There are but a few knives that every kitchen must have and the Wusthof Classic Ikon Bread Knife is one of them. Fine edge blades are great for slicing and dicing, but the serrated edge of the Wusthof Classic Ikon Bread Knife is perfect for cleanly slicing bread and other delicate foods without waste. The incredibly sharp, serrated edge allows for an easy cut through food like a traditional roast, crispy bread, and even tomatoes. The new Wusthof Ikon design offers improved ergonomics and balance, so Wusthof Classic Ikon Bread Knife will be one of the most-used blades in your arsenal. The forged steel blade works well for large and small tasks alike but is also small enough to place on the table with a bread board. Limited Lifetime Guarantee.
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.
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.
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 = Chromium for stain-resistance 15 = Contents of chromium (15%)
