The Wusthof Ikon Blackwood Bread Knife features a strong, serrated blade which allows for cutting without squeezing or damaging your food. Its serrated edges are perfect for anything with a tough skin or crust, allowing the soft interior to be protected through each slice. It is ideal for slicing all types of breads, as well as large fruits such as cantaloupes, pineapples or watermelon. African Blackwood is harvested in the northern provinces of Mozambique. The high quality of the wood in this region is suitable for musical instrument manufacture. Best timber is used to make clarinets, oboes and bagpipes for musicians around the world. The quantity of supply is controlled through government regulations. African Blackwood is a slow growing tree that regenerates from root suckers and stumps. Mature trees grow as simple individuals within the savannah. At the beginning of the year, the forestry authorities of the provinces where Blackwood occurs, receive instructions from Central Government about the quantity of Blackwood that can be cut in that year.

The new Wusthof PEtec edge technology offers superior sharpness. The blade is measured before sharpening using lasers and computers calculate the precise sharpening angle. Precision robots sharpen the blade on a whetstone following a final polish using a special disc. The cutting edge produced by a knife using the PEtec process is extremely thin, this is what produces the exceptional sharpness. The benefits of the PEtec edge provide extremely high initial cutting performance with exceptionally long edge retention and long life of the blade. The quality of forged Wusthof knives produced using the PEtec process is significantly higher than that produced by the standard manual sharpening process. Made in Solingen, Germany with a lifetime warranty.
