Bought this knife from Amazon after seeing the amazing reviews. 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 chef's knife at reasonable price, try Stainless Steel Knife Kanesada. Kanesada maintains the balance between price and quality.

I liked the knife at first but after only a few months of light use, about 1/4" of the tip seems to have broken off. This doesn't surprise me, as the blade is thin compared to the better knives.

Update on this review: I was beyond the Amazon 30-day return period, but Victorinox was more than happy to replace it, emphasizing that all their products have a lifetime guarantee.

The Forschner 40520 was rated as "best overall" in Cooks magazine in Fall 2004. Pretty good report card from "the" chefs magazine. It took top honors over several high end ($80 -$100+) Wusthofs and Henckel models. While they didn't claim that the Forschner was better at any one specific task or that the craftsmanship can stand up to the others (its blade is cut from a blank ribbon of steel, instead of a hand-forged one piece) they did say that its lighter weight was preferred by some of their testers and that it handled the basics just as well as more expensive models. I just took delivery of mine last week and I am putting it to the test. I can say that it arrives razor sharp...nice... and that it's fairly well balanced. The handle is made of a grippy composite that allows you to securely hold firm if wet or in akward positions. The handle is a little longer than others I've owned, maybe too long for small hands, but it is contoured so you can move up towards the blade for better control. The blade does have a nice rocked contour, which makes chopping & dicing easier. I've grown to prefer ligher weight blades and you don't sacrifice much when it's this sharp. Overall I would say that for the price, this is a great chef knife..time will tell if any problems develop. Definitely doesn't have the same craftsmenship or allure of one of the high end Germans, but if your looking for a highly functional, lightweight, standard chef, it's hard to go wrong here.

Have lots of knives and all were more expensive by far than this gem and yet this is the one I reach for more often than not. I was afraid it might feel flimsy but it doesn't. It holds it edge nicely. I'd be happy to own more than one.

(check out my customer image, it's still looks brand new)
Sounds like something a married couple would say eh??? I don't feel I can add any more positive-ness to this knife but here I go. The reviews don't lie people this is a great knife, vary usable hardness, sharpens well, has not even begun to fade or rust, the handle is perfect for someone with large hands or small hands, the blade has a nice fine taper to the back of the blade (no multiple sharpening angles which I hate!!!), on and on it's just a good knife... I got this knife right when it hit the market and glad I did. I've recently ordered a new one as a valentine gift to a certain someone(:D). I would give them mine but how would we knife fight as a couple? LOL!!!

I truly don't think I'm going to be buying another one unless:

A. It get's stolen or lost.
B. It get's so old the handle dry rots.
C. I have to defend myself with it and I break it off in an intruders rib cage.
D. I'm drunk and take out in the back one day to bang on concrete (lol).
E. I accidentally leave it soaking in meritic acid.
(are you getting the picture???)

I selected this knife because it was recommended by Cooks Illustrated as a lighter weight french knife. The handle is easy to grip and the knife is very sharp -- a delight to use.

This is the chef's knife I've been looking for. The blade is the right balance between stiff and flexible. The perfectly curved shape automatically starts that rocking motion that makes chopping a breeze. I've been skeptical about ever developing the ability to chop like the chefs on cooking shows. No longer. And to think -- it was my bad knives to blame all this time! I'm buying several of these to give as Christmas gifts this year.
