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, featuring Creme White, is designed for a comfortable grip. The CLASSIC IKON 8" Carving Knife has a longer and narrower blade than a Cook’s Knife which allows for the knife to cleanly cut through meats. The pointed tip is designed to help guide meat away from the bone.
