The Wusthof Classic Ikon 6" Chef's Knife is a smaller version of the standard 8" workhorse of the kitchen, the essential chef's knife, with both a smaller blade and handle. The cook’s knife is an indispensable all-purpose kitchen knife that can be used for chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing. This shorter version has the same blade shape suitable for a rocking motion on the cutting board. Whether you are more comfortable with a smaller blade or just want a blade matched for smaller foods, this steel is a steal at this price!

CLASSIC IKON knives feature a distinctive, double bolster design for professional-style heft, exceptional balance and beauty. The handle is made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. The elegant shape of the handle is designed for a comfortable grip.
