A well-chosen selection of essential kitchen knives of the finest quality, the Wüsthof Classic Ikon 7 piece Block Set houses 4 knives, a pair of kitchen shears and a sharpening steel within an attractive wood block. This set includes a 3.5" Paring Knife (4086), a 6" Utility Knife (4506), a 8" Bread Knife (4166), a 8" Cook's Knife (4596), a 9" Steel (4461), Kitchen Shears (5558) and a 13-Slot Block (2263).
The 3.5” Paring knife is ideal for mincing shallots, onions and herbs as well as cleaning and cutting vegetables. The 6” Utility knife proves itself as an indispensable kitchen staple, small enough to peel but large enough for slicing larger cuts of meat, fruits and vegetables. With its super sharp, serrated edge, the 8” Bread knife excels with fresh, crusty breads, thick-skinned fruits and vegetables, and even cake. As one of the most essential and versatile knives, the 8” Cook’s knife is the ideal choice for cutting, slicing, mincing and dicing virtually any kind of food. The Kitchen Shears assist with a wide range of kitchen tasks, such as cutting fins or flowers, releasing foods from twine and packaging, and snipping fresh herbs, and offer easy cleaning with their come-apart design. Finally, a 9-inch steel is included to keep all your new blades as sharp as they can be. Stored within the wooden block, this stylish set provides an eye-pleasing accent to your kitchen as well.
The blades that comprise the Wüsthof Classic Ikon 7 piece Block Set are each forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, using Wüsthof’s Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) to provide an extraordinarily sharp edge that endures longer and is easier to maintain than most knives. Each blade is hand-honed and laser-tested to ensure it meets Wüsthof’s standards for quality. The tapered shape of the bolster allows access to the complete length of the blade for easy sharpening. With the forward bolster adding heft, the distinctive rear bolster works with it to provide perfect balance and cutting control within a handsome, contemporary appearance.
With a full tang and triple-riveting, the contoured handle provides comfort within its secure construction and modern aesthetic. Crafted from synthetic, durable polypropylene, the handle features the classic Wüsthof logo etched into the end as signature to its pure quality.
Each Knife in the Wüsthof Classic Ikon 7 piece block set is produced in Solingen, Germany and carries a lifetime guarantee.
