Wusthof Classic Ikon Hollow-Ground Santoku Knife

Combining German craftsmanship and traditional Japanese styling, this santoku is deftly proportioned for precision tasks like mincing and paper-thin slicing. The high-carbon-steel blade has shallow oval-shaped depressions to keep foods from adhering to it. Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Blade has hollow-ground depressions to reduce friction and minimize sticking. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) gives each straight-edged knife an extraordinarily sharp blade that retains its edge 30% longer. 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.

Sharpest Knife in the Drawer
April 7, 2013
My wife gave me this knife several Christmases ago. It was in a "block set" and I had never used a Santoku before; so it lived in the block unnoticed for several years. One Saturday I decided to play the "get to know your knives" game, and never got passed this knife. My "past favorite" veg. slicing knife was a 14 CM Chef, but due to the "rocking chair" curve of the blade, you had to go through a full motion in order to cut through that last green onion on the near side of your gathered bunch. This resulted in a very exaggerated arc of the knife heel. The Santoku has a straiter cutting edge that allows to cut all the way across the bunch of onions with very little movement of the heel and you still have enough blade width to rest your knuckles against. Love it!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight, beautiful

A Gift Appreciated
December 26, 2012
I purchased the Classic Ikon 7-inch with monogram for my son because he's the "sous-chef" in his home kitchen. He tells me the knife has a comfortable handle and is nicely balanced overall. He likes the food-release characteristics of the santoku blade. He says he uses the knife often.
Pros: Balance, Shape, sharp

Well Designed

This knife is well-balanced with a great grip, making it easy to chop multiple veggies without getting fatigued. As a bonus, it looks great in my knife block with the sculpted handle.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Size, Strength, Sharpness, Weight
