Victorinox Swiss Army has been making legendary Swiss Army Knives since 1897. Guess what we made before that.
When Karl Elsener created the first Swiss Army Knife, he had no idea that he had just invented the symbol of Swiss ingenuity for generations to come. As a Master Cutler, he was only doing what came naturally. Karl had opened his cutlery factory 13 years before in Ibach, a village in northern Switzerland. By the time he dreamed up the world's first pocket tool, his cutlery business was already booming.
As it was then, Cutlery by Victorinox Swiss Army is today the first choice of professionals right down the line - as ubiquitous in the bustling meat-packing plants of the Midwest as it is in the gleaming, four-star restaurant kitchens of Midtown Manhattan.
You don't have to be a professional to appreciate our beautifully balanced, perfectly weighted, razor-sharp tools. But you can now put them to work just the same.
Victorinox Swiss Army has been handcrafting the finest blades since 1884.

Although I have a set of Trident forged knives. I jumped at the chance to check out these knives since some of the specialty knives in this set (Granton Santoku and the flexible filet) will be a welcome addition to my collection. Some years ago someone told me that Victorinox / Forschner are the most popular knife in culinary schools due to their bang for the buck - considered the best performing knives for the cost.
I am not disappointed. These knives are extremely sharp, right out of the box. The handles are nicely molded and feel solid. The blade thickness varies between the blades, and tapers from the handle down to the tip, clearly indicating that they do a lot to these knives after the stamping process - although the 8" chefs is a stamped blade, it still feels more than stiff and sturdy enough when cutting carrots. The only minus I would make is that the storage block was made in China. It's typical "Nato" or "Rubber tree wood" - the photo here at Amazon is accurate, so zoom in for a good look. although it's a hard solid wood, I don't consider the grain to be that attractive. Unfortunately, I'm sure maple or oak would have driven the cost up considerably. Nato doesn't absorb oil so once the finish gets scratched it tends to look more worn than oak or maple with a mineral oil finish.
This is not a cheap set and there are cheaper knives, but I'm classifying them as budget knives since they are stamped - albeit certainly amonth the best stamped knives out there.Read more ›
Stamped knives are less expensively produced compared to forged. Generally, when comparing same sized knives, a stamped knife will have less heft and a thinner non-cutting edge. Purists insist that forged knives stay sharper longer and can take more abuse. Victorinox stamped knives are not as good as Victorinox forged, but they are still high quality.
Individually, you could purchase (what I consider to be) the important pieces of this set, except for the shaping knife, for just a little less than $200. These knives are: Paring (2); Utility; Boning; Santoku; Chef's (2); Carving, Slicing and Bread. I could not find the Shaping knife available individually in the Fibrox line.
The remaining of the twenty-two pieces are extraneous: eight steak knives; shears; sharpening steel and a wood block. These are items I already own or do not or would not use. Even if I needed to purchase any of them, branding would not really matter to me given their functionality.
I am a regular user and big fan of the knives in Victorinox's Fibrox line. If you need all that is included, this set is a good buy. If you already own some of the items, you can save money by purchasing just the items that you really need.
This 22 piece set includes the following items:
One of each, except the steak knives, as noted
2 1/2" Shaping knife
3 1/4" Paring knife(straight)
3 1/4" Paring knife(wavy)
4 1/2" Utility knife (wavy)
6" Boning knife (narrow flexible)
4 1/2" Steak knives (spear point, serrated)(8 of them)
5" Chef's knife (straight)
7" Santoku knife (Granton Blade)
8" Chef's knife (straight)
8" Carving knife
8 1/4" Bread knife (serrated)
10 1/4" Slicer knife (Granton Blade)
25 slot cutlery block
From the box: The knives are made of high carbon no stain steel with a unique blade finish unlike any in the industry. All blades are conically ground for ease of cutting and won't discolor or corrode. All edges are laser tested.Textured slip resistant handles are hygienic and dishwasher safe. NSF (National Sanitary Foundation) approved. Made in Switzerland. Lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defects.
Now, from my kitchen:
The packaging is beautiful! Each of the large knives comes in it's own plastic sleeve case. Impressive as a gift.
The knives are VERY sharp right out of the box, and required almost no pressure to use. A fantastic benefit for those of us with hand issues.
Having just harvested the last of the summer tomatoes, that was the first item to try the knifes on. We used the Santoku, the utility knife and the smaller chef's knife, just playing with them. They all sliced the tomatoes paper thin. (We had some great, crispy fried green tomatoes!) We used the bread knife on bagels and focaccia bread, both sliced perfectly with almost no effort.Read more ›
I figured that the usefulness of each item would become apparent as I got to know the set. They're there for a reason right? An expert must have assembled this set. I was wrong. The knives that I didn't think I needed, I don't need. And having things around that you don't need and that don't provide any useful function,, or that provide the same function as something else, is actually bad. I used to have all my knives on a nice magnetic knife holder. Now I have the few knives I use on the magnet, and the rest taking up counter space in a wooden block. If you're like me and you're thinking that you should buy this set because you don't know much about knives and you're secretly hoping that once you hold the 8-inch chef's knife in one hand and the 10-inch in the other hand, you'll be like "Ohhh I get it now..." then do not buy this set. It won't happen.
That said, I'm conflicted in how I want to rate the set. I want to give it 1 star because there were a few poor items, a few redundant items, a few confusing items that I've never used, it's overpriced for the few good non-redundant items you get, and I honestly would not buy it again or recommend it to most people. But the redundant items and the confusing items were my fault, and the poor quality items don't drop it to 1 star. The description of the set wasn't wrong. I bought something hoping that it would turn out to be useful, rather than buying something that I knew would be useful.
So I will review the set as it stands on its own, which I feel is 3 stars.Read more ›
