We are proud to announce that we are now official stockists of I.O. SHEN knives. I.O. SHEN knives are truly some of the best knives around and we are very excited to now stock these in store.
To give you a bit more background on I.O. SHEN knives we have decided to write this blog post on the brand and the range we will have in store.
I.O SHEN knives are all graded for their hardness.They are made from top of the range steel, this makes them more robust and sharper for longer. For those who aren't knife enthusiasts quite yet, knives sturdiness is measured on a scale called Rockwell. Rockwell 62º being the highest grade commercially available.
A standard Japanese knife usually comes in between 54º and 58º Rockwell, this is because Rockwell 62º would easily snap or chip the blade is not handled properly.
However, I.O SHEN have managed to overcome this issue. I.O SHEN mastergrade knives have overcome this issue by using a layer of extremely hard Japanese steel (Rockwell 62º), which is sandwiched between two layers of softer stainless steel (Rockwell 10º), to produce the ultimate cutting edge.
Another element differentiating I.O. SHEN knives from other brands is the knife handle. They have the weight of a traditional German knife making the knife much easier to handle with greater precision. So I.O SHEN have managed to perfectly combine both Japanese and German excellence.
I.O SHEN knives are the perfect set of knives for both professionals and enthusiastic amateur chefs!
