Rated 5 out of 5 by Cityviewchef 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.Date published: 2016-05-06
