One of the most versatile knives in the kitchen is the chef's knife. While they come in many different lengths, the Wusthof Classic Ikon 9" Cook's Knife is slightly larger than the typical 8" size. Forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Cook's knife is extremely versatile. The front section is best for smaller jobs, while the rest is perfect for larger ones. Ideal for cutting almost anything, such as meat, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, this knife is capable of slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping with ease. It is an indispensable, all-purpose knife for any kitchen. The 9 inch size is suited for providing more leverage than the 8 inch, while being more wieldy than the 10 inch. If you are looking for a chef's style knife in a lighter weight, consider a santoku knife.
All Wusthof knives including the 9" Classic Ikon chef's knife undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet the high standards of the Wusthof corporation. Laser testing ensures 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. Featuring the classic Wusthof logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polypropylene.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon chef's knives are made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
