The I.O.Shen 17cm Oriental Slicing Knife is a versatile knife featuring a wide blade and narrow spine. The razor edge will cut through meat, root vegetables such as butternut pumpkin and turnips, delicately chop herbs, and crush garlic. The point to this uniquely shaped knife mimics the chef’s knife allowing you to perform intricate work, whilst the depth of the blade ensures your fingers are kept out of range. This knife is truly one of a kind!

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.
