Forged from a singular piece of specially tempered, high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood Fillet knife is narrow and super flexible to perfectly mold with the shape of any fish. With it you will effortlessly remove the skin, bones, and guts of the fish. It works best with panfish such as sunfish, perch, bluegills, golden shiners, crappies, and rock bass. Additionally, handles well with other delicate foods such as chicken, fruits, and vegetables.
Each hand-honed cutting edge is laser tested, producing an edge that is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than other knives. As part of the distinguished Ikon series, this knife is a culmination of the finest features of all the other Wusthof lines. Form and function unite in harmony as the weighted, double bolster leaves a lasting impression of ultimate balance and cutting control with a strikingly elegant appearance.
The precision forward bolster grants access to the complete length of the blade, which allows for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade while filleting and cleaning fish. Crafted from the finest African Blackwood, the contoured, ergonomically-designed handle, complete with full tang and triple-riveting, allows for comfort in addition to permanent security. With its extraordinary density and high resin content, African Blackwood offers significantly reduced contraction & expansion over other types of wood as well as gorgeous deep purple to brownish black hues. Only small harvests are permitted of this rare wood, as local government protects its environmental sustainability. For the best care of your Wusthof Ikon Blackwood fillet knife should be hand washed only.
