Wüsthof Ikon Damascus Chef's Knife In Collector's Box
The cutlery artisans at Wüsthof have forged a masterpiece with this chef’s knife, which combines the ancient art of Damascus steel making with top performance for the modern kitchen. This true Damascus blade is hand crafted through a labor-intensive process where hundreds of layers of steel are forged and folded together, producing an extremely strong blade distinguished by its beautiful wavy, water-like pattern. Each knife displays a unique blade pattern, which is complemented by a thuya wood handle. An heirloom piece for cooks and collectors, this exclusive chef’s knife comes in a wooden presentation case.

- Triple-riveted handle is contoured for comfort.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MichaelVie from Looks bigger in the picture First I am proud to own this beautiful knife. However it lacks some of the markings commonly found on Damascus knives. It thought it was going to be a larger blade, but it is slightly smaller than the picture reveals.Date published: 2013-02-27
