Due to an increasing demand by customers for personalised I.O.Shen knives, we have invested in a Roland 3 axis CNC engraving machine installed at the Bicester Factory.
We are able to engrave personal messages on up to 3 lines (depending on the width of the knife).
“Among top chefs there is a continuing fascination with Japanese knives – perhaps they all nurse a secret wish to be Samaurai warriors?
….I.O.Shen has produced a reasonably prices japanese blade (triplex steel, multi layers to hold a fine edge longer) with a European-style handle (for better grip and with a special ornate tang designed for durability).
…..they are a joy to use”
Independent Magazine – Feb ’07
- Triple layer steel gives a razor sharp edge, while it’s blade and handle have near-perfect balance and stability
- Carrot: Clean cut, no drag on blade. Cuts paper thin slices.
- Tomato: Makes quick work of even the ripest – no hang-ups on troublesome outer skin.
- Onion: Cuts like it’s not even there! Slight curvature of the blade makes dicing a breeze.
Verdict: The Luke Skywalker light-sabre of chef’s knives!

In 2007, I.O. Shen won the coveted ‘Excellence in Housewares Award’. This was is recognition of price vs performance and product design.
