Product Info

Styled after the Japanese Cook's Knife this blade is just right for preparing not only fine Asian but also Western cuisine.

  • Triple riveted, full tang handle
  • The hollow edge creates pockets of air which prevent extra thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade.
  • Not dishwasher safe, wash by hand only.

All knife measurements are for the blade only, not the handle.

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.

We bought this knife 3 years ago, and it is still razor sharp. The handle is smooth and ergonomically shaped, knife is well balanced and a pleasure to use. The grooves ensure that the blade doesn't "stick" in whatever it is that you are cutting. Exception to that rule is soft cheese, but then this isn't the right tool for the job of cutting soft cheese, is it? Highly recommended.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
