  • The cooks knife is the workhorse knife in any kitchen. Designed for a the multiple tasks of chopping, dicing and mincing. Wusthof Classic ikon is a culmination of all the best features of each of the wusthof knife lines. The combined riveted handle design is combined with a contoured shape to add comfort and control. The Classic ikon adds a rear bolster that acts as a counter balance when using the knife. This second bolster adds significant blade control. Classic ikon has a unique forward bolster as well. The forward partial bolster is designed so you can sharpen the complete length of the blade. This bolster is also curvered inwards to allow your fingers greater control while holding the knife by the blade. Located in the cutlery capital of the world, Solingen Germany, the wusthof factory history goes back as far as 1814 when the company was listed with the duchy of berg. To this day, the company remains family owned. Throughout it’s history, wüsthof has focused almost solely on the manufacturing of forged knives for the professional chef and home cooking enthusiast. Wusthof uses a special blend of German steel through out the whole length of the knife. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet still be able to be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance. Our unique compound angle is not seen in many knives. This angle tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to allow for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge while it also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength as well as flexibility.

    Pros - clean lines and great handling
    I have been a Sabatier user for most of my life as a chef but last year gave this knife a go .I am hooked it glides over tomatoes meats all types of produce with effortless ease and a swift wipe with the steel keeps it razor sharp.Light flexible and strong.Love the handle as I do not like the feel of plastic or steel handles the african hard wood is sublime.I have since bought the carving knife and it has the same brilliant action.

    I have since given my Sabatiers to my son now training to be a chef too.

    But my Icons are mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Such a great knife set. I love my Wusthof Ikons!!! I add more and more to my set but I seem to favor my six inch cooks knife most of all. It seems to be just the right size for most cooking jobs, I only seem to need my bigger knives for large cuts of meat or tough veggies like yams or squash. Hard to go wrong with the Ikon.

    i have had this knife for around a year and i love it also,especially the way the handle is shaped. but my blade seems so have worn down at the heel, just by using a steel, which ive never had happen before.still, a knife i enjoy
