Give your kitchen an extra edge with this Wusthof 4596-7/16 Classic Ikon 6" forged cook's knife with POM handle. This cook's knife is an all-purpose kitchen knife that can be used for chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing. Its weight balance makes it perfect for cutting thick veggies and meats. Wusthof's Classic Ikon line features forged, full tang blades, elegantly contoured POM handles, and a double-bolster design for professional-level heft and balance.
Each piece from the Classic Ikon line features a full tang that is triple-riveted to the handle, offering the user precision-level control. Classic Ikon handles are elegantly contoured to offer a comfortable grip and are made of durable polyoxymethylene (POM), which has a tighter molecular structure that allows it to resist fading and discoloration. This collection's double-bolster design provides excellent balance and heft in hand - the half bolster allows the full length of the blade to be sharpened, while the heel bolster adds stability. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) yields a blade that is 20% sharper with twice the edge retention, which helps keep your cutlery sharp and minimizes downtime spent honing and sharpening edges.
