A stunning collection of exceptional knives from the expert knife-crafters at Wusthof. The 9-piece Ikon Blackwood Block Set comes fully equipped with a range of attractive and functional cutlery, along with some additional implements that help to compliment and maintain your knives for years to come. Each knife contained within this block set is part of Wusthof’s renowned Ikon series and has been constructed using the finest African Blackwood. Blackwood distinguishes itself as an ideal wood for knife handles due to its warp-resistant nature and handsome aesthetic.
A 3.5” Paring Knife makes any small dicing or mincing tasks simple and enjoyable. A full-tang blade and triple-riveted handle make for perfect balance and maneuverability when sectioning citrus or mincing garlic, parsley, and more.
The 6” Utility Knife serves as a comfortable medium between the smaller paring knife and the larger cook’s knife. A perfect tool for scouring onions, chopping celery, or coring fruits, this knife is sure to fill a useful role in any kitchen.
A 7” Santoku Knife is an unmatched fish and vegetable preparation blade. A special scalloped edge allows even the thinnest-sliced vegetables to fall away with ease. The unique curved spine and tip of the santoku enable it to achieve a smooth and effortless motion, all the way through the cut.
The 8” Bread Knife features a wide-toothed serrated edge that is perfect for breaking through the crusted outer layer of your favorite baguette, without damaging the soft and pillowy insides. This blade is also ideal for preparing sliced bread for sandwiches.
An 8” Cook’s Knife could easily be the centerpiece of your knife collection and will certainly be the blade that does the most work. This cook’s knife has been graced with Wusthof’s precision-forging technology and designed to encompass the lion’s share of cooking tasks, such as dicing, chopping, slicing meat or vegetables, crushing herbs, and more.
The 9” Hollow-Edge Carving Knife is a shining example of how Wusthof brings everything to the table when it comes to knife design. This long and thin bladed carving knife features a hollow edge that allows sliced meat to effortlessly fall onto the plate. The laser-precise forging of this knife lends it unparalleled meat-slicing ability. Pork, poultry, beef, lamb, steak, and more, benefit from this blade’s pristine craftsmanship.
A 10” Sharpening Steel is included to assist you in keeping your collection of fine German cutlery in peak performing condition. A specialty grain and texture along the steel rod keeps each blade with a keen edge.
Stainless Steel Kitchen Shears can step up to the plate in a pinch, to help you tackle all those cutting jobs that are inconvenient or unsafe to perform with a knife. Snipping twine, cutting packaging, and even separating poultry, can be easily carried out using these efficient and ergonomically-designed shears.
The included 15-slot Walnut Block is a very attractive and safe way to ensure that all your knifes are stored in one place and remain easy-to-access. Each slot is angled to protect the blades during storage, while several slots for storing sharpening steels and kitchen shears are present.
In order to help you achieve the most satisfactory experience with your new knives, Wusthof has included their Ikon Wood Care Kit to help maintain the polish and consistency of the beautiful Blackwood handles. This kit contains a restorative mineral oil and polishing towel that brings the luster back to your blackwood handles, along with a lidded storage tin for convenience.
