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.

Sharp talking

Oriental Slicer – One of the best I have used. It is so versatile you just don’t want to use any other knife. Even my wife loves it and she is not in to knives. If you are looking for a knife that does everything, get this knife.

Evan Jones

Filleting Knife – I have a fish restaurant and I hammer this beauty. I absolutely hammer it. The balance and weight are perfect, there’s just enough flexibility in the blade and I wave a steel in its vague direction about once every 6 months. I love it. I’d get a room with it if that wouldn’t be weird.

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.

I was surprisingly impressed with the speed and efficiency of ordering on the site and delivery of the goods.

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.

Adam

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).

Pointed Paring Knife – This is one truly awesome piece of kit! It’s ultra sharp and nimble making it able to make precise cuts. I used it last weekend at a competition serving my ribs to be judged which it made light a excellent work of. It feels great to handle and looks fantastic!

Ian Spaul

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!

Haydn Watkins

Chef’s Knife – 9″ / 24cm – This is the one! Literally will smash any job. Beautifully weighted and stays insanely sharp. If you love your kitchen, but you don’t have this in it, it isn’t a kitchen. Sorry.
