About this product

I.O. Shen 270mm Sashimi Knife

A specialised fish knife with a bevel on one side and a flat edge on the other. You can use this primarily for sushi and smoked salmon cutting.

The beauty of this blade is the bevel, which once placed into your food, will not allow you to deviate from the path that you have set it on. If you use a standard chef's knife when cutting a side of salmon, you need to have a steady and accurate hand. With a sashimi knife, it ensures that you make perfect slices, every time! It also has a slight concave element to the flat side, making sure that your fish slices do not concertina on the blade.

A truly versatile knife, this can double as a carving knife for those who prefer to have a chunkier handle for their carving.

This is the right handed version.

The blade on this knife has a single bevel.

For many years, knife manufacturers have been trying to use increasingly harder steel to achieve the ultimate cutting edge. The hardness of stainless steel is measured on the Rockwell Scale, with 62 being the highest grade commercially available. However, the brittleness of such hard steel has always been a limiting factor.

I.O. Shen has overcome this problem by using an inner core of super hard Rockwell 62 steel protected by two layers of softer, shock absorbing Rockwell 10 stainless steel on the outside to produce the ultimate cutting edge. They call this Triplex Steel Technology.

All of the knives in the I.O. Shen Mastergrade range use the very latest technology to construct blades which are not only amazingly sharp but which will also retain their edge for a phenomenal amount of time. They have been hand sharpened to a 15 angle, which allows for wonderful slicing and portion control.

The unique handle design distinguishes I.O. Shen Mastergrade knives from all others. It is an essential factor in achieving balance and stability. The Tai Tang is not simply an embellishment, it is an integral part of the handle.

The handles are produced from a synthetic material called ebonite which is both durable and heat resistant, although dishwasher cleaning is not recommended.
