The R H Forschner by Victorinox Bread Knife features high carbon, stainless steel blade, 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.
Top Customer Reviews
1) I love the offset curved handle
2) it is insanely sharp, the knife just effortlessly passes thru the bread. I've even used it to slash my loaves successfully because it is that cleanly sharp.
3) my slices are lovely....I don't have to space them one inch apart in order to get nice slices. I can do thin slices and still get nice slices.
4) it fits in my knife block
5) I even tried this on a very crusty artisan boule, and it went right thru.
6) it usually cuts quite straight but for very tough crusted large round breads than require almost the full length of the blade to cut, you might get slight wandering of the blade (i.e. Maybe finish slightly wider at base of slice than where your blade started), but I don't care. It cuts, and cuts beautifully and I didn't have to spend all the money I save in a year baking my own bread, on a knife to cut it.
7) it washes up in dishwasher nicely....tough plastic handle, nicely weighted, but it isn't super heavy either. Just what I expected. Better weighted than my old one in my opinion.
I was considering the 10.25 inch Victorinox 47547. Before I would buy it, I wanted to read a lot of Amazon reviews. Two things in those otherwise great reviews caught my attention: the blade "was not too rigid," and it "was sharpened on only one side." (One reviewer said that the knife being sharpened on only one side caused the blade to drift offline during a cut--and I thought I was a perfectionist!).
This "offline" complaint drove me to seriously consider the Wustoff (the $126 model--so I wouldn't have to put up with those aggravating offline cuts). But before I spent that much money, I went to see one at a local store. Lo and behold, the Wustoff blade--the $126 one--is sharpened on only one side! (My guess is, all wavy-edge, serrated knife blades are sharpened this way... so much for perfect cuts.)
Once I found out about one-sided sharpening on all the blades I was considering, the $26 Victorinox models were looking very good. And because I've noticed that my knuckles get in the way when I slice things, I ended up getting the Victorinox 9-Inch Wavy Edge Bread Knife, with the offset handle. Its blade is plenty thick and stiff, and VERY sharp.
I like this knife very much. I now enjoy slicing bread without having to manipulate a straight knife because of my knuckles. And at this price, I can afford to buy a new knife every time one gets dull.
PS: My freehand, thin bread slices are an even thickness from top-to-bottom and side-to-side.
Six-Months-Later: The first time I used the knife on something other than bread, a raw potato, lo-and-behold the blade did drift offline as I cut; it pushed away from the sharpened side and tended to slice the potato at an angle (the faster I cut, the greater the angle). It is also very noticeable when halving a watermelon. If you try, it can be controlled to some degree, but it is much easier to just use a regular blade for these items. (I had not really noticed the effect when slicing bread--I think it did not happen as much because bread is so much softer.)
The off set handle, curved blade and deep sharp teeth produce a tool which is heaven to use.
I resisted buying this knife for a long while, despite all the good reviews, because I figured the low price was a sign of poor quality. I'm just glad I got over my price snobbery.
I will likely have to sand/file down the burr myself...
