This is one of those knives.
I haven't been able to determine whether this knife is forged or stamped. The price makes me think it must be stamped, but the Victorinox site implies it's forged. No matter--either way, this is a fantastic knife.
It weighs a bit less than my Calphalon 8" chef's knife, and while I don't think the Calphalon is too heavy--many people do--I find that the Fibrox knife just feels better over the long haul--easier to manuever and control. It doesn't have a traditional bolster (another reason I wonder if it was stamped) but I find that it makes little or no difference--it's so well-balanced that gripping the front of the handle is perfectly adequate for control. (And you know what? The fibrox handle is very, very comfortable.)
Sharp? Yes, very. The reviewer who found hers to be dull must have had a knife that was damaged in some way, or somehow got past quality control, because out of the box this knife was exceeded in sharpness only by my Shun santoku.
Over the last two days, I've used this knife to trim and cube chuck steak and Boston butt, chop kale, slice chorizo, and dice roasted red peppers. I used it to carve our turkey at Thanksgiving, and it's equally at home doing a chiffonade of basil or dicing carrots. At this price, I'm likely to buy duplicates to keep both at my parent's and in-law's houses for when I cook there, because it's rapidly becoming the knife I can't work without in the kitchen.
Yes, I paid more for that santoku, but I think I like this knife better.
Update on this review: I was beyond the Amazon 30-day return period, but Victorinox was more than happy to replace it, emphasizing that all their products have a lifetime guarantee.
Sounds like something a married couple would say eh??? I don't feel I can add any more positive-ness to this knife but here I go. The reviews don't lie people this is a great knife, vary usable hardness, sharpens well, has not even begun to fade or rust, the handle is perfect for someone with large hands or small hands, the blade has a nice fine taper to the back of the blade (no multiple sharpening angles which I hate!!!), on and on it's just a good knife... I got this knife right when it hit the market and glad I did. I've recently ordered a new one as a valentine gift to a certain someone(:D). I would give them mine but how would we knife fight as a couple? LOL!!!
I truly don't think I'm going to be buying another one unless:
A. It get's stolen or lost.
B. It get's so old the handle dry rots.
C. I have to defend myself with it and I break it off in an intruders rib cage.
D. I'm drunk and take out in the back one day to bang on concrete (lol).
E. I accidentally leave it soaking in meritic acid.
(are you getting the picture???)

Very very sharp. Accidentally cut myself and didn't even realize I was cut. Handle is very cheap plastic and feels unbalanced but it definitely does its job very well.Published 4 days ago by Robert W.
