The Wusthof IKON 8" Chef Knife is made from a special steel alloy for a low-maintenance, all-purpose blade that is strong, flexible, and extremely sharp. This chef's knife (also known as a cook's knife) is designed for maximum versatility—at just under 8 inches in length, the Wusthof 4996 is capable of tackling many common cooking and baking prep tasks: slicing up cuts of meat, dicing and chopping vegetables for soup, cutting and peeling fruits and melons, and mincing fresh herbs to top off your spice cabinet. The 4996/20's medium length falls within the range of what many consider to be the most versatile of all chef knife sizes.
Each in the Wustof IKON cutlery line starts out as a single piece of carbon steel which is forged into a full-tang knife with a balanced weight and ergonomic feel. The blade is tempered and sharpened many times before the tang is inset with a handle of pure, choice African blackwood. This exotic hardwood is, according to Wusthof, technically and aesthetically superior to ebony wood in every way, providing a comfortable feel in the hand that won't vary with humidity levels and temperature.
