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.
