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 Solingen, 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

Each Wusthof knife is precision forged from a single piece of chrome-molybdenum-vanadium steel. This specialized high carbon, stain-resistant alloy ensures that the critical characteristics of each Wusthof knife are right there from the beginning: razor sharp, long-lasting cutting edge that is both highly stain resistant and easily restorable (able to be sharpened). This formula is imprinted on each forged blade is the following world-renowned Wusthof steel formula: X50 CrMoV15
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%)
