Product Description

The Classic Ikon 16-piece block set includes 3-1/2-inch parer, 4-1/2-inch utility, 6qty 4-1/2-inch steak knives,5-inch serrated utility,6-inch sandwich knife,8-inch carving knife, 8-inch bread knife, 8-inch cooks knife, 10-inch steel, kitchen shears and a 17 slot storage block, Wusthof Classic Ikon is a culmination of all the best features of each of the Wusthof knife lines. The combined riveted handle design is combined with a contoured shape to add comfort and control. The Classic Ikon adds a rear bolster that acts as a counter balance when using the knife. This second bolster adds significant blade control. Classic Ikon has a unique forward bolster as well. The forward partial bolster is designed so you can sharpen the complete length of the blade. This bolster is also curvered inwards to allow your fingers greater control while holding the knife by the blade. Located in The Cutlery Capital of the World, Solingen Germany, the Wusthof factory history goes back as far as 1814 when the company was listed with the Duchy of Berg. To this day, the company remains family owned. Throughout it’s history, Wusthof has focused almost solely on the manufacturing of forged knives for the professional chef and home cooking enthusiast. Wusthof uses a special blend of German steel through out the whole length of the knife. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet still be able to be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance. Our unique compound angle is not seen in many knives. This angle tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to allow for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge while it also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength as well as flexibility.

Once you get high quality like this, you are on a new realm of knives.

Most of my meals are home cooked, these get used every day, and they look as good today as they did when I bought them, over 4 years ago.

PS - Wusthof told me to contact customer service because they think I got a "defective set".

Ok, I am so impressed with Wusthof quality, I am shocked.

To start with, I'm no great chef or anything, but I do enjoy being in a kitchen and cooking for our family. Also, as a bit of background My wife and I recevied a set of Chicago Cutlery for our wedding more than 30 years ago. I felt we had one heck of a good set of knives. Recently though Wusthof knives caught my eye. As I began to research and learn about them, I started to feel they might be a good choice. In my researching the various styles, I became very interested in the IKON knives with Black Wood handles. As I compared price, I just couldn't see spending the difference between them and the plastic handle version. After receiving Class IKon with plastic handles, I'm totally happy with not splurging.
When the knives arrived, I had to compare them to the Chicago set. One quick slice on a piece of paper blew me away. I couldn't believe a knife could cut so effortlessly. I still can't belive I have used the other knives so long thinking there wasn't anything better.
During my shopping I read several comments by professionals suggesting to not purchase a pre-packaged set. As I started looking at individual knives I found it difficult to get 6 steak knives. This set had the steak knives and as I looked at individual knives, I felt the set had what we needed. I did add the Hollow edge Santoku knife to our set. The block has two extra slots and accomodated it just fine. Another concern I had was going from a 10 inch chef's knife to an 8 inch, I'm very happy with the shorter knife. It seems to be easier to control and use.
In all, I am extremely happy to have come out of the stone age and into a new sharper era. :-)

I am elated with the beautiful set of Classic Ikon knives. They have a great feel in your hand, with a nice weight, and they cut through things "like they are butter." Peeling potatoes is so smooth. Cutting through meat, even when raw, is like slicing warm butter. I love my new knives!!! I had been trying to justify buying them for some time now….it is a bit of an investment. Now that I have them, I definitely waited too long to make the move. But they are mine now! Completely satisfied!
