The all-rounder: for mincing, chopping, or cutting meat, fish, fruit, and vegetables. The WÜSTHOF Classic Ikon 8" Chef's Knife is an active participant in many kitchen tasks, makes food prepping pleasurable, and is part of every professional and home cook’s basic equipment. The half bolster, the junction between handle and blade, reduces the weight of the knife, making it easier to handle. It also allows the entire blade to be sharpened more easily. This limited edition blade is laser-etched with the unmistakable symbol of our craftsmanship: the WÜSTHOF trident.
