Meet all your cutting needs with this Victorinox santoku knife. Nothing is worse than going to cut with your cutlery, and having the handle slip around in your hand. To combat this potential for injury, Victorinox has created this Fibrox santoku knife. The Fibrox handle is textured and provides a firm grip, even when wet, and does not slip or slide around. It is comfortable and fits naturally to the shape of your hand, and provides an attractive and modern styling to the kitchen. The blading is carbon stainless steel, providing a sharp and hard edge for superior precision and accuracy. Santoku loosely translates to three uses or virtues. This is in reference towards it's ability to slice, dice, and mince. It was traditionally produced in Japan, but has been making its way into Western kitchens as an alternative to the Chef's knife.
Previously known as RF Forschner, Victorinox knives are made in Switzerland by the makers of the original Swiss Army Knife. Stemming from pure necessity, Master Cutler Karl Elsner began producing the Original Swiss Army Knife in 1891 to meet the needs of soldiers on the field. Since then, Victorinox has become a fine cutlery company true to its Swiss roots and professional cutlery precision, quality, functionality and versatility. Victorinox is in the hands of more professionals, from the meatpacking industry to a four-star restaurant, than any other brand of cutlery.
