Summary

Bring these attractive German-crafted knives to the table whenever steak is on the menu. Each precision-forged high-carbon-steel blade is triple riveted to a finely grained African blackwood handle. A kit for maintaining the appearance of the handles is included.

  • Set includes four 4 1/2" steak knives in a wooden box for presentation and storage and a care kit.
  • Each knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion.
  • Full tangs are triple riveted to the handles for exceptional durability and control.
  • Each knife has a recessed bolster that facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the cutting edge; the heel of the bolster provides added balance.
  • Comfortable contoured handles are cut from dense African blackwood and hand polished.
  • Included care kit contains mineral oil for maintaining the silken finish of the handles.

Use & Care

Use

  • 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.

Care

  • 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, you should not need to sharpen your knife 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.

Free Knife Sharpening in Stores

Working with a sharp knife is safer, more effective and much less tiring than trying to cut and slice with a dull one.

The first knife is free; each additional knife is just $5.

Our stores also offer knife demonstrations to teach you the correct grip, positioning and basic knife techniques and can help you find the perfect cutlery for your needs – just ask a store associate for assistance.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackwood Ikon Steak Knives I love the Blackwood line from Wüsthof. I recently added eight of these steak knives to my slowly growing Blackwood collection, and I couldn't be happier with them. I like the look and feel of the Wüsthof Ikon, and the Blackwood gives it that extra something special in my opinion. I'm glad I was able to see the Blackwood line in a WS store before they became online only. My only gripe is the sad made in China "wood" storage box Wüsthof pairs with this set. I wish they would take $0.50 off the price and skip the box.

  • I ordered a set last year and it came with a walnut storage box.  Now the product description doesn't mention a box.  I want to order another set but only if it comes with the box.  Does this set come with a walnut storage box?

    Asked by: Lisa
    Hi Lisa, This steak knife set comes in a black presentation box. We will be updating the product page shortly with this information.
