The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 7-Piece Block Set features 5 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 knife block set includes everything the home chef needs:
- 3.25 inch paring knife
- 6 inch boning knife
- 8 inch chef's knife
- 8 inch bread knife
- 10 inch slicer
- 10 inch sharpening steel
- Slanted oak knife block for storage
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 (Forschner) 8 inch Chef's Knife with the Fibrox handle, which features the same blade as the chef's knife included in this block 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."
