Ideal for anyone who needs only a few knives, wants truly beautiful and superior quality but doesn’t have the space for a lot of blades.
A versatile little blade, the Wüsthof Ikon Blackwood 3.5” Paring knife is an excellent choice for mincing shallots, onions and herbs, ideal at cutting and cleaning vegetables as well. The Ikon Blackwood 4.5” Utility Knife is also well-suited to handle detailed tasks, but can handle larger work more adeptly with its length. Perfect for peeling, paring, slicing, mincing and cleaning vegetables or fruit, it also excels with herbs or small cuts of meat. The Ikon Blackwood 6” Cook’s knife is ready to manage the medium and larger-sized chopping and cutting chores, performing well with nearly any kind of food. This compact triangular blade is equipped for confident use in chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing meats, fruit, vegetables, and herbs. The Kitchen Shears are the perfect assistant for random kitchen jobs, for example cutting fins or flowers, releasing foods from twine and packaging, and snipping fresh herbs. With a bone crusher built into the handle, it is ready to lend a hand with stubborn jar lids. The shears include a come-apart design for effortless disassembly and cleaning.
Representing the finest quality Wüsthof has to offer, each knife in the Ikon Blackwood series is forged beginning as a single piece of high-carbon stain-resistant steel. Every hand-honed edge is laser-tested to ensure unparalleled Wüsthof quality, resulting in considerably sharper blades with notably longer edge retention. The precision forged bolster makes the complete length of a blade accessible, allowing for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of a blade while slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping. Form and function harmonize in the weighted, double bolster, delivering a controlled handling experience as well as the ultimate in balance while cutting, slicing, chopping and mincing.
These specialized knives each complete with a full tang and triple-riveted construction for comfort and security. The shells of the ergonomic, contemporary handle are fitted seamlessly for enhanced hygiene and offer a striking, contemporary look. Crafted from rare and beautiful Grenadill wood (African Blackwood), the handle is finished with the renowned trident logo etched into each handle’s end with pride.
