The inverted mid-sized handle makes it a comfortable fit, easing the pressure on your palm"Chef Karim Maoui, Designer. I.O. Shen knives use Triplex steel technology for an exceptionally sharp and long lasting cutting edge. The hardness of steel is measured using a Rockwell hardness scale. The harder the steel the longer it stays sharp.The downside to this is that it is also very brittle.To overcome this problem, I.O. Shen sandwich a layer of Rockwell 62Â° steel (the hardest steel available) between two softer layers of Rockwell 10Â° steel. This is then expertly hand sharpened to a 15Â° angle. I.O. Shen's unique Tai Tang handle sets it apart from any other knife.The design isn't just an embellishment, it's an integral part of the handle providing balance and stability.Lifetime manufacturer's guarantee.Hand wash only.
