The handles themselves are weighted, well rounded,and called an ergonomic design. They are a little longer than most and raised towards the rear. This allows the heel of the palm, to assist more in cutting and in theory, reduce fatigue in extended use. They fit all hands well but those with chubby or large hands have found their knife. I found them roundish and comfortable but didn't notice a huge difference between these and the classic style.
The bolster (metal between the handle and blade) doesn't extend to the bottom of the blade. This is an advantage for some slicing operations and doesn't give the knife that worn out look after repeated sharpening.
The 20cm (8") Chef's knife has the largest handle of the set and weighs in at 293 grams; with balance on the handle side of the bolster. This is close to perfect for a heavier professional knife, where the weight can assist in cutting. Interestingly enough at the halfway length of the blade, 10mm in from the edge, the blade thickness measured 1.1 mm. Just about a perfect balance between a thin (for ease of cutting) but weighty blade. I am impressed with this particular knife. The carver weighs 206 grams and the Santoku 214 grams and both feel good in the hand.Read more ›
1- 6-inch boning was missing from set
2- The other knife I received the brand Forschner instead of Victorinox
your Answer: I'm sorry to hear 6-inch boning was missing from set. I'm not able to replace individual pieces from a set. I understand you've received the brand Forschner instead of Victorinox.

Victorinox Forged is better than just plain old Victorinox. That's why they cost more. The steel is high carbon, ice tempered, and better than plain old stainless steel. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Gagewyn
