Wusthof - 6" Flexible Fillet Knife - Classic Ikon

Article code 4977
Used for deboning and filleting fish, but cutting meat or peeling fruit are great options too!

This knife is the perfect tool for deboning and filleting fish. Its very narrow blade allows professionnal and amateur cooker to move smoothly along the backbone of the fish.The grip is made more comfortable and is conceived to help the knife maneuver around smaller bones.

This one is from the Classic Ikon Line, which combines exquisite design and exceptional performance. The line offers fully forged blades that are incredibly sharp. Each blade features a striking double-bolster design, while the ergonomic handle rests perfectly in your hand for optimal performance and comfort.

Technical characteristics:

  • Full length silk (blade)
  • Forged steel knife
  • Alloy making up the blade: hardness of 58 on the Rockwell scale (HRc), i.e. a medium hard steel
  • Polypropylene handle riveted in 3 places
  • The depressions (alveoli) along the blade minimize friction between food and the blade and allow them to peel off the blade more easily, making cutting easier.
  • Light, this knife also has a handle slightly smaller than a standard chef's knife, particularly suitable for smaller hands.
  • Contoured handle for increased comfort


  • It is very important to maintain your knife frequently (at least 1 to 2 times per week, even every day) with a rifle (or rat tail) made of a metal just as hard as that of your knife (consult us for more information).
  • Alternatively, the two-step sharpener is a practical tool that does not require technique.
  • The important thing is to use one or the other, but to use one. If you fail to do so, you will notice an under-performance of the edge of your knife and you will be exposed to an increased risk of injury.
    Washing in the dishwasher strongly discouraged, since it dulls the edge of the knife (the sharp part of the knife); so hand wash.


Depending on the use, once or twice a year, sharpen your knife (on a grinding wheel or Japanese water stones). At any time, you can bring your knives to the store to have them sharpened by our Sandro Vecchio trimmer (generally 4 days).
