The R H Forschner by Victorinox Chef's Knife features an 8-inch blade that is 2-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.

It was the one he wanted as he is starting to cook more and wanted a good chef's knife.
Amazon Customer
The Fibrox handle fits my hand well and is textured so it is easy to grip even when my hands are slippery.
Sharon Molnar
So nice to have a light, very sharp knife that is very well balanced and fits the hand so well.

(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 purchased this knife for two reasons: 1) America's Test Kitchen rates it their best chef knife and 2) my 40 year old Sabatier 8" chef knife while still in good shape and very satisfactory doesn't have the large blade that the Victorinox has.
I absolutely love the Victorinox and highly, highly recommend it to any one. The only thing the Sabatier does better is smash garlic due to its heavier, thicker blade.
I'm planning on getting the 12" granton edge Victorinox slicer in the near future.
By the way, the pronounciation of Victorinox according to their website is Victor-E-knocks.
If 10 stars were an option, I would give this knife a 10.

ScottyB has started doing all his own cooking because the 1% have left me nothing. I have stopped eating fast food and started eating DRIED BEANS,ROOT VEGETABLES,SEASONAL PRODUCE. My food costs have plummeted; but, my labor has escalated. The VICTORINOX 8 inch chef knife turned my hours of weekly chopping into A LABOR OF LOVE.

This is a KILLER VALUE.

CAUTION: HANDLE WITH CARE. UBER SHARP-- will slice you open in a NEW YORK MINUTE FOR ANY MENTAL LAPSE.

FINAL ANALYSIS: I got a drawer of dull knives. Was going to do the right thing and order A JAPANESE SHARPENING STONE. BUT- after reading SHARPENING STONE REVIEWS there is a LEARNING CURVE- LOT OF DIFFERENT QUALITIES- A LOT COME BROKEN- THEY ARE BIG AND NEED TO BE STORED- COST EXCEEDS NEW VICTORINOX KNIFE.

A VERY FINE KNIFE AT BEGGAR'S PRICE.

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I already had one each of the Chef and Paring Victorinox knives, for a few years, and just got a second pair. There are small changes to handle and blade, both improvements. The photo shows the older version, which is almost indistinguishable from the new. Chef knife marking on the blade are the same, the handle has a smaller logo. Paring knife logo is smaller and placed differently on the blade. The general shape and qualities of both are the same.

The blade itself has a slightly better grind to the edge. On the chef knife the angle is just a touch different but allows for smoother motion when doing rapid chopping. The tip is a little wider taper on the paring, making it less likely to lose the tip in a hard object. The handle is a little larger with the logo smaller and recessed, and has a slightly softer feel than the older models. This is the case for both the paring and the chef knife, so I knew it was a design improvement and not a manufacturing variance.

These are great bang for your buck knifes (the chef and the paring). They can be used every day, have a myriad of functions, and clean easily. I would recommend hand washing but these will survive a dishwasher hit or two with minimal problems. Sharpening them is easy, and even easier with the newer edge angle. I've had one regrind for the edge of the older knifes (my Henckles needed three in the same time period and I use these more) , and it took a minimal effort to repair the usage.

Some folks prefer a heavier steel blade on their chef knife. It was just fine for me. My more petite companion, she had a little difficulty with the handle size. The softer grip prevented any difficulties until she found her cutting rhythm and comfort. Works well with any cutting board. Save the plastic shipping cover for moving, picnics, or long term storage.

I own multiple Chef's Knives with varying quality. I own a cheap Wolfgang Puck cutlery set that I purchased for $35 at Sams Club (which includes the Chef's Knife). I also own a Cutco Chef's Knife that I received as a gift almost 10 yrs ago. I recently purchased a Wusthof Cook's Knife based on America's Test Kitchen recommendation, and I received this Victorinox as a gift.

Let me cut to the case before I go into details:
I'm shocked at how good this knife is for the price. This is without a question, the best Chef's Knife for the price.

Here is what I like about each:
-Victorinox is very sharp and cuts precisely. Includes a plastic sheath to protect the knife when not in use.
-Wolfgang Puck has very little I like about it besides the price.
-Cutco has a contoured handle that feels very comfortable in your hand. It has stayed sharp with minimal sharpening required over the last decade. The quality is good.
-Wusthof is the only one with a very good, balanced weight. Quality is also the best. Also is very sharp and cuts precisely.

Here is what I don't like about each:
-Victorinox has a plastic handle that feels a little cheap, and the weight is not very heavy or balanced.
-Wolfgang Puck does not stay sharp or cut very precisely. Doesn't have a good weight either.
-Cutco has an okay weight. Heavier than the Victorinox and Wolfgang, but not as balanced or heavy as the Wusthof.
-Wusthof doesn't have many negatives besides the price.

I end up using the Victorinox more than the other knives, because I don't have to worry about the care or damaging it as much since it's a fraction of the price, and it works really well. If I'm cutting up quite a few items, I'll use the Wusthof because the weight does help to make it a little less work in the end.

If you want the best knife, purchase the Wusthof, but if you want a good knife for a good price, this is definitely the one to go with.
