Every knife in the I.O.Shen Mastergrade range uses the very latest technology to construct a blade that is amazingly sharp and at a hardness of 62 HRC will retain a very sharp edge for a phenomenal amount of time. They have been hand sharpened to a 15° angle, which allows for effortless slicing and portion control. The unique handle design distinguishes I.O.Shen from any other knife. The full tang construction of these knives provides excellent strength, balance and precision control.

This is one of the most versatile knife in the I.O.Shen range.

The depth to the blade makes light work of tough root vegetables such as swede, butternut squash and turnips whilst the dramatic curve acts like a mezeluna and is perfect for ‘rock’ chopping delicate herbs.

The point mimics a chef’s knife to allow you to do intricate work and the depth ensures that your fingers are kept safe!

This is a stunning looking knife and totally unique in design. No other knife manufacturers have a knife of this shape!!
