An excellent starter set for cooking enthusiasts, the Wusthof Classic Ikon 2 Piece Asian Knife Set includes a Wüsthof Classic Ikon 7” Santoku and a Wüsthof Classic Ikon 3” Paring knife.
Forged from single piece of specially tempered high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wüsthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife offers a hollow edge that creates air pockets between the food and blade. This feature prevents the delicate slices you’ll create from sticking to the blade. Ideal for slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping, this Japanese chef's knife excels with fish, meats, and vegetables. With its longer 7” length, this knife offers more leverage while cutting into foods.
Constructed using the same processes as the Santoku, the Wüsthof Classic Ikon Paring knife has a straight blade, making it perfect for intricate tasks such as mincing or dicing. The curved back of the cutting edge allows it to be used with extreme precision for detailed, straight cuts. The knives of this set compliment each other perfectly; one for larger, bulkier chopping, and one for meticulous and detailed jobs.
Each hand-honed cutting edge is laser tested to ensure it is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than other knives. A perfect harmony is struck between the traditional weighted, forward bolster that adds heft, and the distinctive rear bolster that equalizes the weight's proportions. With form and function working together, these knives provide the ultimate in balance and cutting control while being strikingly beautiful at the same time. The precision forward bolster of each knife allows for easy sharpening of the entire blade, and makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length whatever the task may be. Comfort and permanent security result from Wüsthof’s contoured, ergonomically-designed handle, complete with a full tang and triple-riveting. With their perfect grip paired with the extraordinary sharpness of the blades, these knives require far less effort to use. The handle is constructed from a synthetic, durable polymer and displays the renowned trident logo etched into the end as a proud testament to pure Wüsthof quality.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku and Paring knives are made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
