Product Description

David Dallaire, CEO Dalstrong, Established 2014

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.

Dalstrong professional chef knife manufacturing process

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 & 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.

A thirty-one-year-old organization striving to help further food and social justice, equity, and inclusion, they’ve served 350,000 students and distributed 62 million in scholarships to date.

...yet one thing is known, you may simply order this through Amazon and it may arrive promptly, squired from the chariot of their delivery persons in a manner of speed that would make APOLLO HIMSELF shake the skys mad with envy, or as you mortals say, make him "Jelly like a Doughtnut", BUT, nevertheless this Knife has Chosen you, yes, YOU! to stand and see if you are worthy to handle its power.
To test if you are worthy to use its planetary mass and atom cutting edge to prepare your tastiest meats to be cooked over open flames for thine guests.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the knife nut, chef and fantasy sword nerd alike
By Jon A on May 28, 2019
Let me just start this review by saying that I’m a lifelong knife nut turned chef. I collect high end folders and have an array of name brand kitchen knives. I professionally sharpen knives for friends and am known to put 15,000 grit polishes on my blades. I think they’re functional works of art.. and this Dalstrong Obliterator cleaver may be one of my favorite knives I’ve ever owned.

The 7cr17mov steel is found in many budget valued bushcraft knives. It’s a steel that can take a beating and doesn’t chip easily, but also won’t break the bank. I’m blown away that they could sell this hunk of steel at this price. The fit and finish on the blade is absolutely beautiful. I’m astonished that a 3lb, 9” long, 1/4” thick blade can be so balanced. That being said, if you lack shoulder strength.. beware.. this knife is heavy. It looks like something out of Final Fantasy or Dark Souls. Check my pics. I have medium-large hands and this thing is an absolute chunk.

First thing I did with this beast was chop up a few whole chickens for some Korean fried chicken. Just.. wow. Goes through bone like butter. I can’t wait to use this thing to break down elk or venison.

I was never given a product for review; I’m just a fan of impressive cutlery and I absolutely love this cleaver. The stand it comes with is rustic, yet refined and beautiful. And the sheath it comes with is high quality with padding on the inside to protect from scratches and absorb shock in travel. Now that I have this, I could never go back to an ordinary cleaver. I’d love to see them come out with a two handed splitting cleaver for butchers. Well done, Dalstrong 👍🏼

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp and heavy. Love it.
By DT on May 20, 2020
This thing is badasp. I cleaned the blade off when it arrived. I pulled it through a knife sharpener two or three passes on coarse and two passes on fine. Basically just to deburr the blade. Apparently the thing was already really sharp. I ran it over hot water and then slid my thumb and index finger pinching the blade to wipe off any residue metals. What appeared to be a film came off into my hand. what I did not realize that this was the skin from my thumb and my forefinger. No pain whatsoever, then I realized there was blood. This thing ships Sharp. It has a wide angle bevel instead of a narrow angle that you may see on a chef's knife. Excellent purchase would buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars This cleaver is MASSIVE!
By Greg Davenport on June 4, 2019
I have been looking for a cleaver of cleavers. This bad boy answered the call. She is BIG, HEAVY and SHARP. I just got it and haven't done a lot with it yet but I can tell you it cuts through corn on the cob and chicken bones like a light saber through well anything. not to mention it is menacing as hell looking. As soon as I took it out of the box, my cat saw it and stopped crapping on the carpet. lol. I cant wait to go to town on a pig or some zombies with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Good as it Seems!
Reviewed in Canada on July 24, 2020
I ordered this less than 12 hours ago, and it's already in my hands. It's amazing! They aren't lying about the thickness, quality, weight, or hand-feel. It's easily the best cleaver I've ever used, and it's heavy enough (almost 3lbs) to stand up to daily use. I don't normally really pay attention to packaging, but it's obvious that a lot of care went into the presentation. There's a little welcome card, with a branded cleaning cloth and a pin, which is a nice touch.
The ONLY thing I can't comment on is how well it'll take an edge when I have to sharpen it, but it's sharp enough out of the box to get started, and if they were honest about the kind of steel then it shouldn't have any problems. The pictures make it look like a flat blade, but there's a minute curvature, more pronounced at the tip, to it that's hard to see. It makes it just a little easier on your wrists if you're doing anything fine.

I love this knife, and you will too.
