This is probably my favorite knife to use on a day to day basis. My sister went to culinary school and recommended Wusthof in addition to the Classic Ikon series because of the full tang and the fact that they are smaller in comparison to the Classic series making it perfect for women or those with smaller hands. The blade stays sharper than other knives I own, I've had it for months and use it regularly and haven't had to sharpen it yet. Would highly recommend to anyone! Especially the 5 inch for those with smaller hands.

This is my favorite knife in the whole block. The handle is comfortable to grip and lightweight, making it easy to work with. I've used this for chopping all kinds of vegetables and fruits. It even works great for mincing garlic. The hollow edge most definitely helps to reduce chopped pieces sticking. My mom loved it after staying with me for a week so I purchased her one and it's her favorite knife too!

This is a great, high-quality knife. It’s cuts with ease and I really do love it. Because it is so expensive I am extra careful with it -always hand-washing it, towel drying it, and I still store it in the box it came in to protect the blade. I was disappointed to notice that even with all of that care, there is a small chip in the blade. That is my only complaint, otherwise it is an amazing knife.

This is an amazing knife, I love mine and this is the one I reach for the most. I had to buy another one just Incase one was dirty. The pro is this will possibly be one of the last knives like this I’ll ever buy. The con is the price, but if you think about it I may never buy this type of knife again if it holds up, so the price seems pretty fair

If you chop a lot of mushrooms or other soft vegetables in your kitchen this knife is a must-have. Again, as with every other wusthof knife, the balance of this one is great and the quality-to-price ratio is on point. A great wedding present, a great housewarming gift, and a great gift to yourself if you love to cook.

This was a gift and I love it! I hate to say this but considering it’s size I use it on almost everything except when I use a utility knife for veggies or a paring knife! I can’t access it cost I can only say I value it and if you consider yourself somewhat of a foodie or gourmet, you have to have it!

It's literally my absolute favorite piece I've added to my butcher black. I love the hallow edge so food is so easy to chop, and the 5 inch size is perfection for those small jobs-garlic, etc., I find myself grabbing for it every single time I am cooking and am so glad I purchased this.

We received this knife for our bridal shower a few months ago. I didn't love cooking before because I hated chopping vegetables...with this knife and its precision sharpness, I thoroughly enjoy being in the kitchen now. We Hand wash these knifes and they are still in great shape.

We received this as a gift and it might be my favorite Wusthof knife yet! It's so easy to use, the hollow edge makes it so simple to keep moving quickly without food getting in the way. The handle for the Ikon is second to none and the weight / grip of it is amazing. Highly recommend!
