Why I.O.Shen Knives?
Every knife in the I.O.Shen Mastergrade range uses the very latest technology to construct a blade that is not only amazingly sharp but will retain an edge for a phenomenal amount of time. The razor sharp edge ensures cleaner sharper cuts and the Triplex Technology extends the edge life between sharpening. This technology combines a core of ultra hard steel with softer shock absorbing steel to produce a stronger, longer lasting knife-edge.
The unique handle design features a knife that quickly sets you apart from the rest. The Japanese knives have a distinguished tempering process and a Rockwell Hardness of 62 layered between softer steels. The VG10 core allows for a sharp edge that makes this knife an excellent choice for both industry and home use. If you are looking to upgrade from German steel to Japanese steel, then the I.O. is a great choice. I.O.Shen handles are heavier and have the weight of a traditional German knife with the added benefit of Japanese steel which has been honed to a 15 degree angle, which allows for wonderful slicing and portion control. The special blade and handle distinguish this knife from any other.
*We offer the I.O.Shen Knives with lifetime manufacturer warranty against workmanship defects.
This is one of the most instantly recognisable blades on the market. Other common names for this style of knife is East-West or Santoku.
A Santoku knife is the Japanese version of a chef knife. The knife has more steel at the tip of the blade and a flatter belly and no bolster. The knife is not rocked like a chef knife. Most people use more of a chopping motion instead of a rocking motion when cutting various types of food.
The I.O.Shen Santoku can also be used to slice meat, and has a narrow spine for making thin cuts. The wide blade can be used to scoop diced vegetables or other ingredients into a pot or bowl and is also good for crushing garlic. A Santoku can be used on most ingredients such as fruit, vegetables, and even meat.
Like any good knife, a santoku should not be dish washed or kept in a drawer. Proper care will allow for years of enjoyment.
