About this product

I.O. Shen 90mm Profile Paring Knife

As used by Jamie Oliver.

At 90mm, this is the baby of the I.O.Shen family. An extremely useful blade, this is like using a mini Sahm Khom Slicer and is useful for all food preparation. It is a perfect length for peeling vegetables and it is an extremely useful preparation knife. It may be small, but this blade still has the ultra hard Triplex Steel Technology at work, giving you the ultimate cutting edge and edge retention.

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.
