Like all Wüsthof knives, the blade of the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood 8” Carving knife is forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel. This particular knife offers a hollow edge design that creates air pockets between the food and blade as you slice. This function prevents the delicate slices from sticking to the blade, while allowing the juices in the meat to remain in each slice. The narrow, long blade makes it perfect for carving roasts, ham, turkey, duck, and other poultry, while its remarkable design prevents shredding with each slice. This knife is an impressive must-have for any holiday dinner or large family meal.
Each hand-honed cutting edge is laser tested to ensure that it is better at maintaining blade precision and 30% sharper than most other brand knives. The Ikon line draws from all the best features of Wüsthof's other lines to create an unparalleled culinary experience. The weighted, double bolster offers an impressively elegant appearance while providing ultimate balance and cutting control. The precision-forward bolster allows for effortless sharpening of the entire blade, and makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length while carving and slicing through your more monumental meals. Constructed using the finest Grenadill (African Blackwood), the contoured, ergonomically-designed handle is complete with a full tang and triple-riveting to provide permanent security as well as for comfort. As the world's densest wood and also one of the world's hardest, Grenadill expands and contracts far less than other woods. Grenadill farming is strictly controlled by the local government for harvest sustainability and environmental stability. The final touch is provided as Wüsthof etches their distinctive logo into the end of the handle just as an artist signs a masterpiece. Hand wash only.
