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.

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 ????!

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!

Chef’s Knife – 6″ / 16.5cm – After a very informative demonstration and trial, I bought my knife from the Good Food show in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago. I’m not making this up when I say that this knife has transformed the way I prepare food. I’m left handed and so using most knives can feel quite unsafe to me and I’ve had more cuts from blunt knives than I would care to count. The I.O Shen knife makes me feel exceptionally confident when I’m using it. The weight of it in my hand feels right, the handle is comfortable, and the sharpness of the blade means that my hand doesn’t tire from having to apply too much pressure when chopping food as it tends to with less sharp knives. I’m a big fan and already considering which I.O Shen knife to purchase next. Thank you I.O Shen.

Just a home cook

Chef’s Knife – 12″ / 30cm – Without doubt, the best feeling “big” knife I have ever had the pleasure of using. Perfectly balanced and precise. Tackles any task with ease.
