WÜSTHOF 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. The Classic Ikon 9" Double Serrated Bread Knife has double the number of serrations of a standard serrated knife. The design of the knife glides through crusty breads with minimal crumbs without damaging the inside. This knife can also be used on delicate produce or even angel food cake. This style of edge is also ideal for left handed users as it does not pull like a traditional serration.
