The unique Wusthof Classic Ikon Knives are a new ergonomic design series of knives from the world famous Wusthof Knife Company.  Wusthof is a seventh generation owned and managed company located in Solingen Germany.  This highly respected company has a unique forty step process to manufacture their knives assuring the quality Wusthof demands in all of their products.

The Ikno knives are Japanese style with blades made from one piece of X50CrMoV15 high carbon stainless steel.  The Ikon knives have much thinner blades when compared to other knives in the Classic line.  Many say the thinner blade provides the ultimate cutting experience and a lighter feel.  They are exceptionally sharp and keep their sharp edge – some say, it seems like, forever. 

The Wusthof Classic Ikon Knives have a newly designed polypropylene ergonomic handle that is riveted in three places.  The bolsters are recessed so that the blade can be sharpened all the way to the heel.

A few people with larger hands said that the handles were a little uncomfortable until they got use to them.  However, most people that reviewed the Wusthof Classic Ikon Knives said that the handling was excellent and the grip was a perfect fit. 

One reviewer said, “I found that the blades were balanced well and are very attractive in appearance”.   Another said that the price of these knives is prohibitive so I imagine they will not appeal to everyone.  However, considering that these knives carry a life time warranty which  typically means a one time purchase and the added cost of replacing less expensive knives, the Wusthof Classic Ikon Knives may very well be a wise investment.
