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.

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!

The IOShen Filleting Knife can fillet a Lemon Sole or Plaice in 3 mins with this beauty. A wonderful knife, like holding a matchstick, every cut is a breeze.

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 – This knife is just phenomenal. I am fairly new to IO SHEN but i am now hooked. This knife is just purely better than the rest. Also, Natalie’s knowledge and passion is simply unmatched by any other supplier i have ever dealt with both food and non-food. I WILL NEVER LOOK AT ANOTHER BRAND AGAIN.

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.

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.

Si Toft

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.
