Pronounced “Sam Com”, which translated literally means triple sharp (in homage to the Triplex Steel Technology in the blade), this IO Shen Santoku Sahm Khom is one of the most instantly recognizable blades on the market. The ‘younger brother’ to the Oriental Slicer, it can tackle the same tough root vegetables & delicate herbs with the added bonus of being lighter & particularly useful at slicing & dicing meat. The amazingly sharp point strips through vegetables with ease & the heal of the blade is a ‘tour du force’! Using Triplex Steel Technology, IO Shen knives have a layer of extremely hard Japanese steel (Rockwell 62°) sandwiched between two layers of softer stainless steel (Rockwell 10°) to produce the ultimate cutting edge. The softer layers add a protective shock absorbing element to the blade whilst the harder steel which runs through the middle is exposed at the edge of the blade to ensure that your knife is the sharpest blade that can possibly be manufactured.
