Product Info

Fresh, crunchy breads, even cutting the birthday cake - the serrated edge does it all.

Wüsthof Classic Ikon Range

Based on the best-selling Classic Series, each Wüsthof 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 re-sharpen.

The knife blade is skilfully 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.

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.

Made in Germany

Wüsthof knives, scissors and kitchen tools have been made in Solingen, Germany, by the family-owned operation since 1814. The company regularly wins international awards and are given top ratings by reviews and publications. Wüsthof knives are used by national culinary teams, and famous chefs worldwide, including Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and James Martin.

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.

Care Instructions

Knife Sharpening

All knives require regular sharpening. Wüsthof manufacturers sharpening options that suit all of their knives, including whetstones, honing steels and pull-through sharpeners. See the sharpening range here.

Dishwasher Instructions

Although some Wüsthof products are dishwasher safe, we do not recommend that your knives and scissors be put in the dishwasher. Blades can knock together, damaging them, and if not washed soon after use, corrosive food particles can damage the blade. Rather wash your knives after each use with warm water and a little detergent, rinse carefully and dry with a towel.
