Summary

Ideal for precision tasks like mincing and paper-thin slicing, this santoku combines classic German craftsmanship and traditional Japanese styling. Oval-shaped hollows on the blade allow the knife to glide through foods without sticking. To keep your knife in top condition, we’ve included a Wüsthof sharpener, specially designed for use on Asian-style blades.

  • Set includes Wüsthof Classic Ikon santoku knife with free Wüsthof Asian Edge knife sharpener.
  • Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion.
  • Blade has hollow-ground depressions to reduce friction and minimize sticking.
  • Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) gives each straight-edged knife an extraordinarily sharp blade that retains its edge 30% longer.
  • Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control.
  • A recessed bolster facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the cutting edge; a heel bolster provides added balance.
  • Sharpener is designed for the special angle of Asian knife blades and offers two-stage manual sharpening: a coarse ceramic slot to set a sharp edge, along with a fine ceramic slot to hone the edge. Easy-grip handle and nonslip rubber feet ensure stability.
  • Knife: 7"-long blade; 5"-long handle; 6.5 oz.; made in Germany.
  • Sharpener: 8" x 1 3/4"; 3 1/3" high; 9 oz.; made in China.
Use & Care

Use

Knife:

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Sharpener:

  • Slide the blade through the coarse ceramic slot to set a sharp edge; pass the blade through the fine ceramic slot to hone the edge.

Care

Knife:

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

Sharpener:

  • Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
