Welcome to I.O. Shen
I.O.Shen knives have been handcrafted by master craftsmen using Japanese steel and with paring them with westernised handles with a Tai Tang design.
Super sharp edges and the hardest stainless steel result in beautiful-looking knives that are perfectly weighted and balanced, with long-lasting blades that rarely need sharpening because they maintain their edge so well.
I.O.Shen knives are designed in the UK by expert knife designer and owner, Natalie Clifton, or they’re collaborations with some of the UK’s best chefs and then manufactured in Japan.
Recognised for their excellence, I.O.Shen knives are perfect for professional chefs and home cooks who’d like top-of-the-range, professional quality knives.
There’s a knife to suit any task as well as a choice of storage options and sharpeners.
Mai Peng 10th Anniversary Gift Set – I was very pleased with the item. I collect I.O.Shen Knives and this Mai Peng Paring Knife is perfect for precise chopping. It was in a gift box with a pen knife. I was disappointed in the pen knife as it arrived damaged but I sent it back and a replacement was sent. If you buy I.O.Shen, the price is comparable to other elite knives so the pen knife is an added bonus.
Extra Long Bread Knife – Unlike many serrated bread knives I’ve tried over my professional career, this knife will cut the softest or crustiest of breads with ease and precision.
Chef’s Knife 8″ / 21cm – A ridiculously strong and reliable chefs knife that seems to want you to put near enough no effort at all into cutting an amazing knife for all levels of experience.
Broad Blade Chinese Shredding Knife – The straight edged blade of this knife makes shredding and cutting delicate herbs a breeze! Unlike most knife brands this blade won’t bruise salads or herbs and ensures a perfect cut every time. Perfectly weighted and balanced like all the knives in the range that I have and use daily!
Double-sided Magnetic Knife Block Set – I evaluated a number of makes and types of knife before opting purchase the I.O.Shen knife block. This is a great value way of buying 4 excellent knives with a stylish storage block.
I have been very impressed with the I.O.Shen range. The weight and balance of each knife is perfect. This coupled with super sharp blades means you can prepare a wide range of ingredients confidently, quickly and accurately.
Preparation time has also been reduced as a result of better knife skills and there is a definite improvement in my presentation, too.
I was so impressed with the knives provided with the block, I have added the Mai Peng 10th Anniversary and Broad Blade Shredding knives to my collection.
I managed to damage the blade on my pairing knife. I.O.Shen provided prompt and courteous service, restoring the blade to its former glory.
Outstanding products, outstanding service and support!!!
How did I manage without these knives before ????!
Khay Dee Deba – I received this as a gift for Christmas today and have put it through it’s paces today during a busy lunch service! I can see myself using it a lot!
Having the 3 Piece Knife Set in your knife set, is a must! They are very good and reliable to do the task that you have to do and I will recommend them to any up coming Chef that likes a good quality Knife with them in the kitchen.
Cleaver – Have to say I am really impressed with this cleaver. The weight and balance is amazing. It is a very substantial clever and makes getting through bones and tougher jobs so much easier. As with any of IO Shen blades, it does the work for you. It has become one of my favourite knives of the range. Worth the investment.
Oriental Slicer – The one big problem with this knife is that it is SO versatile, SO useful that it’s hard to justify buying more IO Shen knives. It does it all, I’ve had mine for 5-6 years, sharpened it once & it is still razor sharp. The perfect way to start a happy addiction. If you have one you don’t need more knives but you do NEED more (I’ve got 3 others).
Oriental Slicer – As an amateur i was using the cheapest knives i could get – i took the plunge and got THE ORIENTAL SLICER and i use it for just about everything i do – this slicer makes you feel like a professional and the team at IO SHEN are incredible nice and friendly and helpful = FORGET THE REST USE THE BEST
