CLASSIC IKON knives feature a distinctive, double bolster design for professional-style heft, exceptional balance and beauty. The handle is made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. The elegant shape of the handle is designed for a comfortable grip.


A New WÜSTHOF logo for the Next Generation

Across two centuries and seven Family generations, we never stop etching our mark. The WÜSTHOF Trident has always represented our unwavering pursuit of excellence and quality worldwide. To celebrate this tradition, we have once again refined our mark.

Summer 2020 sees the relaunch of our logo. The iconic Trident remains the core visual of our brand, symbolizing the heritage, quality and sharpness of each of our blades. The newly designed logo emphasizes a clear-cut, sharp and to-the-point modern design. At the same time, this contemporary interpretation acknowledges the age-old artisanal tradition of knife making while exemplifying the high-precision craftsmanship embodied in all WÜSTHOF knives.

While visual elements such as our logo and the etchings on our blades have changed, the craftsmanship you have come to expect from our factories in Solingen, Germany, continues to be our core value. Our tradition of the highest quality will always remain our commitment to you, or consumer.

Product Highlights:

  • Precision-forged from a single blank of high carbon stainless steel
  • Full tang that is triple riveted to the handle for precise control
  • Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) yields a blade that is 20% sharper with twice the edge retention.
  • The half bolster allows for the knife to be honed and sharpened the entire length of the blade and the heel bolster provides added balance
  • Contoured handle for comfortable fit and a more contemporary appearance
