This is a spiritual successor to the Victorinox Swiss Classic of 10 years ago, which is now priced fairly but no longer has a compelling price/performance ratio. Buy this and an AccuSharp 001 Knife Sharpener and you'll spend about twenty bucks to have enough knife for the next decade. I have a big collection of kitchen knifes, when I'm cooking outside my home this is the one I take when there's a 2% chance I'll forget the knife... I know any prep work I do will still be easy, the knife will still be very good quality, and if I loose it, I wont shed a tear.
The handle is a little chunky for my taste, but the knife is a workhorse that will last through years of heavy use with occasional sharpening.
This knife is a good deal.
If you're close to broke, but enjoy cooking, this knife will treat you as well as a knife costing 10x as much.

This is an incredible value. I do a lot of knife work in my home kitchen and I use this knife a lot. I can't find one bad thing to say about it. FWIW I keep the edge sharp using a 1200 grit synthetic hone and a 5000 grit hone. I have a 500 grit hone but I never let the edge get chipped so I haven't needed to go back down to the 500 grit hone. I also use a 4 sided pasted strop to remove the fin that is left at the intersection of the two bevels after honing on the synthetic hones, using 3 different grits of paste on the 4 sided strop

this knife seems to hold an edge fairly well but I'm not hard on my knives and I know how to use them w/o excess force. I also have this makers 6" boning knife, used mainly to de-bone chicken thighs. Both knives came seriously sharp!, yet use the knife much and you'll need to touch up the edge sooner or later

I bought this chef knife to replace a German made knife that was given to me over 20 years ago, and I only replaced that knife as one of the two rivets used to affix the handle to the blade was working loose. Before buying this knife I was looking at $60-$80 Japanese knives. So glad I bought this one instead, and used the left over money to fund other needs. This is a good chef knife. Sure, you can buy better knives but this one will do anything a more expensive knife will

It may not look sexy, but it is beautifully balanced with an ergonomically-shaped and textured handle that makes it easy to manipulate. I feel very secure using this, even though it's a pretty long blade and I have just average-sized women's hands. Haven't tested it's dishwasher safety (as I'm several decades in the habit of washing my knives by hand), but could see the advantage come Thanksgiving when things get slippery and greasy. Exceptional deal.

Very very sharp knife!

For any of you who are beginner chefs or at home chefs... do yourself a favor and never buy from stores like Target, Walmart, etc... don't be fooled and get those sets with the knife block if you seriously want to use a knife for cooking.

A safe knife is a well sharpened and honed knife. Dull blades and weak flimsy blades are the worse.

We use this in our commercial kitchens at our restaurant too because no one steals them.

Perfectly balance and more than does the job!

This is a personal preference, but I like thinner knives. I have Victorinox Chef knife and its a bit thinner than this one. Also handle did not feel good in my hand. I like to pinch knives with my thumb and index at the base of the blade, and keep the handle in the other three fingers. The way the handle is on this knife is, it felt a bit awkward and uncomfortable.

Amazing knife. Excellent size, just bigger than your average. Excellent handle shape, sits nice and high so you don't bust your knuckles. If your wanting a high quality knife, and aesthetics aren't what your shopping for, you will be very pleased. I have this, the bread knife, and my favorite, the 10" chef's. Cant say enough good things about them.

I have given this product 4 stars since I have just received it will rate again after a few weeks of use . The knife arrived quick and was relatively sharp , I have already put it on a wet rock and got it razor sharp now . Chopped some onions and peppers worked great the handle feels great in my hand I'm a large man at 6ft9 and it's hard to find knifes that work well in my large hands . I have owned this brand of knifes for 6 years they held a edge great hoping this one does also

Sharp edge, but handle's a bit bulky for my woman size medium hand, and the blade seems a bit thin. Seems to cut fine, but not agile in the hand, will become a backup knife - for the cost that's fine.
