The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 11-Piece Block Set features 9 Victorinox knives with Classic Rosewood handles and extremely sharp blades that holds their edges. In addition, it includes a 10" regular cut sharpening steel and a slant hardwood oak block for storage.
As with all Victorinox knives, the handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provide a natural fit.
This Victorinox 11-Piece Rosewood Knife Block Set includes everything the home chef needs:
Victorinox 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 (R.H. Forschner) 8-inch Chef's Knife (with the Fibrox handle), which features the same blade as the chef's knife in this set, 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 8" Chef's Knife.
*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.
