General Information

The Peeling knife is one of the most widely used tools in the kitchen. Its versitily of uses is a mainstay in any kitchen a quality parer like the Classic Ikon is a real pleasure for your small cutting needs. Wusthof Classic Ikon is 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, Wusthof 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: Sharp, balanced, thin tip.
Cons: Slightly pricy
I've had this little knife over a year now and I use it a LOT.  It is probably the third most used knife in my kitchen (After my chef's knife and bread knife).  It arrived pretty sharp (at least by my standards) thanks to Wusthof's new(ish) PTEC process.  I beleive this process gives the blade a more 'Japanese' bevel angle of around 15 degrees a side.  It is also nice and thin behind the tip.  I believe the tip on a paring knife is more important than on any other type of knife.  This allows it to fly through food with minimum effort.

It has kept it's edge amazingly well with just the occasional touch up on a steel.  Presumably this is because it is never really used on a board or to chop anything hard.  Fit and finish is up to Wusthof's usual standards and it feels nicely balanced in the hand. The reduced bolster also facilitates sharpening the full length of the blade - which is important on a paring knife where you don't have much blade to start with!

All in all - highly recomended.
