Wusthof knives are known for their professional quality. The Wusthof Ikon collection offers cutlery and tools with beautiful African blackwood handles, along with extra details to enhance balance, strength, and durability.

The Wusthof Ikon collection features forged X50CrMoV15 steel blades sharpened with Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) for superior blade sharpness and edge retention. This high-carbon stainless steel includes vanadium for durability and wear resistance, and molybdenum for hardness and corrosion resistance.

Another highlight of the Wusthof Ikon collection is the double bolster. The half bolster in the middle of each knife allows you to sharpen the entire length of the blade, and the heel bolster helps balance the weight of the knife. Full tang construction offers additional balance and strength while cutting.

Wusthof Ikon collection triple-riveted knife handles are made from Grenadill wood, or African Blackwood -- a dense, heavy wood with a distinctive grain. Handles are contoured for a comfortable grip and contemporary look.
