  • recommends washing your knives by hand; then immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts. They may stain the surface of your knives.
  • Always use a wooden cutting board to preserve blade sharpness. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
  • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after you've used a knife.
  • It's best to store your Wusthof knife so its edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
  • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
  • Lifetime Wusthof guarantee against material and manufacturing defects, with normal use and proper care.

This little knife is great for peeling fruits and vegetables. The handle fits my hand perfectly and the blade is at the right angle for peeling with comfort and ease. This is definitely my favorite paring type of knife. I reach for it all the time.

Ikon Birds Beak

I have used the Classic Birds Beak for years but it left home so I decided to give the Ikon version a try. I always reach for this knife when working on fruits and vegetables; the curved blade lets you peel easier, remove the core of a quartered apple with less waste or reach behind that branch of broccoli. The problem with this version is the handle. The shape of the Ikon is great but a birds beak is always used with your fingers curled over the back of the handle and this just does not work well with the Ikon line. Wusthof would do better to have the spine of the blade on the same side as the "bottom" of the handle. Until they do, get the Classic version and save the $20.
