The Wüsthof Classic Ikon tomato knife, 14 cm is, as the name might already suggest, pefect when cutting tomatoes. Because of the serrated edge you can quickly cut through the tough skin of a tomato without crushing it. With the two tips at the end of the blade you can easily scoop up pieces of tomato, cucumber, cheese, salami or other food.
Like with other Wüsthof collections the blade is made from X50CrMoV15 steel, which was sharpened according to the PEtec method, and polished by hand. This type of steel is also easy to sharpen.
Another advantage of this blade is the crop. It doesn’t extend all the way to the edge, but does separate the handle from the blade. As such you not only keep your fingers safe, you can also use the entire edge. Also great when you want to sharpen the knife.
The handle is made from rock-solid POM. This is a shock, heat and acid proof material you can easily clean. Perfect for kitchen knives. The steel of the blade seamlessly merges with the handle. This is not only a rock-solid connection, it also provides great balance. Combined with the ergonomic shape this knife feels amazing in hand.
