Product Description

Colour: Black

Created with the oriental influence of Japanese Santoku knives,but with German precision and attention to detail,the Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife with 17cm blade successfully mixes elements of east and west into one of the most impressive knives of its kind. The Santoku derives its name from the Japanese word 'san' meaning 'three'; this name was given to this particular type of blade because it is suited to three tasks - chopping,slicing and mincing. The Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife has an extra sharp edge that makes it ideal for finely slicing meat,fish and vegetables. ,With its hollow edged blade,this knife allows for an extremely fine cut as the air pockets prevent food from becoming stuck on the blade. With this design feature added by Wüsthof the German influence shines through. However it is important to acknowledge what the Germans refer to as gestalt; meaning 'to look at the whole over the sum of its parts',this knife has a collection of impressive features that collectively creates a truly beautiful knife. ,Its blade it forged from one piece of solid steel giving the Wusthof Classic Santoku a sturdy and carefully weighted feel. The handle is moulded to match the contours of your knife making it extremely easy to handle and with its blade slightly shorter than that of a chef's knife,the Santoku is a more suitable for multi purpose use especially in a smaller kitchen. ,With a 58 Rockwell blade,the Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife with 17cm blade will retain its sharpness for longer than many of its peers,thereby making it safer to use and more efficient.

Colour Name: Black
This is already going to be a short review; it's a great knife.

In a little more detail, when I decided I was going to join the ranks of "people who own a good knife" I started asking around on the internet; forums, blogs, and the like. The advise was generally "You need to try a knife, feel it in your own hands, and decide which one feels best". Fair enough advise, but then the other advise more often than not was "Buy a Wusthof!". I went with the latter.

Almost a year later and I'm still happy; the Wusthof Santoku is *sharp*; I can cut through tomatoes without a serrated blade, and onions in a matter of seconds - and I'm not exactly fast with a knife (I'm not a chef, just a food blogger).

Again - a great knife, well worth the purchase. It will make you enjoy the preperation of vegetables etc even more, which will only encourage you to cook more - and that is a good thing.

Having recently caught the cooking bug I decided to invest in a good quality knife, I did not expect the difference to be so apparent, this knife will cut vegetables like butter.

Previously I had thought it necessary to use a serrated knife to cut tomatoes, with this knife gravity will do all the work no back and forth motion required. Definitely recommended !

Having made do for the first 11 years of married life with standard 7 knife block for £40, our 11th anniversary loomed and the traditional gift being steel, I researched into good knives. My wife had wanted a Santoku knife for some time, and every article said that if you can afford a Wusthof then buy one - "There are other good brands but stretch for this and you won't be disappointed". I cannot provide a comparison test, but this knife is fantastic. It cuts through vegetables as if they were butter. And tomatoes - for which I had always thought a serrated knife was obligatory - not with this Santoku knife. I would therefore fully recommend this knife - and I certainly will aim to buy Wusthof for future "good knife" purchases.

This is a beautifully balanced Santoku knife. The blade is insanely sharp and the handle gives good grip and a lovely natural ease of use. Notice how the handle rises slightly making sure you won't catch your knuckles on the chopping board. It is a thing of beauty. It's so sharp it'll cut into the chopping board. I had to think long and hard before purchasing this knife due to the price tag, but it emanates quality and should give a lifetime of service and perhaps even become an heirloom. This is no knife for putting in the cutlery drawer or chucking it into a dishwasher, it demands to be cared for and cherished, just a swill under the tap and drying immediately, and back onto the knife rack. The high carbon steel gives a really satisfying and reassuring ring when the knife is pulled from a magnetic knife rack. It cuts like a dream. I completely love it!

Although expensive, this knife is the best around, I would recommend it to any professional chef. It outperforms most other knives.

Having used Sabatier and the like I thought it was time to investigate a 'great' knife for my wife. This is a great knife. Pity it comes in such a cheap plastic tray, for £90+ it should be a little classier but nevertheless and really comfortable knife which is very sharp and so easy to use.

Now, if you enjoy cooking and would like to have a "proper" kitchen knife, then you'll be a fool to ignore this one. It is extremely practical to use, to hold and very sharp. Can't stop using it. Excellent, and a must have!
