Product Description

Product Description

From the inventors of the famous Swiss Army knife comes a line of fine kitchen tools designed for accomplished and aspiring chefs at work or in the home. Each blade from the stamped line of cutlery is expertly made in Switzerland from high-carbon stainless steel and undergoes a special tempering process for an edge that can be resharpened again and again. The result is a knife that can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. Each blade is conical ground throughout its length and depth, which results in a wider break point with less risk of the blade breaking and less resistance for easier cutting, and then laser tested to ensure optimum cutting power and durability. The blades are paired with classic, beautiful rosewood handles riveted for durability and designed to minimize wrist tension while offering a comfortable grip. The Victorinox stamped collection with rosewood handles is an extensive range with open-stock pieces as well as handy and versatile sets.

Six of these handsome steak knives from Victorinox come tucked in this press-fit storage box. Each shows a rosewood handle in traditional triple-rivet styling, and a five-inch, serrated blade stamped out of high-carbon, no-stain steel that is hand-finished in Switzerland. Unlike many stamped knives, these have a full tang for superior strength and balance, and the sharp edge slices through a fine steak without tearing. Victorinox recommends washing the knives by hand even though they're dishwasher-safe, and covers the set with a lifetime warranty against defects.

From the Manufacturer

Who is Victorinox?
Although Victorinox is known the world over as the creator of the Original Swiss Army Knife, the company started out in 1884 as a cutlery workshop. By the time company creator Karl Elsener delivered his first pocket knife to the Swiss Army, his cutlery business was already booming. Over the next century, Victorinox cutlery became a top-rated choice among professionals worldwide, with over 300 blades to offer.

Victorinox knives have regularly appeared as highly ranked and recommended kitchen tools in Cook’s Illustrated, Men’s Health, The Cincinnati Enquirer, New York Magazine, and Natural Health, just to name a few. In 2009, the company announced a partnership with professional chef, Daniel Humm, of Eleven Madison Park in New York City. In addition, building on the success of its cutlery business, Victorinox has brought all the same quality and expertise to a wider range of products and accessories, including other kitchen tools, pocket tools, watches, luggage, and clothing.

Who is R.H. Forschner?
Victorinox had been a staple in European commercial cutlery for over 50 years when approached by New York’s R.H. Forschner, known since 1855 as a builder of scales for butchers, to be their sole cutlery supplier. The two companies joined forces in 1937, and R.H. Forschner subsequently became North America’s dominant professional brand, as ubiquitous in the bustling meatpacking plants of the Midwest as it is in the gleaming, four-star restaurant kitchens of Midtown Manhattan.

As a division of Victorinox/Swiss Army Brands, R.H. Forschner marketed cutlery under the brand name “RH Forschner by Victorinox” and distributed to the commercial, food service, and retail trade classes. That brand has been considered a top choice of professionals worldwide with over 300 styles of blades bearing the R.H. Forschner name. However, in 2009, in conjunction with Victorinox’s 125th anniversary, the company, Victorinox Swiss Army, Inc., has decided to remove the “RH Forschner” name from all blades. Blades thenceforth only include the “Victorinox” name.

What is a stamped blade?
A stamped knife can usually be identified by the absence of a bolster. Stamped blades are cut into their shapes from cold-rolled pieces of steel and then ground, tempered, and sharpened. Creating them requires many less steps than forging and results in lighter, narrower blades. Some professionals prefer the thicker, heavier forged blades, but many pros, who spend much of their day cutting and slicing, enjoy a lighter knife since it’s less fatiguing and easier to manipulate at speed.

Stamped knives are easier to produce and therefore less expensive. They perform very well and can approach the quality of a forged blade, but not the weight or feel. Victorinox manufactures a complete range of stamped blades with classic, beautiful Rosewood handles and they are considered among the greatest values in the knife industry.

What knives do I need to own?
Knife choice or selection is determined by many factors--size, function, style, and preference. The most important factor is function. Different knives have different uses. It is important to use the proper knife for a specific task, since proper knife selection and the use of a proper-sized, sharp knife make for safe cutting. General kitchen tasks and the knife to use for them are as follows:

Paring: The most common to own and use, a paring knife is generally for small cutting jobs and peeling of vegetables or fruit. The blade size is usually from three to four inches. Choose the shape and size to fit your hand. Since this is one of the more versatile knives, owning more than one is recommended.

Chef's: The most important tool and essential to every cook, a chef‘s knife is most often used in a rocking method to mince, dice, and chop vegetables and herbs. This one is known as the chef’s best friend.

Slicer: Most commonly used to slice meats, poultry, and seafood, the slicer is an important companion to any host or hostess.

Boning: As its name suggests, a boning knife is used to trim or remove meat and fish from the bone.

Bread: Designed with a special edge, a bread knife makes easy work of cutting through crusty bread, pastries, or any item with a crust and a soft interior.

Fillet: Most often used by pros and seasoned home chefs, the fillet knife is used to fillet meat and fish.

Cleaver: An important addition to any collection, a cleaver is often used to cut or chop through bones.

Santoku: This knife combines the features of a cleaver with a chef's knife. The curved blade helps the rocking motion used for chopping, and the wide blade works well for scooping sliced food off a cutting board and for crushing garlic. The santoku can also be used to slice meat and has a narrow spine for making thin cuts.

Utility: An all-purpose knife often referred to as a sandwich knife, the utility knife peels and slices fruits and vegetables, and even carves small meats.

Shaping: With its curved blade, a shaping knife is great for small precision cuts where control is essential, such as peeling, trimming, or garnishing.

What are the different knife edges and what do they do?
Straight: The vast majority of Victorinox knives come with a straight or fine edge. This means it has a perfect taper along the blade and no serrations. It is designed to cut without tearing or shredding.

Serrated: An edge designed with small, jagged teeth along the edge.

Scalloped: A blade with waves along the edge generally used to cut breads with a hard crust and soft interior, as well as tougher-skinned fruits and vegetables.

Granton: This edge has hollowed-out grooves or dimples on the sides of the blade. These grooves fill with the fat and juices of the product being cut, allowing for thin, even cuts without tearing. Even with the grooves, these are still straight-edge knives and can be honed with a sharpening steel.

How should I care for my cutlery?
After use, knives should not be allowed to soak in water. The best practice is to hand wash and dry them immediately. This is especially true if they have been used on fruit or salty foods, which may cause some staining, even on stainless steel. Most knives require very little maintenance and it is worth the effort to protect your investment.

Though Victorinox knives are dishwasher safe, this is strongly discouraged. The dishwasher’s agitation may cause damage. Additionally, harsh detergents can be harmful and cause pitting and spotting on the blades. The handles may also discolor and develop a white film with constant use of the dishwasher. Plus, intense heat associated with dishwashers is not good for the temper of the blade.

How do I keep my knives sharp?
All quality knives require proper maintenance to keep them in perfect cutting shape. The best of edges will quickly dull if it strikes metal, glass, or Formica. A wooden cutting board makes the best cutting surface. And, if a slip occurs, a proper cutting board is safer for the user. Frequent use of a Victorinox sharpening steel will keep blades in tip top working condition. All straight-edge knives need steeling to keep their edges.

How to "Steel" a Knife
1. Hold the steel firmly in your left hand with the guard positioned to stop the blade should it slip.
2. Hold the knife in your right hand and place on top part of steel as shown.
3. Raise back of blade one-eighth inch.
4. Now, moving the blade only, draw it across the steel in an arching curve, pivoted at your wrist. The blade tip should leave the steel about two-thirds of the way down.
5. Repeat the same action with the Blade on the bottom side of the steel. Always maintain the same pressure and angle on both sides of the steel.
6. Repeat five or six times.

When a sharpening steel no longer does the job, it’s time to take the knife to a qualified knife sharpener who will place a new edge on it. This, along with use of the sharpening steel, will give you many years of sharp, safe blades.

Please note that electric knife sharpeners can be harmful. They have to be used carefully as they remove too much metal, can harm the temper of the blade, and most important can change the factory-applied edge angle.

How should I store my knives?
Safety is the biggest concern of storage, both to the user and to protect the knife's edge. Choices include a knife magnet, knife block, drawer insets, and also individual knife protectors.

I hate crappy steak knives. Have you ever noticed that once stuff wanders into your kitchen it is hard to get rid of it: that old set of dishes, cutlery from college, gadgets that have long since outlived their usefulness? I still had some old serrated knives with plastic handles that I owned since college, but unlike my nice kitchen knives, somehow these would never disappear. With great hopes of displacing by dilution, I decided to give these a try. The wood handles are beautiful, the tang is adequate, but does not feel hefty (sometimes I like that). I would say they feel more like a surgical instrument, very sharp, very precise, and well-balanced. The wood handles are beautiful even after two years of use (hand wash only) despite the fact that I have not oiled the wood regularly. If you can stomach the price, they will not disappoint.

These knives are a great value. We have LOVED using them and they look great in our Wusthof knife block. Cut steaks like butter and we loved the serrated edges (exactly what we were looking for.)

I wash them by hand, as that is what the manufacturer recommended. So I cannot testify to how they will hold up in the dishwasher.

Very nice knives but the rosewood handles are rough. I treated them with Clapham's beeswax and now the handles are fine, even after multiple washing. But it's odd that the handles aren't ready to use.

Bought these to replace 15 year old Cutco serrateds. Blades are excellent quality and they cut like a dream. Would have liked a little more heft in the handles, to give a bit more of a quality feel. But on the whole I am happy.

I like how the knives cut, but I don't care for the roughness of the handles. They are not pleasant to the touch.

These knives are wonderful. They have a good feel and balance, and they are almost too sharp to be allowed into a home kitchen. Besides easily cutting meat, they are great for boiled eggs, tomatoes and other soft veggies. They are lightweight, but they don't have a sense of "cheapness". The blades are solidly fixed in the handles and can handle heavy cutting, such as slicing the stem off an ear of corn. Overall, I am quite satisfied. They may be more expensive than other sets, but then, "You get what you pay for." Highly recommended.

I ordered two different stes of these knives and they were delivered before the promise date. I've used these knives before in my restaurants and they are amazing. Again, the delivery service was great. Thanks so much.
