The Wusthof Classic Ikon 3-Piece Chef's Knife Set is an excellent introduction to the pleasures of using a Wusthof knife in your kitchen preparation. This trio of knives is a great professional starter knife set, being extremely versatile and capable of accomplishing nearly any task in the kitchen. The Wusthof Classic Ikon line of knives are 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 8 inch size is suited for medium-large foods and cooking for families.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon Paring Knife has a tapered blade, allowing it to be extremely versatile and a kitchen staple. The 3.5 inch cutting edge is made for any task ranging from mincing to slicing and can also be used to cut or clean vegetables.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon Carving knife has a straight edge to prevent shredding while slicing larger meats. It is perfect for carving roasts, ham, turkey, duck, and all other poultry. The narrow, long blade is designed to cut the thinnest of slices with ease.
For all three knives in this set, 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. Laser testing ensures each hand-honed cutting edge is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives.
All three knives in the Wusthof Classic Ikon Chef's Knife set is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
