Ideal for precision tasks like mincing and paper-thin slicing, this santoku combines classic German craftsmanship and traditional Japanese styling. Oval-shaped hollows on the blade allow the knife to glide through foods without sticking. To keep your knife in top condition, we've included a Wusthof sharpener, specially designed for use on Asian-style blades. Set includes Wusthof Classic Ikon santoku knife with free Wusthof Asian Edge knife sharpener. 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) 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. Sharpener is designed for the special angle of Asian knife blades and offers two-stage manual sharpening: a coarse ceramic slot to set a sharp edge, along with a fine ceramic slot to hone the edge. Easy-grip handle and nonslip rubber feet ensure stability. Knife: 7"-long blade; 5"-long handle; 6.5 oz.; made in Germany. Sharpener: 8" x 1 3/4"; 3 1/3" high; 9 oz.; made in China.
