The Wüsthof Classic Ikon 7" Fillet knife offers a super sharp blade that easily separates delicate meats from surrounding skin and bones. Forged from a singular piece of high-carbon stainless steel for exceptional strength, this blade tapers from the spine to make it ultra thin and flexible.
The 7-inch length of this fillet knife makes it perfect for medium-to-smaller sized fish like trout, salmon, and bass, or even larger flatfish. Ultra thin, the blade closely cuts under skin and around bone to produce the most meat possible.
Since not all fish are destined to be cleaned and cooked in a kitchen environment, Wusthof includes a convenient leather sheath for safe storage. Featuring loops to attach to a belt or other strap, the sheath transforms this fine culinary instrument into the perfect outdoor tool for fireside cleaning of fish or game while camping or during other outdoor activity.
Hand-honed and laser tested to ensure quality, Wusthof knives are considerably sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. A perfect harmony is forged between the traditional weighted, forward bolster that adds heft, and the distinctive rear bolster that equalizes the weight's proportions. With ultimate balance and cutting control, form and function harmonize as the knife impresses as an elegant object of beauty.
The precision forward bolster makes the complete length of the blade accessible, allowing for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade for slicing, cleaning, gutting, boning and skinning. Complete with a full tang and triple-riveting, the contoured handle provides comfort within its secure construction. The handle is crafted from synthetic, durable polypropylene and features the classic Wusthof logo etched into the end.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon 7" Fillet knife is produced in Solingen, Germany and carries a lifetime guarantee.
