The IO Shen 10” / 27cm Sashimi Knife is a specialized fish knife with a bevel on one side and a flat edge on the other. It is used 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 i.e. if you use a standard chef’s knife when cutting a side of salmon, you need to have a steady hand and precision accuracy.
With a sashimi knife, it ensure that you take perfect slices every time. The blade has a slight concave element to the flat side, making sure that your fish slices do not concertina on the blade. A truly versitile knife – this can double as a carving knife for those who prefer to have a chunkier handle for their carving.
