Product Description

Victorinox, makers of the Original Swiss Army Knife, has been crafting fine cutlery since the later 1800's. The Victorinox master cutlers have applied their unique ingenuity and techniques to design the highest quality, forged cutlery line. This fine cutlery is hot-drop forged and ice tempered by master forgers in Solingen, Germany exclusively for Victorinox, then shipped to Victorinox in Switzerland for application of their famous proprietary sharp edge and rigid quality control finishing. The result is beautifully balanced, perfectly weighted full tang construction, an intuitively engineered comfortable handle, a high carbon, no stain, high polished forged steel blade with an edge that retains its razor sharpness. 8-piece Knife Block Set includes: 3.5-inch Parer for precision cutting; 6-inch Boning Knife for precise control when separating meat from the bone; 8-inch Slicer for caring neat and even slices; 8-inch Chef's Knife for practically any cutting job; 9-inch Bread Knife for cutting through hard crust or peel without squashing the tender middle inside; Sharpening Steel for keeping knives razor sharp; Kitchen Shear for opening packaging, trimming dough, snipping herbs, even opening bottles; 9-slot Hardwood Block to store and protect knives and has room to add 2 more knives to your collection.

To start with; Unlike some other reviewers, I like the wooden knife block. It is weighty, well balanced, not easily knocked over and has wide slots for the knives. To my eyes it looks balanced and fits well into a kitchen counter corner. The set also includes other practical kitchen items, such as the high quality steel, a santoku knife, a boning knife and good quality kitchen scissors/shears. These are expensive and quite useful items, often missing in other maker's sets.

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.

Knives are well made and they cut nicely. It's good range of knife types that you will actually use. The blade's finish will mar easily even if you use something like a Scott scouring sponge. This is probably true for most other knives so not really an issue. The block is indeed terrible. The knife slots and overall block quality just isn't there, but then again I don't buy a knife set for the block. I'll probably get a magnet knife strip instead at some point.

I've lived in Europe most of my life and I know a good knife. These are excellent quality knifes! However I was quite disappointed by the quality of the block and the cheap looking emblem on the front. Doesn't even look like the picture on Amazon... and of course it wasn't made in Europe.

I ordered these knives and they arrived promptly. The knives themselves are very nice, but a little heavy. The block however is a total piece of crap! It has a thin layer of lacquer that had the edges worn away where the knives are slotted, likely from shipping. The small knives fall over because the block gives no support to them. The slot is too big. I returned them and will likely get Wusthof because, after looking at them in the store, their block is solid oak. I have always liked Victorinox but please step up your game and spring for a real block when your customers drop $300+ on knives.

I' m not happy, because I had 2 problem with the set and I sent this information to Amazon:

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.
