A Slice of Life that WILL bring you more than you expect...
on February 26, 2009
As a retired professional chef who cut his teeth on classicly forged Sabatiers,bringing a German stamped blade (even finished by the genuine Swiss Army Knife craftsman) didn't seem like an option. However, having married a Swiss Miss, how could I refuse the gift of a Forschner blade?
I was amazed! Granted it did not have the heft of a forged blade... but that turned out to be a welcomed advantage. I knew that European restaurants and Cooks Illustrated buy Forischer in quantity... but I was brain washed to believing that was more for economy than quality. Not so!
Handling a 12" slicer is an easily acquired art... and a boon to anyone who desires to section a 12" pizza in a way that will have you toss your wheeled pizza cutter! While at first the size of this knife makes me think of the first time I got behind the wheel of a large motor home... it soon takes its user friendly place on your (recommended) magnetic knife rack.
From fantastic flank steak to robust roasts, this is the knife of choice!
