The Wusthof Classic Ikon 10" Chef's knife is the largest multi purpose knife available in the Classic Ikon collection. As with all Wusthof cook's knives, the blade of the Classic Ikon Cook's knife is forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, making it the highest quality around. The Classic Ikon 10" chef'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 10 inch size is suited for the largest of foods and provides maximum leverage.
The Classic Ikon 10" Chef's knife features a contoured, ergonomically-designed handle complete with a full tang and triple-riveting which 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.
As for the blade, 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 remarkable 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.
