The WÜSTHOF Classic Ikon 8" Bread Knife is, fittingly, an icon among knives, and one of the more important knives to have in your kitchen. Beyond crusty loaves of bread and soft dinner rolls, this Classic Ikon bread knife is also perfect for slicing into hard-skinned fruits and vegetables. The serrated edge of the Classic Ikon bread knife works like the teeth of a saw, yet much finer — this means minimal pressure is required for clean, even cuts.
