Crafted from an individual piece of high carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon 7” Santoku is pristine and unmatched. Showcasing a razor-sharp edge, this blade was honed by hand and guaranteed to last longer than other leading competitors. With this blade you can effortlessly achieve paper-thin slices of deli meats, vegetables and fruits.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon 7” Santoku knife has a hollow edge. This allows for air pockets to develop between the blade and the ingredient being prepared. In having this air pocket, the santoku blade will not stick to the fruits, vegetables or deli meats you are slicing, chopping, dicing or cutting.
The Asian Sharpener Set is so handy to the santoku and other Asian blade users because it can safely and quickly sharpen your Asian blades which have a smaller blade angle than western style knives. This sharpener is perfectly built to sharpen and keep the blade of your Asian cutting tools at a pristine and perfect sharpness. With a rubberized bottom for maximum safety, this sharpener will not slide off the counter during use.
At the Wusthof headquarters in Soligen, Germany, the Wusthof family has been incorporating their ideas and traditional values of customer service and product quality since 1814. After hand buffing and polishing your blade, they also send it out to you with a lifetime warranty. Hand washing is recommended for the continued care of this santoku knife.
