Niku Thin Boning Knife
Designed by Chef Karim Maoui, who also designed the Maoui Deba, the Niku is a 150mm thin blade boning knife most suited to intricate butchery work. The handle has been inverted to make it easier to hold and to avoid too much pressure on the palm. Two top UK based chefs - Michael Wignall and Tommy Banks had very nice things to say about this new addition to the IO Shen range:
'A serious knife for serious butchery.' Michael Wignall
'A class act and essential for any chef who butchers.' Tommy Banks
PS 'niku' means 'meat' in Japanese
The IO Shen design team, who are based in the UK, go to great lengths to make sure that their new models are designed with professional chefs in mind. That way, even if you're 'only' an enthusiastic home chef, you know that the IO Shen range will do what they need to do, and just keep going, plus are designed in a way that they are comfortable to use, even when a huge amount of chopping and cutting is required.
A focus for some of these knives is for use at the barbeque, something that is gaining in popularity in the UK, and of course here in Australia is pretty much a part of our national identity. So these barbeque knives should feel right at home here.
