Wusthof 4187-7/17 Classic Ikon 7" Hollow Edge Nakiri Knife

If you spend a large portion of your day sorting and chopping vegetables for various dishes, then this is the perfect knife for you. This special blade makes quick work out of nearly every vegetable or fruit that you can think of while providing a flawless cut each and every time, the addition of the "hollow" edge depressions prevent foods from sticking to the knife meaning you'll have to touch the blade less, increasing your rate of speed. A traditional Japanese vegetable cleaver, the Wusthof Classic Ikon Hollow Edge Nakiri is primarily designed to effortlessly slice, dice and julienne vegetables, and can also be used to cleanly cut the thinnest slices of fruit, fish and meat. Featuring a wide blade with a distinctive, rectangular shape, the Wusthof Classic Ikon 7" Nakiri Knife is designed for cutting with a forward thrust action, rather than a the traditional rocking or horizontal pull and push movement used with rounded blade knives, such as European-style cook or chef knives. The blade of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Nakiri Knife is much thinner when compared to other knives in the Classic Ikon collection, facilitating precision cutting. Additionally, the cutting edge is angled on both sides, which makes it easier to cut straight slices. The Wusthof Classic Ikon Nakiri Knife with Hollow Ground Edge is distinguished by a row of beveled ovals at the edge of the blade. This design creates air pockets to eliminate drag when cutting sticky foods that tend to adhere to the side of the blade, such as raw potatoes, fish and meat. Laser cut to perfection from a single piece of steel, the Wusthof Gourmet knife is lighter than the Classic series. The blades are stamped rather than forged, using the same high carbon no-stain steel as in the precision forged lines. Made in Solingen, Germany since 1814. Lifetime warranty for materials and/or craftsmanship. Dishwasher safe (but not recommended).  Wusthof item number: 4187-7/17    

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.

Each Wusthof knife is cut from a single piece of chrom-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 resistance 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%)
