Smaller than a chef's knife and larger than a paring knife, the WÜSTHOF Ikon 5" Serrated Utility Knife is the perfect blade for a myriad of tasks. Think of this handy utility knife as a slightly longer, just-as-versatile paring knife with an aptitude for chopping shallots, onions, herbs, tender vegetables, and smaller cuts of meat. It's also the perfect companion at brunch or for preparing your packed lunch, thanks to its fine, serrated edge — the serrated blade not only cuts cleanly through sandwich rolls, but also expertly slices tomatoes, fruits, and cured sausages. Forged from a single piece of specially tempered WÜSTHOF steel, each luxury Ikon knife features a full tang, a distinct double bolster, and final edge work hand-honed by one of WÜSTHOF's expert knife artisans in Solingen, Germany, the international cutlery capital. Ergonomic handles are crafted from sustainably grown, water-resistant African Blackwood, one of the hardest and heaviest woods in the world.
