Classic Ikon knives are forged from a single piece of specially tampered high carbon steel for strength and balance. Black synthetic handles are triple riveted onto the handle for a seamless, hygienic fit. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) has certified these knives for meeting strict public health standards.
