    Wusthof Classic Knife Blades

    The Wusthof Classic Knife blade with the straight edge
    The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit.

    The Wusthof  Classic Knife blade with the serrated edge
    The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.

    The Wusthof  Classic Knife blade with the hollow edge
    When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices.

    I Want Another One! Review by

    I should have purchased this knife 20 years ago. I would have saved me much frustration in the kitchen. I highly recommend this item. (Posted on 4/25/16)


    A Must Have!!! Review by

    Out of all of my knives, this Wusthof Classic Ikon 6 inch Cook's Knife is my favorite. It slices tomatoes paper thin if needed. It's most optimal for tackling veggie prep. I choose it over all of my serrated knives to work on small melons, cantaloupes, grapefruit and even skinning and chunking up a pineapple. It slices cheese, cold cuts, sandwiches, cakes (including ice-cream cakes).
    There is a notable difference between the regular Classic line and the Ikon Classic line that makes it worth the extra money, but I wouldn't chuck out all of my regular classics that are in excellent condition to replace them. Check them out in person and if you love them, start with a cook's knife.
    The handle is a huge difference and feels comfortable and natural to grip. This would be a great knife for someone just learning how to cook or someone like myself that has a bit of shaky hands. The combination of its sharpness and easy grip handle will reduce slips--reducing cuts and injuries with daily or weekly maintenance on a steel, depending on how often the knife is used. The Classic Ikon knives are the only knives in my drawer I haven't cut or nicked myself with.
    The other huge difference is in the bolster, so now the entire knife's edge can be used and sharpened. This is a wonderful, wonderful advantage.
    I also have the Ikon 8 inch Cooks knife, yet I go to this smaller one. It gets the job done faster for what I need. (Posted on 4/25/16)
