Wusthof forges the blade of the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood 3" Peeling Knife from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel to a completely straight edge, making it adept for handling intricate tasks such as mincing or dicing. The curved back of the cutting edge allows it to be used with exact precision for meticulous, detailed cuts. Hand-honed and laser-tested by Wusthof, each cutting edge is 30% sharper than most other knives and better at maintaining blade precision as well.
As part of Wusthof’s Ikon series, this knife combines the best features from all of Wusthof's lines. Form and function unite in harmony in the weighted, double bolster that delivers ultimate cutting control and balance while leaving a lasting visual impression with its strikingly elegant appearance. The precision forward bolster makes the complete length of the blade accessible, allowing for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade in mincing, dicing and precision cutting. The contoured, ergonomic handle allows for comfort as well as permanent security with its a full tang and triple-riveting.
Displaying the classic Wusthof logo etched into the heel, the handle is crafted from extremely dense, high resin content African Blackwood. Admired for its deep tones that range from dark purple to brownish black, African Blackwood ranks among the hardest and most dense wood in the world, contracting & expanding much less than other types of wood. Only small harvests are permitted of this rare wood, as local government protects its environmental sustainability. The Wusthof Ikon Blackwood peeling knife should be hand washed only.
