Our “Sharp Picks” at MetroKitchen.com are a selection of Wusthof knives that are on sale for a special price and for a limited time. For this month’s “Sharp Picks” we’re offering the Wusthof Classic and Ikon 8-inch bread knives! Read on to compare them.
Both the Wusthof Ikon 8-inch bread knife (right) and the Wusthof Classic 8-inch bread knife (below) have long, serrated blades that are ideal for slicing large loaves of crusty bread. With a quality bread knife like one of these two you can make wafer-thin slices out of any bread loaf. Both knives feel very balanced because of their full tangs. They also have 100% stainless steel blades that are resistant against rust and corrosion.
The Wusthof Ikon 8-inch bread knife in the above photo differs from the Classic version in a few ways. First, the Ikon bread knife has a unique bolster that allows you to use the entire length of the blade for slicing. The Classic version’s bolster gives you a larger area to rest your fingers while you slice.
Second, the handle on the Ikon bread slicer has a shinier finish and a different shape that also feels smoother. Both handles are made from moisture-resistant poly and feature the classic-looking 3 rivets on their handles.
The Wusthof 8-inch bread knife are available now at MetroKitchen.com for $99.95, a $20 difference when compared to the usual price. The Wusthof Classic 8-inch bread knife is only $79.95, a savings of $10. Both models are made in Solingen, Germany and come with a lifetime guarantee with normal use and proper care.
