Here's how I made a sandwich a few minutes ago. Use knife to slice large rye bread. Use knife to slice some corned beef into slices so thin you can't pick them up with your fingers. Go ahead and use same knife to swab some mayo onto the bread. Use knife to slice sandwich in half (duh). Use knife to pick up two sandwich halves from cutting board. That's five uses for one sandwich, and not one other utensil needed.
The edge is still deadly sharp.
The Fibrox handle gives a good, solid grip.
The curved edge allows you to cut through only the very center part of a tough bottom crust. And if you draw the knife straight across, say, a slice of soft bread, the curve causes the knife to act as a guillotine as it enters the leading edge of the victim, which reduces tearing.
Although I haven't tested it because my little brother does all the fancy knife-work at family get-togethers, my guess is that this knife would carve a turkey or a smallish emu just dandily.
At a total length of 15 inches, this will likely be the longest knife in your collection, so I'm not saying it would be your first choice for slicing an olive. But if you can learn to handle a knife this long, it does a lot more than slice bread, and it does it well.
My only complaint is that the top edge of the blade is also curved, so you can't use it to scrape a cutting board of its contents. But maybe there's a design reason for that that I don't know about.
I wish I had owned this knife 20 years ago.Read more ›
The blade of the knife is really flexible! That's not a good thing if you're slicing anything that's at all difficult to slice, like crusty breads. The knife just bends and flexes as you cut, so it's really hard to make a straight cut. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that the blade is only ground on one side, so tends to drift to one side while cutting. If the blade were more rigid (like my chef's knife and paring knife), I could probably just force it to go straight, but since it isn't, I can't. So I end up with very uneven slices of bread.
The blade was also not finished very well. There were visible burrs on the edge of the blade! I couldn't believe that Victorinox would leave such huge burrs on their product! They usually put a mirror polish on their blades, so there's really no reason they couldn't have cleaned up the edge of this knife. I took care of them myself, but I shouldn't have had to when buying a knife from a company like Victorinox.
I'm going go keep using it, because it does work and I don't want to spend the money to replace it right now, but I would definitely not recommend it and will not be purchasing another one.
After using this knife for a year and a half or so, I've come to like it a little better than I did when I first got it. I stand by my comments about it being flexible, and about the burrs on the blade, but in the past year I've used *plenty* of more expensive bread knives that didn't cut nearly as well as this one.Read more ›
People not used to handling large knives should consider the 8" version of this knife as it takes practice to hadle such a long cutting edge.
Although the blade is very thin and a bit flexible it's not flimsy.
I have owned a Forschner Fibrox handled chef's knife for years and it's my everyday knife. This bread knife is equal in quality and will become part of my standard tool kit.
These Forschner knives are the best quality for value PRODUCTS, not just knives, I've ever encountered. Buy some!
