Wusthof IKON Studio Block Set: A Compact Knife Block Set with Four (4) Essential Kitchen Instruments
A great entry into the IKON line of exotic blackwood-handled cutlery, the Wusthof IKON Studio Block Set includes 4 essential tools for everyday home cooking and food prep tasks, all housed in a compact knife block made from choice walnut. This Wusthof knife block set includes a small chef knife, 2 sizes of paring knives, and a pair of stainless-steel kitchen shears*. At only 6" x 3", the 9895 is ideal for those with limited counter space but still want a versatile set of kitchen knives. This set includes cutlery for peeling/slicing apples for apple dumplings, cutting up celery and chopping carrots for soup, shredding chicken for barbecue, and many other uses.
Each of the included Wusthof IKON knives begins life as a single piece of carbon steel which is forged into a full-tang knife with a balanced weight and ergonomic feel. The blades are tempered and sharpened many times before the tangs are inset with handles of gorgeous 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.
