If you are looking for a chef's or cook's knife in the 7 inch size, consider the Japanese version, the Wusthof Classic Ikon 7" Santoku knife. Forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife has a hollow edge that creates air pockets between the food and blade. The santoku's hollow edge blade prevents the delicate slices the knife makes from sticking to the blade. A santoku knife is ideal for cutting fish, meats, and vegetables. Slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping are the jobs this Japanese chef's knife is best at. Being larger than the 5" version, this 7" Classic Ikon Santoku knife offers more leverage while cutting foods, especially those on the larger side.
Like all Wusthof Classic Ikon knives, the 7" santoku undergoes laser testing 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 the knife. The handle of the Wusthof Classic Ikon 7" Santoku knife is made from durable, synthetic polypropylene and features the classic Wusthof logo.
Each Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
