I.O.Shen Sahm Khom Knife 16cm
TAG - 404
The I.O.Shen 16cm Sahm Khom Knife can tackle both tough root vegetables and delicate herbs with the added bonus of being lighter and particularly useful at slicing and dicing meat, fruit and vegetables. Pronounced “Sam Com”, means triple sharp. The name of this knife pays homage to the Triplex Steel Technology in the blade. Other common names for this style of knife are East-West or Santoku.
This blade is a Japanese version of a chef’s knife, however it is not rocked like a chef’s knife. It features more steel at the tip of the blade, a flatter belly and no bolster. The remarkably sharp point strips through vegetables with ease.
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.
