Score: 5.00 (votes: 1)

The Wusthof Classic IKON Chef's Knife, 16 cm (6.3"), is a great all-around small kitchen knife for home or professional use. This shape is the most essential of all knives used in the kitchen. 6-inch length is great for someone who prepares mostly smaller items or who just feels more comfortable with a smaller knife but still wants that traditional European chef's knife shape. Precision forged from a single blank of steel with full tang. Features the popular new blade style without bolster, for ease of sharpening, full-blade length performance, and lighter weight.

Most any kitchen cutting, slicing and chopping is easily accomplished with this perfectly balanced tool featuring a comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge. German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use.

    Sadly for me, my darling wife started being infected by my passion for cooking about 2 years ago - which means I don't get to cook quite as often as I used to... (Mind you, she's great in the kitchen! Seeing how the larger and heavier 8 inch "standard German" knife fit in her hands, and the slight discomfort she had in using such a blade, I suggested that we purchase a smaller 6" chef's knife.

    The Wüsthof IKON line has unusual features for a German-made knife: rounded ergonomic handle, a blade that's a cross between German and Japanese... This seemed like an excellent choice for my wife's smaller hands.

    After using this knife for two weeks, all we can say is "wow!". Having a thinner and exceedingly sharp blade, the knife is excellent for precision slicing and dicing work. The curve of the belly makes a curved chopping motion very comfortable. The IKNO knife line has a very small "half-bolster", making it very easy and comfortable to use a solid pinch-hold on taller blade knives (Chef, Santoku, etc.).

    The balance of this knife is a bit handle-heavy, but I don't find this to be an issue at all.

    This is my first Wüsthof (well, I purchased three other Wüsthof knifes at the same time), and will definitely consider other Wüsthof IKON knifes in the future.
