The Wüsthof Classic Ikon 6" utility knife features a narrow blade and is used to bridge the gap between a chef's knife and paring knife. Often, a chef's knife is simply too big and cumbersome for select slicing tasks, whereas a paring knife with its limited length is too short. The utility knife is excellent for slicing peppers, cutting apples into wedges, slicing cantaloupes, and even carving smaller birds and slices of meat. Although not suited for chopping because of the lack of knuckle clearance, the utility knife will perform most fine slicing tasks remarkably well. Try using it in a draw-slicing motion, keeping the tip on the cutting board while drawing the knife towards you. With its thin, low-drag blade, the food will generally stay on the board after a precise cut from this knife.
For a lighter look, see the Classic Creme Ikon version with a bright white POM handle. Take care of your Wusthof knives by using a high-quality Flexible Cutting Board, storing them in a Wusthof Knife Block with horizontal slots, and maintaining a great edge using a Wusthof Sharpening Steel.
