A single piece of high-carbon stainless steel is used to forge the versatile blade of the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood Hollow Edge 8” Cook's knife. The front section of the knife is adept at handling smaller jobs, while the rest manages the larger ones well. Ideal for cutting almost anything, this knife is capable of slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping meat, vegetables, fruit, and herbs with ease. The advanced hollow edge design creates pockets of air between the blade and food, preventing delicate slices from sticking to the blade, and allowing each piece to maintain its juices. The 8 inch size is suited for medium-to-large foods and cooking for families, making it an indispensable, all-purpose knife for virtually any kitchen.
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 best features from all of Wusthof's lines are combined to form the unsurpassed quality of the Ikon line. Form and function join forces as the bolster delivers ultimate balance with an 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 while slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping. The contoured, ergonomically-designed handle is constructed using African Blackwood, while a full tang and triple-riveting allow for comfort and permanent security. Ranking among the world’s densest and hardest wood, African Blackwood offers reduced contraction and expansion for enhanced stability over other woods. The harvesting of all African Blackwood is controlled by the local government and restricted to a small allotment for environmental sustainability. The prestigious Wusthof logo can be found etched into the end of the handle as witness to its supreme quality. For best results only hand wash your Wusthof Ikon Blackwood Hollow Edge Chef's knife.
