The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 8 inch Chef's Knife features a Classic Rosewood handle and extremely sharp blade that holds its edge. As with all Victorinox knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a natural fit.
Victorinox Kitchen 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 Fibrox handle, which features the same blade as this 8" Rosewood 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."
Add custom engraving to the blade of this award-winning Chef's knife for a gift or for identification.
