Description

Santoku knives are great for chef's who need the benefits of a cook's knife but prefer a lighter, hollow edged knife. The Wusthof Classic Ikon 5 inch Santoku knife has a hollow edge that creates air pockets between the food and blade. These air pockets prevent the delicate food slices the knife creates from sticking to the blade. The Classic Ikon Santoku knife is ideal for cutting fish, meats, sushi and vegetables. Slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping are all jobs this Japanese chef's knife can tackle with ease. The 5 inch version of the santoku knife makes it more manageable for smaller cutting and chopping tasks. The Wusthof Classic Ikon santoku knife is also available in a 7 inch variety for larger cutting needs. 


The blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife is forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel. The blades are then hand honed to create the sharpest cutting edge around. The santoku knife is then laser tested to ensure 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 and maintain the knife. Featuring the classic Wusthof logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polypropylene.


The Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
