Cut everything from bagels to tomatos with the Classic Ikon 5-inch serrated Utility. The serrated blade cuts easily through tomatos and the small size makes cutting Bagels a pleasure. Wusthof Classic Ikon Creme is 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.

I bought several Wusthof knives. The Classic 5.5-inch Sandwich Knife, Wusthof Gourmet 4-Piece Steak Knife Set and Wusthof 4152 Classic 9-inch Double Serrated Bread Knife bread knife, Wusthof Classic Ikon 5-Inch Serrated Utility Knife and the Wusthof Classic Nakiri Vegetable Knife with Hollow Edge along with the Wusthof 17 Slot Walnut Storage Block. I like the cool metallic scraping sound sound the knives make as I either insert or pull them out of the storage block. The grocery store utility knife I have just makes a dull thunk.
