Chef's Knife
The chef’s knife is the go-to knife in your kitchen arsenal. Our high carbon stainless steel chef knives are more versatile than your bread knives, boning knives, or paring knives. The chef knife’s razor sharp blade and steel or wooden handle, is ready for all your chopping, slicing, and dicing needs. The best chef knives have carbon steel blades, which maintain their sharp edge, and rate over 56 on the Rockwell scale, which allows for excellent edge retention. Normally, these chef knives run between 6 and 14 inches, with an 8-inch chef's knife being the most common. Dalstrong’s quality chef knives give you a choice between Western and Japanese knives, serrated knives and classic chef knives. Forget trying to prepare meals with traditional cutlery — your kitchen deserves well-forged knives, crafted from high quality steel. Step up to your cutting board with a Dalstrong stainless steel chef’s knife.

Cookware
Cookware is essential to anyone who needs to cook. But when you start buying your stockpot, saucepan, and lid, skillet, sauté pan all separately, the cost can add up. Consider a cookware set to save you money. When shopping for a cookware collection, you have many options. A stainless steel cookware set is low-maintenance, versatile, and durable. Copper cookware offers excellent heat distribution. Cast iron pots are sturdy — great for fry pans and dutch ovens. Aluminum cookware works for griddles and larger pots. Bakeware is great in clay or stone. A nonstick cookware set is popular because it makes cleaning a breeze. Here you have a choice between PTFE cookware or ceramic cookware. Once you choose a material, you will need to consider the cookware brand. A quality brand is a good investment. Dalstrong offers elite cookware that performs well, is long-lasting, and will look fantastic on your stovetop.
Dalstrong
Knife Sets
Now that you’re ready to take your cooking game to the next level, you should consider a kitchen knife set. When it comes to knife sets, you have options. A wooden block set has anywhere between 5 to 18 pieces. These 5 to 18 piece knife sets might feature any number of specialty knives and culinary tools. Some include: a vegetable knife, serrated utility knife, santoku knife, and a honing sharpening steel. More specialized knife sets include a charcuterie and cheese knife set, steak knife sets, a carving knife and fork set, and a paring knife set. With Dalstrong, you can rely on receiving high quality forged knives, with high carbon stainless steel blades, a Rockwell hardness over 56, and comfortable ergonomic knife handles. Discover your inner chef whenever you reach for a knife carrying the stamped blade Dalstrong logo in your elegant new knife set.
Dalstrong
Butcher Knife
Make your meat prep as effortless as possible with a good butcher knife, forged of stainless steel for an extra-durable, razor-sharp blade with optimal edge retention. Choose from our selection of stainless steel butcher knives: whether a bullnose or cimeter butcher knife, all butcher knives are crafted from high carbon steel for total strength and stiff blade control while cutting through meat.
With every high carbon steel blade rated at a high Rockwell Hardness, you can easily section large cuts of raw meat with a good breaking knife. And with each stamped blade carrying our Dalstrong logo, you’ll know you’re handling quality stainless steel knives every time you reach for one. Complete your butcher knife purchase by buying a butcher knife set, or pairing it with a chef knife, cleaver, or boning knife. Whatever meat is on the menu that night, you can handle it with Dalstrong.
Dalstrong
Paring Knife
As you grow your kitchen knife collection, paring knives become essential. The classic paring knife becomes your all rounder, a go to when cooking or performing any kitchen task. From hulling strawberries or dicing shallots, to coring tomatoes - a ceramic blade or stainless steel paring knife will do the trick. Whether it's a serrated paring knife or straight edge, it needs to have a razor sharp blade that keeps its edge retention. Some styles include : the spear point, a little knife that will cut and slice on a small surface; the bird’s beak paring knife, whose curved blade makes it fantastic at peeling fruits; the serrated edge, excellent for slicing larger fruits and vegetables; and the sheep’s foot paring knife, perfect for working on a cutting board. Dalstrong creates quality knives made of high carbon stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 56+ or higher.
Dalstrong
Knife Roll
A knife roll is indispensable to a professional chef, or anyone looking for knife storage to keep their blades sharp as they travel from kitchen to kitchen. Key features of a great knife roll include an adjustable shoulder strap and multiple pockets to carry utensils and other cooking tools of various sizes. Some items chefs might carry in their knife bags include a chef knife, tasting spoons, scissors, knife sharpener, and even a meat cleaver. Depending on your needs, you might consider a zippered compartment or zipper pouch to securely store items in your knife roll. Also, think about your prefered material. Popular options include full-grain black or brown leather with a durable waxed canvas. Whether it’s a leather knife roll or a canvas knife bag, a tight roll or a tool roll, large buckles or subtle zippers, Dalstrong makes a knife roll that will suit your needs.
Dalstrong
Bread Knife
Serrated knives (also known as bread knives) are a key piece to add to your kitchen knife collection. Whether slicing ripe tomatoes, soft fruit, or fresh bread loaves and crust, you will want a sharp edge bread slicer that will take care of business. Choose from our selection of stainless steel, razor-sharp blades, with serrated blade lengths ranging from 8 to 10.25 inches. When looking for a quality bread knife, look for a sharp, scalloped edge, that is comfortable to hold with durable grip, such as a pakkawood handle. Our bread knives come with ergonomic handles, allowing for greater comfort and control in your kitchen. Consider a stainless steel serrated bread knife to easily slice through your sourdough bread, baked goods, and other types of soft bread. When your task calls for a good bread knife, you can’t do better than a Dalstrong.
Dalstrong
Fillet Knives
The fillet knife is an excellent option for chefs and fish lovers to add to their collection of kitchen knives. A fish fillet knife has a thin, razor sharp, stainless steel blade. These fillet knives feature flexible blades, hand sharpened to 14-18 degree angles and have ergonomic handles with a nonslip grip. They are perfect for filleting big and small fish alike. Blade lengths run between 6 and 7 inches on these stunning, hard carbon stainless steel tools. While the flex fillet knife’s sharp, thin, curved blade is ideal for working with fish, bgenerally used for meat, pork and game. However, the flexible blade of a filleting knife can easily be used for non-fish proteins. The accompanying sheath protects your fillet knife when you are out of the kitchen and working with freshly caught fish. When fish is on the menu, don’t be caught without your sharp edged, Dalstrong fillet knife.
Dalstrong
Cleaver Knives
The meat cleaver, or Chinese cleaver, is an essential tool to add to any chef’s kitchen arsenal. Our high carbon stainless steel cleavers offer great durability for chefs looking for a knife that can withstand the rigors of a busy kitchen. For slicing or chopping meat, chicken, fish, fruit, and vegetables, these heavy-duty cleavers are up to the task. The ideal blade length for a stainless steel Chinese cleaver is 7 to 9 inches. Although, we also offer a 4.5” mini-cleaver for small tasks like dicing garlic, and a 12” blade for serious tasks that require a butcher knife. Our hand-crafted meat cleavers are equipped with ergonomic, commonly wooden handles. The stainless steel sharp edge makes working with any ingredients, from vegetables to bone, on a cutting board, a cinch. When you require comfort, durability and power from your cutlery, you’ll want to turn to your Dalstrong cleavers.
Dalstrong
Aprons
The word “apron” derives from the French word napperon, which refers to a small decorative cloth. Although, now we mainly think of chef aprons. Still, there are many apron styles from which to choose. The pinafore apron is loose-fitting-- a pinafore linen apron offers cool comfort. The adjustable bib aprons and waist aprons are two types of kitchen aprons to keep grease and stains off your clothes. Smock aprons, bistro aprons, cobbler aprons, tuxedo aprons, disposable aprons are all viable options-- and a personalized apron for men women and even children are also becoming common. Aprons often use cotton fabric; however, leather aprons are popular for tasks like grilling and butchering meat or for those who just like all black aprons. The traditional apron color for restaurant aprons is white; although blue aprons were common in the past. Nowadays, your apron can be any color or have stripes. Any chef or home cook will love receiving a Dalstrong apron as a gift.
Dalstrong
Steak Knives
Steak knives are a staple of cutlery at home and in a restaurant. A quality steak is a high carbon stainless steel knife, with a Rockwell hardness over 56 and a razor sharp edge. Its ergonomic knife handle will be made of a strong material like wood, and give your hand a comfortable grip while slicing or chopping. Consider a smooth edge blade for clean cuts, a hollowed edge with measured indentations for fine slicing, or the classic style with a serrated edge. While a serrated blade is the most common for steak knives, and retains its edge for longer — offering greater durability, one might argue that a straight blade is easier to sharpen. The choice between the two is a matter of taste. While a chef’s knife or Japanese knife is for preparing your prime rib, grab a Dalstrong steak knife to truly enjoy your piece of meat.
Dalstrong
Nakiri Knives
One of the many Japanese knife styles popular today, the nakiri knife is a worthy addition to any chef’s kitchen tools collection. Made for cutting greens, this Japanese knife’s slender, straight blade edge is perfect for slicing through a vegetable. Forged of high carbon stainless steel, the blade length is similar to that of a santoku, but with a totally straight edge for chopping vegetables. From slicing cucumber to dicing tomatoes, the rectangular blade is ideal for preparing your veggies. The classic nakiri knife’s harder steel lends the blade excellent edge retention — meaning less time between sharpening and more time spent cutting delicate vegetables. Make sure to choose a nakiri knife with an ergonomic handle for extra comfort while cutting and mincing. Check out Dalstrong’s superb selection: no matter what vegetable you need to cut, this Japanese style knife with high rockwell hardness will do the job.
Dalstrong
Boning Knives
Although not as common among kitchen knives as the chef’s knife or paring knife, the classic boning knife makes precise cuts of chicken and beef much simpler. Though similar to filleting knives, the boning knife does more of the heavy-duty work, like cutting around bone and tougher meat, while the fillet knife is there to finish the job. Our boning knives have narrow blades forged of high carbon stainless steel, with pointed tips and incredible edge retention. These beautiful knives have ergonomic handles, which offer you a comfortable grip. Depending on your kitchen needs, consider a stiff boning knife with a heavier blade and greater durability or a flexible blade, which offers more control. You may also prefer the precision of a curved blade. Our corrosion resistant, stainless steel blades pass the rockwell hardness test, coming in over 56+ HRC. It’s time to add a Dalstrong boning knife to your arsenal.
Dalstrong
Carving Knives
If you enjoy prime rib, ham, or roast beef, a carving knife is an essential slicer for making uniform cuts of meat. A carving knife has less surface area than the chef’s knife, and makes cutting thin slices of large roasts simple while also doubling as a bread knife. The best carving knives feature stainless steel blades, with superior edge retention, and a rockwell hardness over 56. Ergonomic handles, often made of wood, add comfort and ease. Choose from the classic beauty of a german steel, or the durability of a high carbon, Japanese steel blade. Also, some chefs prefer a granton edge to reduce sliding friction. While an electric carving knife may be tempting, it is actually inferior to a quality stainless steel slicing knife. Choose from one of our stunning, razor sharp blades, stamped with the Dalstrong iconic lion insignia, and pair it with a quality carving fork.
Dalstrong
Serrated Knives
Serrated knives, with their scalloped edge, are brilliant at cutting crusty loaves or cake without splintering them, or slicing soft fruits without destroying them. Their sharp teeth will grip into crusty bread in a way that a plain edge knife, like a steak knife or chef’s knife could not. The serrated blades of a quality serrated knife also require less sharpening than a straight edged knife. However, sometimes the cutting board underneath may dull your serrated edge. In these cases, consider a manual knife sharpener like a honing steel or ceramic honing rod for sharpening the saw-like teeth of your serrated knives. Our serrated bread knives feature pointed serrations and an ergonomic handle. Consider serrated blades on your boning knife and paring knife, as well. The serrated utility knife is also a handy tool to add to your knife block. Just remember, when choosing a serrated knife blade, choose Dalstrong.
Dalstrong
Sushi Knives
While you could use a chef’s knife, kitchen knife, or paring knife to make sushi, a high carbon steel sushi knife is going to make your slicing more simple and your presentation more beautiful. A good sushi knife will infrequently require sharpening, and due to its durability, save you money in the end. Look for sushi knives with great edge retention, a rockwell hardness score over 56, and a comfortable ergonomic handle — often a wooden handle. For thin slices, consider a thin blade, with a razor sharp edge, to handle your cutting. With sushi knives you have choices. A deba knife is a traditional single bevel Japanese knife. Kiritsuke and santoku are versatile sashimi knives. A yanagiba sushi knife has a narrow blade and acute edge angle. Next time you prepare sushi rolls on your cutting board, consider a stainless steel, Dalstrong sushi knife.
Dalstrong
Brisket Knives
You’ve prepared a lovely smoked brisket, and now you need the best knife for slicing brisket. You could choose an electric knife, but you want to cut the perfect slice. Therefore, you will want to use a quality stainless steel carving knife. A manual knife, with a sharp edge and razor sharp blade, possibly even a granton edge. Now, which brisket knife is the right knife for you? A classic brisket knife might have a straight blade for slicing cleanly. Some chefs prefer a serrated blade, which has teeth that will grab into your meat. The scalloped blade incorporates elements of the previous two blades. The right brisket knife is a matter of taste; however, just as you have your boning knife and filet knife for specialized purposes, if you want beautiful brisket slices, you will want to cut it with a high carbon stainless steel Dalstrong slicing & carving knife, with a comfortable ergonomic handle.
Dalstrong
Utility Knives
The utility knife is your jack of all trades knife — your kitchen’s version of a box cutter. Not to be confused with a folding utility knife or the retractable blade that often uses the same name, kitchen utility knives have scalloped edges and a medium-short blade. A sharp utility knife is perfect for slicing fruits and vegetables, and they're an ideal tool for food prep. Of course, the utility knife’s stainless steel blade can manage all your slicing and cutting needs, as well. Unlike the paring knife, the utility knife is a larger and more versatile cutter. Make sure to give your hand a break with a comfortable, ergonomic handle and rubber grip. Remember, the utility knife’s standard steel blade must be razor sharp, not a replaceable blade. Get yourself a sweet Dalstrong utility knife, and keep your cutting edge razor sharp with smart blade storage.
Dalstrong
Magnetic Knife Holders
When you invest in quality stainless steel knives, you want a place to store them that keeps the knife blades sharp. Magnetic knife holders offer an aesthetically pleasing, hygienic way to manage your counter space and open up room in your knife drawer. With magnetic knife racks you get what you pay for — unlike a cheap magnetic knife strip or knife bar. You want your magnetic knife holder to have a strong magnet, but one that doesn’t require too much force to remove the knife. You will also want to check how to properly attach your knives and cutlery to the magnetic strip, before using it. A powerful magnetic bar will also hold kitchen utensils, like kitchen shears and scissors, as well. When evaluating knife racks or utensil holders you have options on material. Decorate your counter or kitchen wall with a powerful Dalstrong magnetic knife rack.
Dalstrong
Cutting Boards
When preparing meals, you need a quality cutting board. Most chopping boards are made out of plastic or wood, but there are other options like glass cutting boards. A plastic cutting board is cheaper and dishwasher friendly, whereas a wooden board is aesthetically more pleasing and longer lasting if properly cared for. Be sure to wash the cutting surface of your wooden board with hot water and soap after each use. Some choose to use vinegar and baking soda or salt and lemon juice instead. One tip is to use neutral mineral oil once a month on the board. Among wooden boards, you may choose from maple wood, walnut, teak, or a bamboo cutting board. Each option can double as a cheese board or serving board. You’ll feel proud to have your Dalstrong wooden cutting board on the kitchen counter next time you need to cut meat or chop vegetables.
Dalstrong
Honing Rods
The honing steel, or honing rod, is used for straightening the knife’s edge. It assists the knife’s edge in keeping its original position, without losing much metal in the process. Honing steels are often mistaken with sharpening steels, used to sharpen knives. However, while the honing rod does not sharpen a knife’s blade, it’s crucial for maintaining the blade’s edge between sharpenings. When considering a honing tool, look for a steel hone, ceramic steel, or diamond sharpening steel. Just like a cutting board, a good honing steel made of quality materials like these is guaranteed to last for decades. Make sure your honing rod comes with a comfortable, ergonomic handle to make your honing easy to manage. If you're serious about your knife steel and are through with trying to use a dull knife, get yourself a Dalstrong honing steel and avoid ever having a blunt knife in your kitchen.
Dalstrong
Whetstones
Once you have a knife, you’ll need a sharpening tool. One excellent option for sharpening and polishing your knives is a whetstone. These sharpening tools turn dull edges into razor sharp edges on any blade: from a chef’s knife, to a Japanese knife — even a hunting knife. The best whetstones combine natural whetstone with manufactured material. When using a whetstone knife sharpener, sharpen your knives with a coarse grit whetstone of #1000 grit or less, and polish them with a fine grit stone of over #4000. You’ll want a wet stone, when sharpening and polishing your knives, as the water on the whetstone surface will create a slurry mix of particles and sharp pebbles that will sharpen steel. An oil stone (kerosene is popular) sharpens chisels and planes. Look at the Dalstrong sharpening guide for more tips, after you get yourself a whetstone with the Dalstrong lion insignia.
Dalstrong
Santoku Knives
The santoku knife is a versatile knife worth adding to your collection of kitchen tools. This Japanese knife’s thin blade and razor sharp straight edge will leave paper thin slices of meat or vegetables on your cutting board. Sometimes the santoku knife is lumped in with the western style chef’s knife, but they excel in different ways. The chef’s knife’s blade is normally stainless steel with a blade length between 8-12”, while the santoku’s blade is 5-7″ of high carbon Japanese steel. The santoku’s harder steel lends the blade excellent edge retention — meaning less time between sharpening. Another difference is that the santoku blade merges seamlessly with its ergonomic handle, while the chef’s knife has a bolster. In general, santoku knives are better for chopping, and chef’s knives are better used with a rocking motion. Once you decide on a santoku knife, check out Dalstrong’s superb selection.
Dalstrong
Skillets
When the butter is sizzling and you are about to fry eggs, cheese, and bacon for breakfast you will want to use a non-stick skillet or frying pan. Less messy than a cast-iron skillet, a non-stick skillet still has slanted sides and a large cooking surface, which make it an excellent pan for stir-frying your veggies. Get your onions, mushrooms, artichokes, pepper, and seasoning on the skillet and have stir-fry ready in minutes. With non-stick, you can make your meal even healthier, as you won’t need to add oil. A high-quality stainless steel skillet can handle medium and high heat when you want to sear a steak or chicken breast. Use a wooden spoon, rather than metal utensils, to avoid chipping the skillet. Consider a Dalstrong fry pan or skillet, coated in ceramic or Teflon for even heat conduction — it will quickly become one of your favorite kitchen allies.
Dalstrong
Sauté Pans
Stainless steel sauté pans are versatile pans, excellent for healthy cooking. Unlike a nonstick skillet, the sauté pans' straight sides give it a larger cooking surface for slow cooking items over low heat. A nonstick sauté fry pan comes in different sizes. A shallow pan functions well for your pan frying and sautéing needs. Make your pasta in a deep sauté pan. It is key that your sauté pan comes with a lid — some prefer a glass lid, so that you can make your sauce, as well. Non-stick sauté pans can use two different nonstick coatings: teflon and ceramic. Though easier to clean than a cast iron pan, be careful when washing your nonstick sauté pan, as ceramic ones are still not always dishwasher safe. Whether you need a saucepan or a wok, Dalstrong offers a sauté pan, with a stainless steel handle, controlling heat while empowering your cooking.
Dalstrong
Stock Pots
A stock pot is another essential piece to your kitchen cookware set. Stainless steel stock pots, or dutch ovens, feature aluminum cores for optimal high heat retention and an even heat distribution. A large stock pot is excellent for boiling water for pasta, cooking a broth, boiling seafood, or making a hearty stew. In a pinch, these soup pots can even serve to prepare casserole. Choose your stock pot in a 5 quart or 8 quart pot, depending on whether you are preparing a medium or large batch. Our stock pots are available with stainless steel handles and stainless steel or tempered glass lids. They are dishwasher and oven safe. While cast iron can be difficult to maintain, our nonstick stainless steel pots make for easy cleaning. So, the next time you’re craving a delicious soup, go in the kitchen and place your Dalstrong stock pot on the stove.
Dalstrong
Knife Bags
Once you have invested in a knife set and cutlery tools, you will want to get yourself a chef’s knife bag. A knife roll bag is not merely an accessory, it is a knife case to keep your precious knives safe and sharp when you need to transport them or store them. When shopping for a chef knife roll bag, consider a waxed canvas, top-grain, or full-grain leather knife bag. High-quality leather looks great, is durable, and easy to clean. If you don’t always want to carry your slot knife bag by its handle, get it with a shoulder strap. While a velcro strap might fit some personal styles, you might want a thick, leather strap when carrying your sharp knives and kitchen utensils. Whether your style is a compartment with a zipper, a large pocket, or a sleek roll bag, Dalstrong has the knife bag that meets your needs.
Dalstrong
Japanese Knives
The Japanese are master blade crafters and knife makers. The samurai sword, Japanese sword, and Japanese knife are highly sought after by collectors and chefs alike. In the kitchen, every chef worth their salt will have japanese blades in their collection. A high carbon steel Japanese blade will be razor sharp, and often requires less sharpening than european knives. There are many options to consider when looking for a fine Japanese knife. One is the usuba knife, which is a single bevel vegetable slicing knife. Another, the gyuto knife: a double bevel utility knife, similar to a western style chef’s knife. Also, the yanagiba knife, which has a thinner blade and is used to cut sashimi and sushi. Whether you are a sushi chef or an aspiring cook, looking for a thinner or thicker blade, Dalstrong’s stainless steel Japanese kitchen knives and cutlery are essential tools for your collection.
