Wüsthof Classic Ikon 8" Chef's Knife


Reviewed by , Editor,

The Wüsthof Classic Ikon 8" Chef's Knife is an approachable, well-built knife. This knife is designed for everyday use and has many of the features that made Wüsthof famous. Whether chopping vegetables for a salad, prepping ingredients for a stir-fry, or slicing meat to serve, this knife will be ideal for the task. 

This is a fully forged knife, meaning it is made from one piece of metal. It also has a full tang, meaning this piece of metal extends through the handle. This, combined with the high-quality of the steel, make the knife incredibly strong and durable.

The high-carbon steel used to make this knife is also highly stain-resistant. This means you won't be left with a green blade after chopping greens. A light rinse with hot water gets rid of any residue after using the knife. 

I find the 8" blade size that we tried in the test kitchen to be just right, but there is also a 6" and 10" model you can choose from. The balance of the knife is great, and the handle fits quite comfortably in my grip. This gives more control when preparing ingredients. 

This is a fabulous knife to build a collection around. It is versatile, reliable, and is sure to last many years!
