Oriental Slicer – Fantastic knife, used for every occasion.

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.

Pointed Paring Knife – What a superb knife! Easily tackles the smallest intricate work to larger tasks. Feels great in the hand and the blade is like a razor.

Chef’s Knife 8″ / 21cm – An excellent, well balanced and comfortable knife. Versatile enough for day-to-day tasks, and attractive to stand out during presentations and demonstrations. Service from the team sparkles as do the blades.

Utility Knife – Just purchased this to compliment my 9″ chef’s knife, also an I.O. Shen. This 5″ knife is ideal for the smaller more delicate preparation, such as fruit and smaller vegetables and has excellent balance and weight. Super sharp out of the box, as expected and a pleasure to use. I have a Global GSF of a similar size, but I wanted a blade with a bit more weight and power, which this little beauty has in spades. Very impressed!

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.

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 – 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.

Chef’s Knife 8″ / 21cm – Beautiful looking knife, has a very sharp edge straight out of the box that allows you to cut food like air. It has just enough weight to aid in cutting but is still light, very well balanced knife. It feels great in my hand and has one of the best shaped profiles ive come across, it feels so natural to use. I know go to I.O Shen over any other knife in my collection, wusthof, shun, etc. There is only one fault with this knife which is quite a big one but not enough to put me off the knife. Note this problem is non existent on the larger knifes but there is very little knuckle clearance. My fingers are small and unless I keep the handle infront of the chopping board my knuckles will contact the board. This is quite a decent flaw in an otherwise flawless knife in my opinion.

Mai Peng 10th Anniversary Gift Set – Was given the set as an anniversary present, and was even more surprised to see that it had been engraved as well.

The Mai Peng has become a firm favourite very quickly, and I’ll reach for it for chills, ginger and onions in preference to the paring or Sahm Kohm.
