By using a Wusthof Classic Ikon Fillet knife, the super sharp blade tip will pierce the skin of your fish without tearing. The knife's blade was fashioned from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel which tapers from the spine to make it ultra thin and flexible. The 7 inch size makes this fillet knife ideal for medium-to-smaller sized fish like trout, salmon, and bass, or even larger flatfish. Being ultra thin, the blade closely cuts under skin and around bone to produce the most meat possible.
Wusthof knives are laser tested to ensure each hand-honed cutting edge is sharper by 30% 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 the knife. Featuring the classic Wusthof logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polypropylene.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon Fillet knife is produced in Solingen, Germany and carries a lifetime guarantee.
