To ensure your knives stay in peak cutting condition, use Wusthof’s Classic Ikon Honing Steel regularly. Over time, knives will lose their edge. Honing re-aligns the blade of a knife so that it keeps cutting cleanly between sharpening. With regular honing, your knives should only need sharpening once or twice a year depending on how often they are used.
Wusthof’s Classic Ikon knives feature a distinct, double-bolster design giving these knives a little extra weight, perfect balance, and a beautiful look.
