The Classic Ikon is precision forged from a single blank of high carbon steel. The handles are perfectly sealed black polycarbonate and stainless steel. Triple riveted full tang handles are innovatively designed to give the best fit possible. This design is the result of many years of testing.
I have always been a big fan of Wusthof knives; the Classic 10" chef knife was the first high quality knife I purchased. The Classic Ikon is an improvement in 3 key areas: 1) The modified bolster means that the big slab of steel at the heel of the blade is gone. This allows you to sharpen the full length of the blade. 2) Harder steel. 58 Rockwell hardness as opposed to 56 on the Classic. 3) Handle design. This "humpback" handle snugs tightly into the palm for a firm grip and control.
