Be good to your knives and they’ll be good to you. Following these simple guidelines will ensure that you get the longest life out of your knife!
Victorinox Swiss Army recommends washing all knives by hand. For best results, hand wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately.
While Fibrox Pro knives are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing as dishwashers are designed to spray water at a relatively high pressure, which can jostle the silverware and cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge.
For optimum performance, knives should be honed after every couple of uses. Proper and frequent use of a honing steel will keep your knives sharper and performing at their best.
In 1937 Victorinox began selling cutlery in America through a Connecticut distributor called R.H. Forschner & Co. A well-known manufacturer of butcher scales, Forschner soon became the exclusive U.S. distributor for Victorinox knives, and was the name by which Victorinox knives were known.

I don't know what happened to Victorinox Fibrox chef knife since the rave reviews on ATK and Amazon site, but my knife is not the quality of everyone's ratings.
I do not recommend this knife.
However, I don't think the knife itself was the problem, I honestly think the knife I received was used. When I took the knife out of the packaging, I could immediately see hundreds of small and medium nicks on the blade and the the knife had several large tarnish spots.
From the other experiences I've had with both Amazon and Victorinox, I really think Amazon just sold me a used/returned knife
My love affair with this knife continues. Last night,at first I thought there was something wrong with my potatoes because the knife sliced through them as if they were butter but with nice clean edges. Oh my- simply impressive. My love just keeps growing. However, I am still disappointed with the company. I have gotten over the fact that the quality of the handle does not fit the quality of the knife. However everytime I put this beautiful knife into the cheap bendable plastic sheath that the company calls a " knife guard", I cringe. It is not washable on the inside and is more like temporary packaging.
Now, if the manufacturer reads these reviews, this is my advice to you: My other favorite knife is a gorgeous green plastic paring knife from Kuhn Rikon. It is sharp and designed as a total package. It comes with a heavy-duty molded plastic knife guard that is a joy to behold. It has a well-defined guard on the sheath. The sheath has 3 holes in it to faciltate cleaning. Even the plastic handle is nice. I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about this knife. If Kuhn Rikon can put together this kind of knife and shealth package for $7.00 retail price, I suspect you can do a bit better with the handle and sheath guard for your more expensive chef knife.
For me, I have decided to search AMAZON to see if I can purchase a sheath for this knife separately.
Ok, I have gone full circle on this knife. I went out looking for a knife sheath and after all my complaining above I find that Victorinox sells sheaths especially made for this knife. While I was out there, I also read more reviews ( there are thousands of positive reviews) and many experienced chefs indicate that the knife handle is nice and does not slip as a smoother handle might when it gets wet. Well, the lightbulb went on. I think they are right. I also went looking for their paring knife and again found an incredible number of glowing reviews. Also found a smaller chef's knife. I am hooked. So I bought one of each of them and another sheath to go with each as well as a glove to protect my fingers now that I will have all of these beautiful and sharp knives!!
I guess you could say I have gone ga ga over these knives and so I had no choice but to raise this knife 5 stars. I am simply in LOVE. LOL
Thank you Vitorinox!

A minor cons is that it came encased in a plastic package with no blade guard but that's just nitpicking.
Most importantly, the blade comes hair-shavingly sharp out of the box (I've ordered several for myself and family/friends as gifts). It's not the hardest steel, which makes sense for a chef's knife so it's very easy to sharpen. I recommend a Spyderco Sharpmaker if you want to sharpen this knife (not a sharpening rod, despite what you've seen Gordon Ramsay do on TV).
Overall, a chef's knife doesn't get better than this-- at least not at this price point. If you're a student, young adult or just a frugal person who wants a quality kitchen knife, this is the only choice out there in my opinion.
The everyday for all purposes knife every chef should have.
Recently though I've became vegan, which forced me to cook more. And I needed a good chef's knife mainly for all the veggies I'm cutting. My brother is a cook and he told me this one was good for the price, so I purchased it.
Holy macaroni. It's very hard to explain how much this knife is WORTH THE MONEY! Everytime I cut something, it just glides right through it. I don't even need to put any pressure on it. I used to have a hard time cutting potatoes, now it's just so satisfying and nice. I couldn't be more happy.
I always clean it by hand and dry it, as written on the package.
This knife exceeded my expectations and finally gave me a taste of using a mid range knife instead of the cheap knives I was used to using my whole life. The first thing that I noticed was the blade quality. The blade is not too thick, but is very strong. On top of that, it shipped sharp and was immediately ready for use after unpacking. I still recommend sharpening it some more though.
The major con for this knife is the plastic handle. It looks like a cheap plastic molded handle and has an ugly matte texture. Although it feels pretty good in the hand, It feels like it will eventually fall apart.
This said, I am very satisfied with this knife, and I feel that it is well worth the $50 I paid for it.
The edge was OK (not great) for the first few slices but turned almost completely dull in no time cutting nothing but vegetables and chicken breast on a soft plastic cutting board.
Also it felt a bit light and uncomfortable in my hand.
Perhaps we got a defective one, not sure, in any case - the seller accepted a return and refunded us, so feel free to try your luck.
This doesn't disappoint - I'm really impressed with how well it works. The stock is fairly thin with a slight distal taper toward the tip, fully flat ground, and is ground at a very steep angle, all of which make it glide very well through vegetables, fish, and meat. The steel isn't the greatest - it seems to be made of the same stuff the average swiss army knife is made of, which wouldn't be surprising - but it takes an edge extremely easily and holds it well enough for whatever prep work I have to do at any given time. It also doesn't seem prone to rust after being left in the sink, and I don't have to worry about damaging the handle by leaving it soaking in water like I would with wood-handled knives. The handle is surprisingly comfortable and fits my large-ish sized hands really well - no hot spots or blisters after extended use.
