Wüsthof Classic Ikon Series Knives
The forged line, Classic Ikon, features a sleek and sophisticated black handle with a distinctive, double bolster design for professional-style heft, exceptional balance and beauty. The handle is made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. The elegant shape of the handle is designed for a comfortable grip.
Family-owned for seven generations, Wüsthof was founded in Solingen, Germany, over 200 years ago. To this day, every Wüsthof knife is still expertly crafted in this legendary city. WÜSTHOF'S Precision Edge Technology, PEtec, offers superior blade sharpness and has set the new standard for modern cutlery. Conventionally hand-sharpened knives are plagued by irregularities that diminish the blade’s sharpness and overall performance. Through a proprietary process inclusive of computer-controlled robotics, WÜSTHOF'S PEtec yields a smoother, more refined edge with dramatically increased sharpness and sharpness retention along the entire length of the blade. The result is a knife with a definitive advantage for every home or professional chef.
