Wusthof Classic Ikon 5" Tomato Knife

Wusthof's serrated tomato knife slices easily through tomato skins and works equally well for cutting citrus fruits and cheeses. Made according to the highest standards of German craftsmanship, the hand-honed blade is triple riveted to the high-impact handle. Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Serrated blade effortlessly cuts through tough skins and rinds and features a two-pronged tip for lifting slices of food. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control. A recessed bolster facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the cutting edge; a heel bolster provides added balance. Sleek contoured handle is made of smooth polypropylene.

More useful than I thought

I ordered this on a whim. I find myself using it a lot, tomatoes and other things as well.
First, it's primary purpose is cutting tomatoes. Even the sharpest chef knife feels inferior to this knife. I was shocked how easily it cut through with zero compression of the tomato.
I also use this to cut other soft veggies, fruits and berries. Definitely the third most used knife after my chef and carving knives.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Size, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
