Wusthof Ikon Blackwood 12-Piece Knife Block Set

Featuring our exclusive handles crafted from African blackwood, this collection combines superb German craftsmanship and striking design. A razor-sharp full-tang blade runs the entire length of each knife for stability. Steel double bolsters add an attractive finishing detail. Each knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Full tangs are triple riveted to the handles for exceptional durability and control. Each knife has a recessed bolster that facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the cutting edge; a heel bolster provides added balance. Comfortable contoured handles are cut from dense African blackwood and hand polished. Included care kit contains mineral oil for maintaining the silken finish of the handles. Coordinating walnut block safely stores 15 items and is gentle on knives' edges. A Williams Sonoma exclusive. 12-Piece Set includes: 3 1/2" paring knife. 5" santoku. 8" hollow-ground carving knife. 8" chef's knife. 8" bread knife. Four 4 1/2" steak knives. 10" honing steel. Stainless-steel pull-apart shears. 15-slot walnut storage block. Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.

Handles crack
March 7, 2014
We replaced the kitchen after a fire and wanted the best. Fit, feel, look great. All the handles cracked within 5 years. I will bring them in for warrantee, but do I want to see if Williams Sonoma is in business every 5 years and scare up my receipt? Wood handles probably better. It's just the two of us, no kids abusing it or anything.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Store, Size, Shape
Cons: Quality
