Wusthof Ikon Knives - the blade
The edges are hand honed twice by craftsmen, and the manufacturing process is completed with a final laser controlled checking and finishing stage.
The finger guard/bolster is gently curved for comfort, its' modern design features a shortened bolster, which makes it easier to sharpen the full length of the blade, right up to the heel.
Wusthof Ikon Knives - the handle
Wusthof Ikon knives have very comfortable, ergonomically designed handles, which are curved to fit in the hand more naturally.
They are a little longer to give better balance, and have a secondary bolster at the end of the handle, to improve balance even further.
The handle scales are made from Mozambique ebony, a dense, close textured hard wood, in a deep rich brown colour, which is visually attractive and very tactile.
