Consisting of a 3” Flat Cut Paring Knife (4984) and a 4.5” Paring Knife (4986/12), the Wusthof Ikon 2 Piece Paring Knife Set offers two essential kitchen knives for detailed and meticulous work.
In addition to excellent peeling, mincing and dicing, the straight edge of the Wusthof Ikon 3” Flat Cut Parer offers close control for the most intricate decorating work. The Wusthof Ikon 4.5” Paring Knife is the most versatile of all paring knives. Use this utility blade for mincing shallots, onions and herbs as well as cleaning and cutting vegetables. The 4.5” size makes it suitable for small cuts of meat as well.
Each Wusthof Ikon blade is forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, hand honed and laser tested to verify unsurpassed sharpness, lasting blade precision and easier maintenance.
The Wusthof’s Ikon series combines the best features of all Wusthof's lines. Form and function harmonize in the weighted, double bolster that delivers ultimate cutting control and balance in a strikingly elegant appearance. The precision-forged bolster makes the complete length of the blade accessible, which allows for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade in mincing, dicing and precision cutting. The contoured, ergonomic handle provides comfort as well as permanent security with a full tang and triple-rivet construction.
Displaying the classic Wusthof logo etched into the heel, the handle is crafted from extremely dense, high resin content Grenadill, also known as African Blackwood. Appreciated for its deep tones that range from dark purple to brownish black, Grenadill ranks among the hardest and most dense wood in the world, offering significantly reduced contraction & expansion over other types of wood. Only small harvests are permitted of this fine, rare wood, and local government protects its environmental sustainability. Hand wash these knives only.
The knives of the Wusthof Ikon 2 Piece Paring Set are made in Solingen, Germany and carry a lifetime guarantee.
