RH Forschner by Victorinox is the knife of choice for professionals and consistently receives high accolades in product testing. This best-in-class commercial grade cutlery is now available for home use. RH Forschner by Victorinox knives feature high carbon, stainless steel blades, 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. Victorinox handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension. They provide a natural fit. A good heft and comfortable, positive grip are indications of a well-made knife. A sure-grip handle with a finger guard is valuable feature since the handle inevitably gets greasy, wet, or both. Although cutlery steel is naturally sanitary, materials and construction details of the handle minimize crevices what would offer hospitality to bacteria.
Six of these handsome steak knives from R.H. Forschner by Victorinox come tucked in this press-fit storage box. Each shows a rosewood handle in traditional triple-rivet styling, and a five-inch, serrated blade stamped out of high-carbon, no-stain steel that is hand-finished in Switzerland. Unlike many stamped knives, these have a full tang for superior strength and balance, and the sharp edge slices through a fine steak without tearing. Forschner recommends washing the knives by hand even though they're dishwasher-safe, and covers the set with a lifetime warranty against defects. --Ann Bieri
