Product Description

Designed in the U.S. by some of the best fishing experts in the country. The Wusthof Classic Ikon 7inch fillet will easily clean and bone your favorite catch. The fillet knife comes with a leather sheath so it can be used on the lake as well as the kitchen. 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. A considerable number of separate manufacturing steps are required to complete each precision forged knife. Each step is performed to exacting standards by skilled German workers aided by the most modern, computer guided equipment. Some of our precise steps are done robotically and utilize the same machinery that are used to produce very well known Swiss Watches. It is this balance of German technology and old world hand craftsmanship that is the secret of how each Wusthof knife is created. Known the world-over for it’s unique and uncompromising quality, 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.

Good feel and flexible blade. razor sharp and holds an edge.
Richard Arkwright
That seems to keep a great edge (We will see how well it takes an edge when it come time).

I just can not say enough about Wusthof as a quality knife maker, and this fillet knife is no exception. It has good balance. Fits very well in my extra large hands. It came sharp. The blade has a good balance between its stiffness and flex, due to the shape of the spline. I have cleaned 10 salmon with it. I did not have to sharpen it, and it was still incredibly sharp when I got finished. Time will tell how often I have to sharpen it. They do have a reputation for keeping an edge. Due to the steel they use to forge (yes this is a forged knife) their higher end knifes. They boast that their steel will not stain, we will let time be the judge on that one. But I would venture to guess that anyone who pays the price for this knife will take very good care of it.

My knife has the formula "X 50 Cr Mo 15" etched into its blade, signifying that each is made with 0.5% carbon, 15% chromium and unspecified but smaller amounts of molybdenum and vanadium. X50CrMoV15 is the German DIN standard name of the alloy. I believe that there is a 40 step manufacturing process for each knife.

Take the whole as a package and you get a top notch leather sheath, an incredible knife, that is at home in the field or kitchen. That seems to keep a great edge (We will see how well it takes an edge when it come time). for $140 bucks. I think it was worth it, if it continues to perform.

UPDATE: The knife came sharp, but after cleaning a few fish I decided to "touch up the blade" I put it on my Japanese wet stones, and put a wicked edge on the knife. Wow what a difference. This thing is like a dream now. The more I use this knife the better I like it.

I had purchased a Wusthof fillet knife last year and really liked the model. It was very sharp out of the box and did an excellent job. I noticed the "classic" and debated purchasing another expensive fillet knife but curiosity finally won over and I ordered this knife. I did not think the knife would be much different from the original purchase, but there was a noticeable improvement in quality with this knife. Very sharp out of the box, a little better sheathe and the handle was more comfortable. Either knife is a winner but this Classic is a bit more quality laden the original.

This is a very well made knife. Good feel and flexible blade. razor sharp and holds an edge.

Ive owned at least a dozen fillet knives and this is by far the best.

O.k., I haven't filleted anything, yet. I have owned several fillet knives in the fifty dollar range. I am also a knife collector, so I know enough to be dangerous. This knife, by far is, is the finest kitchen or fishing knife I have ever handled. It feels great in your hand and the steel is extremely fine. Thump the blade with your finger and it sings. I'll come back after I actually use it.
