Product Info

No kitchen should be without this manual food processor. It's perfect for slicing, mincing and dicing of all kinds of food.

Based on the best-selling Wusthof Classic Series, each Wusthof Classic Ikon knife is drop forged from a single piece of chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel and tempered to an optimal Rockwell 58 hardness. This specialised high-carbon, stain-resistant alloy ensures that the cutting edge of the knife is both razor sharp and easy to resharpen.

The knife blade is skillfully honed by hand to an incredibly sharp edge, the entire length of which can be sharpened due to the partial bolster. The blade is ground thinner than usual, so there is less resistance when chopping and slicing. Finally a computer controlled grinding and polishing of the blade ensures that there is a perfect tapering from bolster to tip providing you with a knife with maximum strength, balance and heft.

Bolster:
It is the perfectly weighted bolster which gives the knife its heft and serves to protect your fingers too. The Ikon Series has a precision bolster angled towards the hand for exceptional comfort, control and balance. The precision bolster is tapered, allowing total-edge sharpening from tip to handle.

Handle:
The full tang knife has a beautiful, synthetic handle that is stylishly contoured to give your hand comfort and control. Stainless steel triple rivets secure the slightly curved, weighted handle to the blade while maintaining its elegant appearance and superb ergonomic comfort.

Cleaning:
If you value your tools we recommend that, after each use, you wash your knives with warm water and a little detergent, rinse carefully and dry with a towel. Corrosive food particles will not affect your blade if washed off directly after use.

German knives and cars - the best!

Review by Marinda N. on 25 January 2013

It took me a months worth of research and going to and fro to finally decide on these Wusthof's. I liked the idea of a sturdy German blade more to hack away at butternuts, chop, portion chickens etc. These were rated above Zwilling J. A. Henkels, although those are also some of the very best. I haven't regretted my purchase yet, they are beautiful. Wash and dry them immediately, never in the dishw Read more

The sharpest knife I own

Review by Louisa D. on 29 November 2013

This fella has a lovely grip, and slices and dices with ease, through anything I want to cook. Anything from onions, to chicken breasts quiver when they see me heading to them with my trusty Wusthof knife.
