Top customer reviews
I went into stores (both Sur La Table and Williams Sonoma) when I was upgrading my knives. I handled a lot of knives before making my choice to go with the Wusthof line. I then bought knives at both stores and on Amazon (who ever had best price for the piece I wanted).
My favorite of the Wusthof line is the Classic (not Ikon). It just fits my hand and I feel like I have the most control over those blades. That being said, from the reviews more people prefer the ergonomic handle on the Ikon - showing its just my personal opinion.
What made me go with this Ikon set is that unlike the Classic, the bolster does not run the full height of the blade. As the paring and chef's are my most used blades, they will need sharpening far more often and not needing to file down a bolster is a selling point.
Once I became accustomed to the handle on the chef (paring was never an issue) I was fine. I don't regret the purchase at all. I just recommend that because of the personal preference and fit of the user, you should always handle blades before buying them (especially if investing this much in an item you will have/use for many years to come.
Quality is excellent.
Fit and finish are great.
The handle is very comfortable.
As a set, they work together very well and can do 97% of things needed in the kitchen.
Come very sharp.
Very highly recommended. Buy-it-for-life type stuff.
If you enjoy cooking and your current knives cost less than $50, treat yourself. You'll understand why I brought them with me to my brothers house to cook.
