I.O. Shen 160mm Sahm Khom Slicer
I.O. Shen 160mm Sahm Khom Slicer / Santoku Knife
Pronounced "Sam Com", which translated literally means triple sharp (in homage to the Triplex Steel Technology in the blade), this is one of the most instantly recognisable blades on the market. The younger sibling of the Oriental Slicer, it can tackle the same tough root vegetables and delicate herbs with the added bonus of being lighter and particularly useful at slicing and dicing meat. The amazingly sharp point strips through vegetables with ease and the heal of the blade is a tour de force.
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 62Â° 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 62Â° steel protected by two layers of softer, shock absorbing Rockwell 10Â° 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 15Â° 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.
