Versatile parer lets you quickly mince shallots or herbs, clean vegetables or slice foods. Each knife in Wusthof's new Classic Ikon line is forged from a single piece of steel. The laser-tested blade is 30% sharper and holds an edge 30% better than the average blade - the sharpest Wusthof knife ever made. Precision forward bolster allows full usage of the blade when cutting and sharpening; second bolster on the heel provides additional heft to the handle and stainless beauty on the end of the knife, embossed with the Wusthof logo. Stainless-steel triple rivets permanently secure the handle to the tang of the knife. The contoured shape is unique for an elegant appearance, as well as superb ergonomic comfort. Easy to use and easy to sharpen, this peeling knife is a must-have for food preparation tasks. 3 12".
