I must admit, these are not as attractive as the forged knives. Then again, this set can be purchased for less than one European Chef's knife.
The bottom line, a good knife really lies in feel, and performance. Purchasing a set like this, the performance will not be an issue.
The Victorinox knives are workhorses, which is one reason they're sometimes found in restaurant kitchens, but the problem with this set is that it's overpriced, and most home cooks don't need and will seldom use all four knives. You can buy the chef's knife, a 9" Victorinox Wavy Edge Bread Knife with offset handle, and a Rada paring knife for about half the price of this set (based on Amazon prices) and have better tools than this set offers.
This knife set is excellent value for money, contains the 4 basic knives you need to have in a kitchen if you cook on a regular basis, and importantly, the knives are not made in China. The 8" chef's knife feels good in the hand in terms of balance and, when sharp, slices through most any vegetable/meat like it was butter - this is the most basic go-to knife to have. The 6" slicing knife is good to slice through cheese, sandwiches, fruits, and practically anything that's on your cutting board, if you're not using the chef's knife. The 10" bread knife is perfect for slicing through full loaves. Though it's never happened, sometimes I'm afraid it will saw through the bread into the cutting board underneath. The paring knife, though a bit large (4"), also fits well in the hand and does its job very well. So far, so good.
Now, for the bad:
The much touted Fibrox handles don't really do it for me. They're non-slip when the hands are wet, fit well in the hands, do not impede the knife's function (all very good), but the texture of the handles is rough and not to my preference and this ruins the hand-feel for me. The sensation to touch is the same as running your hand on rough, unseasoned cast iron. What was wrong with a silicone handle, which is softer and reasonably non-slip when wet, that prompted the designers to choose something rough instead?
I am meticulous about knife care: I always hand wash all my knives, hand wipe the blades, hone with a sharpening steel before every use, and use the knives on a maple cutting board. Nonetheless, the edge retention is not the best, and both the slicing and chef's knives have already lost some of their edge within 3 weeks of purchase and moderate use.Read more ›
Can you compare these to knives costing $300 a set? Cutting probably, but construction? Probably not.
How they arrived
The knives came in a cheap card board box without any writing in plastic generic sleeves, packed with brown paper. No frills.
The knives have a mirrored appearance on the blades.
The blades are thin, but I have had no issues cutting, chicken,steak, pork or veggies
The handles are plastic with texture (tiny bumps, fissures)
The knives are very light, but handle fine with the non slip handle grip.
Most of my knives where sharp.
I used steel on the 8" chefs knife and then it was as sharp as the others.
For the price point i don't think these knives have any competition.
Are the draw backs? Yes.
How they worked
The knives are light weight, although I believe they will last.
I have used them for one month and I am enjoying them over my wooden handle 15 year old henckles. I do not dish washer my knives, I hand wash them, mirrored appearance is the same after daily use
When cutting potatoes that were wet I notice the mirrored blade would suction/grab against the potato. That was using the 8 inch chefs knife. When I used the 6" chef utility, it had no sticking and was like cutting through butter.
The bread knife and paring knife are great as well.
If you're looking for a cheap sharp knife and can get past that they aren't full tang high quality chef knives then these are for you.
Side note, I have the old henckles 4 star?Read more ›
For me, the 6-inch is actually good enough for most chopping/slicing tasks, but the entire set would be the perfect kitchen starter.
