Forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon 12" Salmon Slicer has a hollow edge to prevent paper-thin slices from sticking to the blade by creating air pockets while cutting. The hollow edge combined with the super sharp blade prevent the meat from tearing. The thin, flexible blade makes it ideal for cutting delicate fish like salmon, but it is also useful for slicing ham or roast beef very thinly.
Laser testing ensures each hand-honed cutting edge is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. The traditional weighted, forward bolster adds heft, while the unique rear bolster equalizes the weight's proportions. This provides ultimate balance and cutting control while still creating an impressively elegant appearance. Allowing for easy sharpening of the entire blade, the precision forward bolster also makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length while cutting. A contoured, ergonomically-designed handle complete with a full tang and triple-riveting allows for comfort as well as permanent security. This perfect grip paired with the blade's sharpness require far less effort to use the knife. Featuring the classic Wusthof logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polypropylene.
Each Wusthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
