As with all Wüsthof knives, Wusthof forges the Ikon Blackwood 4.5" Utility knife from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel. The blade of this particular utility knife is longer than a paring knife but narrower than a chef's knife, making it a highly versatile accessory in the kitchen. The size and pointed tip make the Wusthof 4.5" utility knife useful for small and detailed tasks, yet the length of the blade can deftly handle larger work as well. It is perfect for paring, peeling, slicing, mincing, and cleaning vegetables or fruit. Additionally, it can even help with herbs and smaller cuts of meat. 

Laser-tested by Wüsthof, the hand-honed cutting edge is 30% sharper than most other knives and maintains blade precision better as well. As part of Wüsthof’s Ikon series, this knife combines the best features from all of Wüsthof's lines. A perfect harmony is struck between form and function: the weighted, double bolster provides ultimate balance and cutting control with a remarkable, 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 while in use slicing, mincing, dicing and chopping.

The contoured, ergonomically-designed handle, constructed from the finest African Blackwood (Grenadill), is complete with a full tang and triple-riveting that provide comfort and permanent security. With striking, 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. The farming of this unusual, valued wood is strictly controlled by the local government, protecting harvest sustainability and environmental stability.

Each Wusthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
