Wusthof Classic Ikon 5" Boning Knife

One of the five crucial blades in any cutlery collection, the Wusthof Classic Ikon Boning Knife provides the critical features needed to cleanly remove meat from bones. Boasting a 5 inch tapered, pointed blade from tip to bolster, the Wusthof Classic Ikon Five Inch Boning Knife allows you to accurately place the tip into a chicken or other meat and get right to the target area. The nimble blade glides along the bone or other waste pieces (fat, skin, etc.) as if it knows what to do without you and reduces the amount of good meat lost when using the wrong kind of blade. The Wusthof Classic Ikon Boning Knife's design offers improved ergonomics and handling over more traditional forged knives and is also frequently used as a fillet knife in lieu of owning two separate blades. Lifetime Wusthof Guarantee. Wusthof Item number 4616.

Wusthof Classic Ikon Series Features

Wusthof spent years developing a new design to improve upon their world-favorite Classic family of knives and eventually created the Classic Ikon family. Every Wusthof Classic Ikon knife is still forged from one piece of specially tempered high carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength, balance and heft. The changes Wusthof made include moving some of the metal in the bolster to the heel of the handle to improve balance and ergonomics. This also allows the entire edge of the blade to be sharpened. The Classic Ikon black handles are now also ergonomic and still made of synthetic material triple riveted to the full tang for a seamless and hygienic fit. Not only comfortable to hold, but the skillfully honed by hand blades are also incredibly sharp, and are easily resharpened. Made in Germany, Lifetime Guarantee.

Why Choose a Forged Steel Knife?

Wusthof forged knives start with quality steel that undergoes extreme heat and hand molding to enhance the flexibility, density, and hardness of the blade. Forged knives are hand crafted and offer greater strength and durability as well as better balance, a heavier feel and lasting sharpness compared to stamped cutlery. The tang of a forged knife always extends into the handle to improve the balance and ergonomics.

About Wusthof Forged Knives

X = Stainless Steel
Mo = Molybdenum
50 = 0.5% carbon - significant for sharpness
V = Vanadium for hardness and edge retention
Cr = Cromium for stain-resistance
15 = Contents of chromium (15%)
