    Wusthof Classic Ikon Knife Blades

    The Wusthof Classic Ikon 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 Ikon 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 Ikon 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.
