Wusthof 4.5" Utility Classic Ikon
Stepped up a little from the traditional paring knife the 4-1/2-inch utility has the feel with a slightly longer blade for slicing fruits and vegetable as well as small meat cuts. The Wusthof Classic Ikon is culmination of all the best features of each of the Wusthof knife lines. The combined riveted handle design is combined with a contoured shape to add comfort and control. Classic Ikon adds a rear bolster that acts as a counter balance when using the knife. The second bolster adds significant blade control. Classic Ikon has a unique forward bolster as well. The forward partial bolster is designed so you can sharpen the complete length of the blade. This bolster is also curved inwards to allow your fingers greater control while holding the knife by the blade.
