8 items left

This Wusthof Classic IKON version of the best-selling Santoku chef's knife style is a real beauty. It's a great all-around kitchen knife for home or professional use. This style of knife has all but replaced the old French/German style chef's knife, with it's slightly shorter length and easy to use and high performance blade and edge 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.

The handle is super-comfortable and made of the same excellent material that the Classic line is made of so it's comfortable and offers good grip even when wet, and it's polished so it looks beautiful and natural at the same time. The metal cap and overall shape also lends true elegance to the shape, and it's incredibly comfortable, no matter what kind of grip you prefer to use (pro-style "pinch grip" or standard grip on the handle). The granton (dimple) edge helps reduce friction to allow you to more easily get paper-thin slices. 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. If you only own one good knife, this is a great choice!

German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use.

Most Useful Tool in the Box

I never used a Santoku knife before this Wusthof I ordered from Paul (probably 4 years ago now) and was using primarily the Wusthof 9" Chef's knife. I spend a Lot of time in the kitchen and the Chef's knife only comes out on occasion these days. With regular steel-ing (I think that's a word), the Santoku knife is as sharp as the day it arrived and handles the vast majority of jobs extremely well. The balance and quality of the steel are exceptional and the Santoku style knife has been a gift to work with.
