A Japanese twist on the beloved boning knife. This is a specialised tool which outperforms it’s European cousins.

A stiletto point and a thick blade makes this the only knife choice if you are intent on de-boning your own joints. It has a narrow blade with tapered tip which makes it much easier to work around bones.

The added bonus of this knife is it is fantastic at filleting! If you prefer to have more control over your cuts and like a more rigid blade – look no further!

Boning knives are a special type of kitchen knife that typically have several design features that help with boning meat, fish, and poultry. Boning knives have a narrow blade and the typical size of a boning knife is 12 cm to 17 cm in length on the blade.

The primary use of this knife is to remove bones from cuts of meat. This knife is often used as a dagger with the blade facing away. The curve of the edge is designed to cut up to and around bones. This is designed for trimming around bones, NOT cutting through them.

The unique handle design distinguishes I.O.Shen Mastergrade 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.

The handles are produced from a synthetic material, called ‘ebonite’, which is both durable and heat resistant (although we do not recommend dishwasher cleaning).

The handles of the chef knives are bonded to the blade steel using stainless steel rivets. Unlike aluminium rivets, these are corrosion resistant and have the same effect of expansion as the blade steel. The handles will remain secure for life.
