The blade of the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood Paring Knife is forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel and tapered into an extremely versatile and a kitchen staple. The 3.5 inch cutting edge of this practical little knife is ideal for mincing and slicing, as well as to cut or clean vegetables. Each hand-honed cutting edge is laser tested to ensure it is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than other knives.
The Ikon line draws from all the best features of Wusthof's other lines to create an unparalleled culinary experience. A perfect harmony is struck between form and function as the weighted, double bolster provides ultimate balance and cutting control in an impressively elegant appearance. The precision forward bolster allows for easy sharpening of the entire blade, and makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length whatever the task may be.
Constructed using the finest African Blackwood, the contoured, ergonomically-designed handle is complete with a full tang and triple-riveting to provide permanent security as well as for comfort. As the world's densest wood and also one of the hardest, African Blackwood expands and contracts far less than other woods. The farming of this rare wood is strictly controlled by the local government, protecting harvest sustainability and environmental stability.
Wüsthof presents this unparalleled union of aesthetics and functional versatility with their distinguished trident logo etched into the end of the handle. Hand wash only.
The Wusthof Ikon Blackwood paring knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
