For over 100 years, Victorinox Commercial Cutlery has become the tool of choice for professionals, and the brand continues to innovate with the introduction of the new ceramic blade collection featuring proprietary Fibrox® handles. Ceramic blades have recently gained popularity due to their outstanding edge retention and resistance to corrosion and acids.
Our ceramic blades are manufactured from high-purity zirconium oxide powder, compressed at very high pressures and sintered in furnaces at temperatures over 2700° F. The result is an extremely hard blade that is comparable to the hardness of a diamond. Each knife is then equipped with our classic Victorinox Fibrox handle with signature textured grip, helping reduce the chance of slippage. And with the handle designed to minimize wrist tension while still providing legendary cuts, it’s no wonder that Victorinox Commercial Cutlery remains the true choice of professionals. Ceramic blades are as useable as metal blades. Ceramic knives have several distinguishing features.
- Precision Sharpness: We compress materials at very high pressures resulting in a hard blade which is comparable to diamonds. This hardness allows us to apply an edge with microscopic precision. The edge will maintain its razor sharpness and is resistant to wearing.
- No Odors: Ceramic material is not very porous; it keeps the blade from transferring odors from one food item to another. You can cut something spicy, give it a quick rinse and then cut something else. The spiciness won’t transfer to the next food item.
- Sanitary: Ceramic blades are very dense, with very little pores. Just like your face, the less pores there are, the less dirt and grime can get into the pores. A quick rinse in warm water will get your ceramic knife a lot cleaner than a thorough scrubbing on a metal knife.
- Light Weight: Ceramic material is very light weight; half the weight of steel. The lighter weight means there will be less strain on your arms and shoulders. You can tackle any food preparation task with ease and precision, just like a pro.
- No Rust: Because metal is not used in ceramic knives, they will never rust. This makes them the perfect knives for humid climates where risks of rust are high.
6-Inch Chef's: The most important tool and essential to every cook, a chef‘s knife is most often used in a rocking method to mince, dice, and chop vegetables and herbs. This one is known as the chef’s best friend.
7-Inch Santoku: This knife combines the features of a cleaver with a chef's knife. The curved blade helps the rocking motion used for chopping, and the wide blade works well for scooping sliced food off a cutting board and for crushing garlic. The santoku can also be used to slice meat and has a narrow spine for making thin cuts.
Utility: An all-purpose knife often referred to as a sandwich knife, the utility knife peels and slices fruits and vegetables, and even carves small meats.
Ceramic Sharpener: The Victorinox Diamond knife sharpener with stand is specifically engineered for the care of Victorinox ceramic cutlery. The sharpener panel has diamond particles and the stand on which the knife should be placed sets the blade at the correct angle for sharpening.
The benefits of Fibrox handles
Our Fibrox handles are created with the unique hygienic needs of the home chef. They are designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure grip. They are also sanitary and easy to clean. They feature a lifetime warranty against manufacturer’s defects.
How should I care for my ceramic cutlery?
After use, clean ceramic knives with a mild detergent. Dishwashing is not recommended, unless the knife can be guaranteed not to come into contact with any other product. Never clean with a wire brush or hold in an open flame. We recommend the use of a special diamond sharpener like our Victorinox Ceramic Diamond Sharpener. Store your ceramic knives in the supplied protector.
Who is Victorinox?
Although Victorinox is known the world over as the creator of the Original Swiss Army Knife, the company started out in 1884 as a cutlery workshop. By the time company creator Karl Elsener delivered his first pocket knife to the Swiss Army, his cutlery business was already booming. Over the next century, Victorinox cutlery became a top-rated choice among professionals worldwide, with over 300 blades to offer.
Victorinox knives have regularly appeared as highly ranked and recommended kitchen tools in Cook’s Illustrated, Men’s Health, The Cincinnati Enquirer, New York Magazine, and Natural Health, just to name a few. In 2009, the company announced a partnership with professional chef, Daniel Humm, of Eleven Madison Park in New York City. In addition, building on the success of its cutlery business, Victorinox has brought all the same quality and expertise to a wider range of products and accessories, including other kitchen tools, pocket tools, watches, luggage, and clothing.

Top Customer ReviewsBy Gearhead Mania on April 26, 2010Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )1 Comment Sending feedback...Victorinox CeramicLine Santoku Knife
I did some research on santoku and ceramic knives before I tried it out in the kitchen. I learned that the santoku knife is designed for slicing, dicing, and mincing and literally translates to three uses. The santoku apparently relies on a single downward cutting motion rather than rocking. As a result, the santoku is more appropriate for working with vegetables and fruits. They typically measures about 5"-7" and this Victorinox was a 7" model.
Ceramic knives are constructed out of hard ceramics like zirconium oxide. Victorinox claims this blade is made almost 100% out of high-purity zirconium oxide. The material is sharpened by diamond-dust coated grinding wheels, or grinding wheels with extremely hard materials. Zirconia is ranked 8.5 on the Mohs scale compared to 6.5 for hardened steel or 10 for a diamond. Industrial grade diamond sharpeners are recommended when sharpening a ceramic blade.
The handle is made of a polyamide plastic and the instructions give many warnings against using the blade for hitting or levering. The ceramic material is hard, but it is also very brittle. They recommend using a wood or plastic cutting surface, and to avoid hitting other objects in a dishwasher.
Cutting soft vegetables and fruits (like oranges) is easy, but it requires a lot of effort for raw meat and harder vegetables. This is not a 1 size fits all blade, it has its limits in the kitchen.
Pros: Lightweight, balanced, novel blade material. Doesn't rust and doesn't leave a metallic taste in foods.
Cons: Ceramic material is high maintenance - avoid hitting a hard surface or using it as a lever, but even with normal light-usage the blade will chip very easily.Read more ›Thank you for your feedback.Report abuseSorry, we failed to record your vote.

Heck, just a few years ago you couldn't buy one this large at all, so it was great to see this one come it at this price point.
The handle is plastic (which is fine), but looks and feels cheap (which is not). It is a pretty big mis-step, and when combined with the white blade and the light weight, the entire knife looks and feels like a plastic picnic knife. So, it is cool, but you aren't going to want to show it off.
The ceramic blade is hard, but extremely brittle (like glass). This means that any accidental contact with a countertop edge or even a bone will chip off little bits of it. Also, this kind of knife cannot be used for any kind of prying or twisting tasks as the blade will shatter.
It is very thick, especially for a Santoku, which is supposed to have a very thin profile. This is probably because if they made it thinner it would be even more likely to break or chip.
So, on one hand it is very cool to have a ceramic knife. It will stay sharp, won't rust, and won't transfer anything to your food.
On the other hand, it is going to chip no matter how careful you are with it. It also can't be used in any situation where you might have to twist it, or might hit a bone. This limits the usefulness enough for me to recommend sticking to standard knives first, and after you have the ones you need consider buying this one just to play with. You don't need it, but if you've always wanted a ceramic knife this is a (relatively) inexpensive way to try one.

It is simply the best knife EVER! It cuts through everything so easily, I am in awe. I have other knives I felt were decent, but boy was I wrong. I used to use a utility knife to cut through raw chicken, but no more. This knife cuts through raw chicken like it is butter! Raw steak is a breeze, too, and I can cut an onion so fast I don't even have time to cry! Some tidbits...I used the knife on a textured glass cutting board, which was a very bad idea. It made a small nick in the blade, and I am very angry with myself for this. Use it on a smooth cutting surface only. And, because the blade is white, it will remind you of plastic cutlery, which may make you undermine just how truly SHARP this knife is. Don't be fooled.
It cleans great, is nice and light, and cuts effortlessly. I would give it 10 stars if I could.Thank you for your feedback.Report abuseSorry, we failed to record your vote.

Cordoba on May 6, 2010Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )Comment Sending feedback...For a ~$100 knife, this falls short on several areas.
I have the regular santoku (8 inch metal blade) and it's a superb knife for the price (around $25). The fibrox handles however, should not go on any high end knife. I know they are practical handles, but it looks like cheap plastic, feels like cheap plastic, and while acceptable in a 25 dollar knife, putting it on a 100 dollar knife just seems out of place. Basically, it makes the knife look like it's worth a lot less.
The blade, which their marketing claim to be as hard/sharp as a diamond due to their manufacturing process - is very sharp. However, out of the box, there was a little piece of the blade which was chipped, looked like little rough teeth: ^^^^ . If I hadn't gotten it free through vine, I would return the product. I understand that defects for some products, but it still brings into question the quality of the ceramic blade (hard/sharp as a diamond) having a tiny piece of it chipped off, so 98% of the blade is smooth, and there is this 2 percent of jaggedness (though again very very small).
The knife cuts well, is sanitary like all ceramic blades, but:
- Very light (despite being so sharp, you need to use more force when cutting compared to other knives in this price range (those made of metal with wood handles for example).
- chipped blade makes me question the durability/hardness claim of the ceramic used.
- Very cheap looking handle for a knife in this price range.
You can cut tomatoes without putting any pressure on them, cut thin lines of onion easily, it really is an incredibly sharp knife.
If the blade didn't have that small defect, and the handle was of higher quality I wouldn't hesitate in giving this 5 stars.Thank you for your feedback.Report abuseSorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again
