This Victorinox knife is probably the best choice for most people, and certainly by far the best dollar for dollar value of any other knife. I have purchased this knife several times as gifts for friends who I knew would appreciate and respect a good kitchen knife.
Vicorinox: THIS KNIFE
There are not many knives in the $40 range. This Victorinox has a great blade, but in my opinion does not feel very satisfying in my hand due to what feels like a flimsy handle (although it feels flimsy, it is actually of high quality construction). I prefer a knife with more weight. I'm not saying that the Victorinox is not well balanced, but overall it is a light weight knife, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but a preference. Many people will not mind or even prefer a light weight knife, but to me it makes if feel cheap and is not as fun to cut with.
My high end knife is a $100 Santoku. The blade is probably very close to or even equal to the Victorinox, but the handle is fuller and heavier and it feels so much better in my hand. The weight makes the cutting feel more effortless in my opinion. That being said, I definitely enjoy this knife, but it is not $60 better than the Victorinox. That feeling I prefer comes at a high premium.
Low End Knives:
Low end knives can be a gamble - 2 cases:
Case #1) I recently purchased a Kleve santoku. The weight of this knife feels great, but the blade itself was garbage in my opinion. Cutting with this knife was not enjoyable at all. I returned it promptly.
Case #2) I received a Chicago Cutlery knife set as a gift about 10 years ago. The santoku knife in that set is amazing and at the time, could be purchased by itself for ~$20. The thing is, I didn't know how amazing that knife was until after I had owned both the Shun and the Victorinox. I prefer the Shun first, the Chicago second, and the Victorinox last. They are all fantastic knives.
I suppose my point of sharing these different scenarios is to say that you cannot judge a knife by its price tag.
Anyways that is my $.02. I hope it was helpful.
+ Handle is actually decent. It feels cheap only if you are a believer in plastic is cheap and metal is quality. The plastic is easier to hold than say a Cutco handle.
+ Lightweight (feels like a toy knife, a badass toy knife made of lasers)
+ Very good quality for the price. I got it for 26.99 through Amazon. It makes my 100 dollar CUTCO knife feel like a hammer with sporks glued to it.
- Blade portion is thin at the top so don't be putting pressure with your other hand. It will hurt.
- People who don't know better will think you don't have much money and can't afford a snazzier knife. Just buy a really nice cutting board with the money you saved on the knife.
- Accidentally touch your other hand with this blade? Blood. Blood everywhere. Dinner is ruined. Go get some takeout.
In the end, I purchased:
Victorinox 40521 10-Inch Chef's Knife, Black Fibrox Handle
Victorinox Fibrox 7-Inch Granton Edge Santoku Knife
Victorinox 5-Inch Mini-Chef's Knife with Fibrox Handle
Victorinox Honing Steel 12-Inch Round Regular Cut, Black Plastic Handle
Henckels 20-Slot Super Knife Storage Block
All of these products are very highly reviewed, and together they form an excellent introductory knife collection at a reasonable price.
As a vegetarian with a penchant for root vegetables, I am using this knife almost constantly. The granton edge enables me to dice through fields of potatoes, rutabagas, celeriac, and parsnip with ease. The construction is top-notch and the Fibrox handle ensures that it is easy to clean. As is the case with other Victorinox knives, the cutting edge is amazingly sharp and, when cared for properly with handwashing and regular honing on a quality steel, it maintains this edge extraordinarily well. At this price, the casual at-home cooking hobbyist is unlikely to find a better deal.
