The most versatile of all parers: for mincing shallots, onions and herbs as well as cleaning and cutting vegetables.
The paring knife has a short, non-serrated blade which allows for precise cuts. It is perfect for mincing as well as cleaning and cutting fruit and vegetables.
Wüsthof Ikon Range
To own a Wüsthof Ikon knife is to own an exclusive masterpiece. Ikon handles are made of Grenadill wood, and the distinct wood grain markings makes every knife unique. Grenadill is a sustainable species that is resistant to moisture because of its extreme density, minimal porosity, and high resin content.
The forged, full tang blade has a 2/3 bolster which means that you can cut right along the full length of the blade.
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.
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.
All knives require regular sharpening. Wüsthof manufactures sharpening options that suit all of their knives, including whetstones, honing steels and pull-through sharpeners. See the sharpening range here.
Wüsthof has a range of storage options to keep your knives safe: magnets, blocks, in-drawer organisers, and knife rolls. See the storage range here.
Wüsthof products come with a lifetime warranty, and will be repaired or replaced if there are any defects in workmanship or materials.
