A single piece of high-carbon stainless steel is used to forge the blade of the Wüsthof Ikon Blackwood 5" Sausage knife, formed with serrated edges for cutting through tough exteriors without crushing soft interiors. This makes the sausage knife ideal for slicing crunchy breads, tomatoes, cheese, and hard salami. Smaller in size, the knife can nimbly cut bagels, rolls, and hard-skinned fruits or vegetables with ease. The medium-sized serrated sausage utility knife provides productive versatility.
Wusthof hand-hones and laser-tests each cutting edge to ensure superior quality, resulting in a blade that it is 30% sharper and better at maintaining its precision edge than most other knives. The Ikon series takes the finest features of all the other Wusthof lines and combines them into the pinnacle of Wusthof quality. Form and function harmonize as the bolster delivers ultimate balance in a strikingly elegant appearance. The precision forward bolster grants access to the complete length of the blade, which allows for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade for cutting and slicing. The contoured, ergonomically-designed handle is constructed with a full tang and triple-riveting to allow for comfort and permanent security.
As if this knife weren’t strikingly beautiful enough, Wüsthof delivers the coup de maître by selecting African Blackwood (Grenadill) for the handle. African Blackwood is the world's densest wood and also one of the world's hardest, offering much less expansion and contraction than other woods. Only small harvests are permitted of this fine, valuable wood, as local government protects its environmental sustainability. Once assembled from these unsurpassed components, the dignified Wüsthof logo is then etched into the end of this work of art as a testament to its supreme quality. Hand wash only.
The Wusthof Ikon Blackwood sausage knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
