The I.O.Shen Maoui Deba has been designed by Chef Karim Maoui. “Designed to fit and balance perfectly in the hand. For me, it’s the perfect compromise of the weight of a German knife with the exquisite cutting edge of Japanese craftsmanship”.

This beautiful blade has been crafted to be multi-purpose – fit for a great variety of tasks. Featuring 17cm in length, the blade is curved to the edge leading to an arrow head point.

Key Feature – Tai Tang Handle:


All the Knives in the I.O.Shen Mastergrade range have used the very latest technology to construct a blade that is not only amazingly sharp but will retain their edge for a long period of time. They have been sharpened to a 15° angle, which allows for wonderful slicing and portion control.

The unique handle design distinguishes I.O.Shen Mastergrade Knives from any other knife. It is an essential factor in achieving balance and stability.

The Tai Tang is not simply an embellishment, it is an integral part of the handle. Injection moulding means that the handle will not fall apart over time (as associated with riveted handles).

The handles are produced from a material called ebonite which is both durable and heat resistant. It is not recommended to wash these knives in a dishwasher.

  • Always store out of the reach of children.
  • The cutting edge of I.O.Shen Mastergrade Knives is extremely hard and therefore liable to chip if they are used to chop bone or other hard objects.
  • Never store knives loose in a drawer.
  • Never leave sharp blades in washing up water.
  • Dishwasher use invalidates the I.O.Shen lifetime guarantee.
  • Hand wash, dry and immediately store your knives.

For many years, knife manufactures have been trying to use increasingly harder steel in order to achieve the ultimate cutting edge. The hardness of stainless steel is measured on a scale called Rockwell; 62° being the highest grade commercially available. However, the brittleness of such hard steel has always been a limiting factor.

 

I.O.Shen has overcome this problem by using a layer of super hard steel (Rockwell 62°) sandwiched between  two layers of softer stainless steel (Rockwell 10°) to produce the ultimate cutting edge. This is called Triplex Steel Technology.
