The two must have knives in any kitchen are a cooks knife and a paring knife. This Ikon 2pc set combines these two sought after knives.The Wusthof Ikon is culmination of all the best features of each of the Wusthof knife lines. The combined riveted handle design is combined with a contoured shape to add comfort and control. The handles are made of African Grenadill wood. African Grenadill wood is the worlds densest wood and expands and contract less than most traditional woods. These handles are hand crafted and fitted to each knife. The Ikon adds a rear bolster that acts as a counter balance when using the knife. This second bolster adds significant blade control. Ikon has a unique forward bolster as well. The forward partial bolster is designed so you can sharpen the complete length of the blade. This bolster is also curved inwards to allow your fingers greater control while holding the knife by the blade. Wusthof uses a special blend of German steel through out the whole length of the knife. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet still be able to be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance. Our unique compound angle is not seen in many knives. This angle tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to allow for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge while it also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength as well as flexibility. Located in “The Cutlery Capital of the World”, Solingen Germany, the Wusthof factory history goes back as far as 1814 when the company was listed with the Duchy of Berg. To this day, the company remains family owned. This set includes a 3.5 inch paring which will accomplish the smaller tasks or ones demanding pinpoint accuracy.
