The Wusthof Classic Ikon 8" bread knife is perfect for slicing through breads without damaging them. Due to the nature of breads, a cook's knife or similar will tear and mash the bread flat while trying to slice through the crusty outer layer. The Classic Ikon bread knife uses its serrated edges to easily slice through thick crusts without damaging the delicate soft bread on the inside. Forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon bread knife is the highest quality. Capable of cutting the largest of loaves, the Classic Ikon bread knife knife also works for cakes, fruits, and fried food. Its triangular tip makes it versatile enough for these various tasks.
The blade of a Wusthof knife is unlike any other. Strict laser testing procedures 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. Providing ultimate balance and cutting control, the Wusthof Classic Ikon bread knife still offers an impressively elegant appearance atop its sophisticated features. 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 Classic Ikon knives features the classic Wusthof logo, and is made from synthetic, durable polypropylene.
