Wusthof Ikon Chefs Knives

Wusthof Ikon Chefs Knives

When it comes to this sites’ area of interest, it doesn’t really get any better than getting your hands on a new Wusthof Knife, so it gives me great pleasure to talk about the new Wusthof Ikon series here.

Wusthof are a renowned German knife forger and manufacturer that have been operating for…well, a long time. Whilst they are well known for making very, very high quality kitchen knives with blades so sharp you wonder if you should be shaving with them, they do not always have the best reputation when it comes to design. This is not to say, of course, that their knives are badly designed and styled, it just means that they do not look as well considered as other knife forgers - perhaps favoring utility over aesthetics.

Well, with the Ikon Series that has all changed - these knives are simply beautiful to look at and to hold.

Not only are they very visually pleasing and a pleasure to hold, they are extremely sharp and durable, meaning they will serve you for years to come; if not decades.

These knives are perfectly balanced, exceedingly sharp and extremely well built, and will make an impact on any kitchen knife collection.

You can see the Wusthof Ikon Classic chef’s knife over here on Amazon, who offer the best prices in town.
