  • Blade stamped from cold-rolled steel; bolsterless edge for use of entire blade and ease of sharpening
  • Patented Fibrox handles are textured, slip resistant, and ergonomically designed for balance and comfort; NSF approved
  • Hand washing recommended; lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects; expertly made in Switzerland

Product Description
The R H Forschner by Victorinox Chef’s Knife features an 10-inch blade that is 2.25-inches wide at the handle. High carbon, stainless steel blade is hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again, so the knife can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. Victorinox handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension. They provide a natural fit. A good heft and comfortable, positive grip are indications of a well-made knife. A sure-grip handle with a finger guard is valuable feature since the handle inevitably gets greasy, wet, or both. Although cutlery steel is naturally sanitary, materials and construction details of the handle minimize crevices what would offer hospitality to bacteria.

  • The 10 inch version of this knife is awkward to handle, and dangerous to use. The balance point is somewhere in the middle of the blade, rather than where one would normally grip a knife. Yes it’s sharp, but so are the cheap hollow ground blades you find at low end retailers.

    I have cooked professionally as well as doing home cooking, so I’m not a stranger to using a knife. I find this particular knife unusable, and I am returning it.

  • Like many others, I bought this based on the reviews. The blade is nice and stiff, but the handle is not attached very well to the blade. When I try to lightly bend the blade, I can hear a little creaking noise… kinda scary when you’re trying to put some heavy duty use on it…

    I had high hopes, but low expectations with this knife. High hopes because it’s done well in Cook’s Illustrated reviews for years, and it’s gotten great reviews on Amazon, but low expectations because I’ve worked in commercial kitchens with crappy knives for about 8 years now, and this knife is very similar in look and feel to the knives I’ve used for the last 8 years. I figured I’d give this one a shot and if it didn’t work out, well, I’m only out 30 bucks. And it definitely lived up to my expectations- mainly that it will not hold an edge. At all. The knives we use where I currently work are sent out bi-weekly for sharpening. They come back razor sharp, but it only lasts for about 2 days before they get dull again. I knew within the first two hours of using this one that it was not going to work out. The edge started going in the first hour. After two hours, repeated honing did little to bring it back. I honestly don’t see why it’s gotten such great reviews. I gave it two stars instead of one because I do like the length and width of the blade, as well as the handle. Long, wide blades are difficult to find for some reason. But it goes dull quicker than any other knife I’ve used.

    My recommendation? If you’re looking for a budget knife, there are better options out there.
