Forged from a single piece of specially tempered, high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood 4.5" Steak knife is perfect for a classic steak dinner, but it is also great with filet mignon, ribs, pork or veal chops, and roasts. It is versatile enough for both difficult and delicate meats.
After utilizing their new Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) to form the blade, Wusthof then hand-hones and laser tests each edge to ensure quality, resulting in a blade that is 30% sharper the most other knives and holds blade precision much better as well. The Wusthof Ikon line is a combination of the best features from all of Wusthof's lines. The weighted, double bolster provides ultimate balance and cutting control while still creating an impressively elegant appearance. The precision forward bolster provides access to the complete length of the blade for effortless sharpening of the entire blade, as well as utilization of the full edge while cutting and slicing. Wusthof knives are a work of art and innovation that comes complete with a contoured handle, full tang and triple-riveting, offering comfort as well as providing permanent security.
The handle is skillfully assembled from the finest Grenadill (African Blackwood). The stability of the extremely dense, hard Grenadill wood results in far less expansion and contraction than other woods. The farming of this rare, remarkable wood is governed by the local authorities to maintain sustainable harvest practices. A work of art such as this would be incomplete without the artist s signature: Wüsthof s classic trident logo is proudly etched into the end as a proud witness to its quality and innovation. For cleaning your Wusthof knives with PEtec black technology and African Blackwood handles, hand wash only.
The Wusthof Ikon Blackwood steak knives are made in Solingen, Germany and come with a lifetime guarantee.
