Each month at MetroKitchen.com we offer a few Wusthof knives at special low prices for a limited time, which we call our “Sharp Picks.” For July, we’re offering the Wusthof Classic and Ikon 4-piece steak knife sets! Read on to compare the two!
The knives in the Wusthof Classic 4-Piece Steak Knife Set feature the same high-quality materials and benefits as Wusthof’s Classic kitchen cutlery. Like most other Wusthof Classic knives, these 4-1/2 inch steak knives have super-sharp edges thanks to Wusthof’s new PeTec sharpening system. This system allows Wusthof to make these knives 30% sharper and 40% more long-lasting. The sharpness of this new edge will surprise you as you cut through any steak or pork chop with ease.
These knives are also resistant against any stains and corrosion because they feature Wusthof’s famous German stainless steel. This steel is hard enough to retain a great edge but also includes just the right blend of metals to resist damage.
Wusthof’s Classic series handles are great because they combine a comfortable design and 3-rivet construction. The handle won’t warp or become damaged because it’s made from a moisture-resistant poly material. It also encloses the knife’s full tang, which improves this knife’s overall balance.
The Wusthof Classic 4-piece steak knife set is on sale now MetroKitchen.com for $159.95, a $10 difference when compared to the ordinary price. These knives are made in Solingen, Germany and come with a lifetime warranty with normal use and proper care. This price will only last until the end of July, so hurry and take a look!
I like to think of the Wusthof Classic Ikon 4-Piece Steak Knife Set as a hot-rodded version of the Classic series set. This set of 4-1/2 inch steak knives includes the same sharp and long-lasting PeTec edge as the Classic version, as well as the same damage-resistant German stainless steel. However, there are three major differences between this set and the Wusthof Classic version.
The first thing that sets these Classic Ikon steak knives apart from the Classic Series knives is their smoother and more ergonomic handles. Like the Classic versions, these handles are made from a moisture-resistant poly material, but they have a glossy finish that’s striking and attractive.
The Classic Ikon steak knives also have a differently-shaped bolster that gives you access to the entire length of the blade for cutting and sharpening.
The last major difference is that the Classic Ikon set comes with an attractive wooden display case for your knives, so you can stylishly present them at a dinner party.
The Wusthof Classic Ikon 4-piece steak knife set is available now at MetroKitchen.com for $249.95, a $20 difference when compared to the usual price! Both sets are made in Solingen, Germany and come with a lifetime guarantee with normal use and proper care. Check out these deals before they end on July 31!
