Product Description

Size:6 Inch  |  Color:Black

The Cooks knife is the workhorse knife in any kitchen. Designed for a the multiple tasks of chopping, dicing and mincing. 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.

Size: 8 InchColor: White
This knife is ridiculously nice. It has seen use 4x per week, 30 minutes at a time on average, for 6 months now, and I've still not had to sharpen it. A minute or so of swiping on the honing steel keeps the edge super sharp. I've not had experience with other high end knives, so upgrading to this bad boy was truly a breath of fresh air. Absolutely with knives, you have to pay for the best.

That said, I happened to hear W&S had the Ikon Creme line on sale and this knife was a steal at 59 bucks!!!! With the matching 3 1/2 inch paring and the honing steel, I was out the door with two high end workhorse knives and a steel for about 110 dollars.

I have used the Henckels International line and Wusthof's Grand Prix and Classic lines, and the Classic Ikon line is the best of the best in German knives.

I'm a cook and this is definitely my favorite knife. The only one I really use at work outside of the occasional boning knife job. The handle is very comfortable and the broad curve of the blade combined with the nice weight of the handle makes the cutting motion very fluid and easy on your wrist. I took a long time to decide which knife I would choose as my main chef knife and I'm very happy with my decision. 100% recommended.

Size: 6 InchColor: Black Verified Purchase
Out of all of my knives, this Wusthof Classic Ikon 6 inch Cook's Knife is my favorite. It slices tomatoes paper thin if needed. It's most optimal for tackling veggie prep. I choose it over all of my serrated knives to work on small melons, cantaloupes, grapefruit and even skinning and chunking up a pineapple. It slices cheese, cold cuts, sandwiches, cakes (including ice-cream cakes).
There is a notable difference between the regular Classic line and the Ikon Classic line that makes it worth the extra money, but I wouldn't chuck out all of my regular classics that are in excellent condition to replace them. Check them out in person and if you love them, start with a cook's knife.
The handle is a huge difference and feels comfortable and natural to grip. This would be a great knife for someone just learning how to cook or someone like myself that has a bit of shaky hands. The combination of its sharpness and easy grip handle will reduce slips--reducing cuts and injuries with daily or weekly maintenance on a steel, depending on how often the knife is used. The Classic Ikon knives are the only knives in my drawer I haven't cut or nicked myself with.
The other huge difference is in the bolster, so now the entire knife's edge can be used and sharpened. This is a wonderful, wonderful advantage.
I also have the Ikon 8 inch Cooks knife, yet I go to this smaller one. It gets the job done faster for what I need.

Size: 8 InchColor: White
I've had this knife for about a year now and it remains one of the best tools in my kitchen. I cook professionally and am used to having a wide selection of just-sharpened knives at my disposal, so anything less can be frustrating at home. This knife is comfortable, efficient, and really holds an edge. I love tabboule, which entails chopping a LOT of parsley very finely, and this knife makes short work of it. It feels great in the hand, looks great on my knife magnet, and works great on a wide variety of ingredients. I don't cook much meat so I can't really assess it in that regard, but it is incredibly versatile.

My other primary knife is a 6" Wusthof classic chef's knife, which is preferable for smaller jobs, like chopping a salad for one or two. However, if I only had one chef's knife, this 8" would be it. I have the creme handle, but only because it was slightly cheaper than the black. That said, it does look a little nicer in my kitchen and I have the coordinating ikon creme paring knife, but I don't plan to add to my collection in this color scheme. I generally prefer the black handles, and wonder if they are usually priced a little higher due to demand. Regardless of color, this is a GREAT knife and well worth the initial investment!

Size: 6 InchColor: Black
We have a Henckels, a Wusthoff Classic and a few decent inexpensive knives, but the Ikon chef knife rules! I second what others have said about the sharp and easy to maintain blade. I agree 100% with fine workmanship and quality--ours has held up well for 2+ years of heavy use. I have to really put even more emphasis on the fantastic shape of the handle, though. It looks gorgeous and feels even better in the hand. Next to this knife, all of our other good quality, functional knives seem clunky to both the eye and the hand. I wish I could justify replacing perfectly fine knives, because I'd go get Ikons in every size in a heartbeat!

I love this knife. :)

Before buying this knife (as a part of a set) I did a lot of research and had to educate myself about kitchen knives. The biggest decision was between German style knives (Wusthof/Henckel) vs Japanese style (Shun/Global/Mac). Let me make this decision easy for you: If you are planning to prepare more European style food buy the German knives. If you are planning to prepare more Asian style food buy Japanese knives. Think about it this way: The knives were designed to fit the food culture they were developed for and in. When you buy knives buy the ones that fit your food culture.
To sum the difference up in a quick and dirty way: Japanese knives tend to be sharper and less sturdy because they are more meant for slicing, while German knives tend to be less sharp but more sturdy, because they are also meant to do hacking from time to time.
Now about the Classic Ikon: This is not the type of knife you buy, because you are trying to achieve a good value for your dollar ratio. This is the type of knife you get if you just simply want one of the best German styled knives money can buy and that is also pretty much what you get. This knife feels solid and as if it will last a long time. The handle feels great in the hand and the knife is well balanced. The bolster does not reach down all the way to the blade, which helps when the knife needs to be sharpened. Yes these knives are very sharp (for a German styled knife that is) and something in their design reminds me of a razor. Regarding looks they appear rather elegant and will complement your kitchen nicely. All in all this is a great knife if you can afford it and are willing to pay for it. I myself am very happy with my purchase and planning to keep these knives at least for the next 20 years.
