This Wusthof Classic Ikon Boning Knife measures 5" on the blade and is great for a boning meat or filleting fish. Works well for de-boning chicken or ham, trimming fat and sinews. The tapered, pointed blade is a necessity for working closely around joints. Wusthof’s Ikon Knives combine exceptional workmanship and an aesthetically striking design. This multipurpose knife feels great in your hand. The knife is made with a full tang that runs from the blade’s tip throughout the handle, and provides excellent balance as well as control. We really like the tapered bolster design of these knives since it allows for years of easy sharpening and reduces the weight of the knife.
