  • The Wüsthof Classic Ikon 6" utility knife features a narrow blade and is used to bridge the gap between a chef's knife and paring knife. Often, a chef's knife is simply too big and cumbersome for select slicing tasks, whereas a paring knife with its limited length is too short. The utility knife is excellent for slicing peppers, cutting apples into wedges, slicing cantaloupes, and even carving smaller birds and slices of meat. Although not suited for chopping because of the lack of knuckle clearance, the utility knife will perform most fine slicing tasks remarkably well. Try using it in a draw-slicing motion, keeping the tip on the cutting board while drawing the knife towards you. With its thin, low-drag blade, the food will generally stay on the board after a precise cut from this knife. 

    CLASSIC IKON knives feature a distinctive, double bolster design for professional-style heft, exceptional balance and beauty. The handle is made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. The elegant shape of the handle is designed for a comfortable grip.

    Product Highlights:

    • Precision-forged from a single blank of high carbon stainless steel
    • Full tang that is triple riveted to the handle for precise control
    • Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) yields a blade that is 20% sharper with twice the edge retention.
    • The half bolster allows for the knife to be honed and sharpened the entire length of the blade and the heel bolster provides added balance
    • Contoured handle for comfortable fit and a more contemporary appearance
