The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 8-Piece Block Set features 6 Forschner knives with Fibrox handles and extremely sharp blades that holds their edges. In addition, it includes a set of 3" kitchen shears, a 10" regular cut sharpening steel and a slant hardwood oak block for storage.
The patented Fibrox knife handles are dishwasher safe and slip resistant, even when wet. They are also NSF approved, as crevices that would offer hospitality to bacteria are minimized. As with all R.H. Forschner knives, the handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provide a natural fit.
This set includes everything the home chef needs:
Forschner knives all have high carbon, stainless steel blades that are hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. Each knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished. Victorinox uses a special tempering process to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again.
The Victorinox (formerly R.H. Forschner) 8-inch Chef's Knife won the distinction of Best Value in the April, 2007 Cook's Illustrated test. Testers for this popular consumer magazine summarized their review by saying, "This is exactly what a knife is supposed to be."
Engraving: Up to 16 characters can be laser engraved on the blade of the 8" Chef's Knife in addition to 10 characters on its handle.
*What happened to R.H. Forschner Cutlery? R.H. Forschner by Victorinox kitchen cutlery is now Victorinox cutlery. Only the name has changed. The quality, Swiss-made blades and safe, ergonomic Fibrox handles remain the same.
