The blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Utility knife is forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel. This blade is longer than a paring knife but narrower than a chef's knife, allowing it to be a highly versatile kitchen staple. The size and pointed tip make it useful for small and detailed tasks, yet still making it long enough for larger work. It is perfect for paring, peeling, slicing, mincing, and cleaning vegetables or fruit. Additionally, it can even help with herbs and smaller cuts of meat.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon 4.5" Utility Knife endures laser testing which 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 ultimate 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. A contoured, ergonomically designed handle complete with a full tang and triple-riveting 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.
Each Wusthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
