, what is the black color this knife or why it is black? Because this knife is the high-carbon 7CR17MOV-X super-steel made 13.6-inch total length Titanium Nitride non-reflective coating full tang blade. This Coat is kind of non-sticky which makes this knife improved robustness, corrosion resistance which means super handy use.
If we compare the shape of the blade we find as same as the Shagun series Chef knife. The blade is 2.5mm thin which completely fare.
Dalstrong is famous for its sharpness. Because usually all the dalstrong series knife got an 8-12 degree sharp angle of the blade but Shadow black series got an average 15-degree sharp angle. The matter that will amaze, when you gonna use practically, you will find shadow black series chef knife is more sharper than Other Dalstrong knives.

Dalstrong shadow black Series most identical part is its steel. Normally Dalstrong used VG 10 or AUS 10V Steel on their knives. But in this knife, they used vacuum treated high-carbon 7CR17MOV-X super-steel. High Carbon Steel always gets the advantage of super sharpness. That is why Top Japanese knives set are so sharp.
High carbon steel is often gets rusted but Titanium Nitride non-reflective coating on the surface covered this problem.
