The Wüsthof Classic Ikon 2 Piece Starter Set provides two basic blades that no kitchen should be without: A 3.5” Paring Knife (4086) and an 8” Cook’s Knife (4596).
The 3.5” blade represents the most versatile of all parers. Use this petite blade for precise control while mincing shallots, onions and herbs, as well as for cutting and cleaning vegetables. Ranking as the most popular blade in terms of style and size, the 8” Cook’s knife is destined to be one of your most-used knives. The front portion of the blade allows deft handling of detailed tasks, while the full length of the blade excels with larger chopping and cutting chores. Appropriate for meats, vegetables, fruits and herbs, use the 8” Cook’s knife for chipping, mincing, slicing and dicing nearly any food. Take extra care with this fine blade, as Wüsthof intentionally grinds their cook´s knives to be extra thin for optimum cutting performance, and so chopping through bones can damage this extra-fine edge.
The Ikon series represents Wüsthof’s premier quality knives. Each Classic Ikon blade starts life as a single blank of high-carbon stainless steel and is forged using Wüsthof’s proprietary Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) for long-lasting extreme sharpness. Each knife is hand-honed to provide a notably keen edge that’s easy to maintain. The Ikon Classic series features a double bolster for noteworthy heft and balance within a sophisticated and contemporary aesthetic.
The full tang offers flawless balance, and triple riveting construction permanently secures the blade within the handle. Fashioned from a durable, synthetic polymer, the ergonomic handle fits seamlessly for better hygiene. The prestigious trident logo is proudly etched into the handle end, completing each fine Classic Ikon blade with authentication of its sublime quality.
Each knife of the Classic Ikon 2pc Starter Set is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
