A great all-rounder. The 8" Classic Chef's Knife can handle nearly every kitchen task imaginable, with its incredibly sharp edge and textured, ergonomic handle, each cut is like slicing through butter. This 8" Classic Chef's Knife is preferred due to its razor sharp edge that rarely requires re-sharpening. We’ve selected the best attributes derived from their rich commercial heritage and modified them to suit the home chef. The Swiss Classic collection offers a contemporary handle, inspired by their patented Fibrox Pro line. Designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure grip, the contoured nylon handle is both lightweight and durable, making these knives seem less likes tools and more like an extension of your hand. Offering perfect balance and featuring the same world-renowned blade as found on their Fibrox Pro line, the 8" Swiss Classic Chef’s Knife provides a professional-grade tool optimized for home use. The tapered knife edge is ground in two directions to hold a sharp edge longer and can easily be brought back to its original sharpness. An all-purpose chef's knife is an essential tool in every kitchen. The 8" Swiss Classic Chef’s Knife is optimally weighted with high-quality, lightweight European steel that reduces hand and wrist fatigue, making it comfortable even after extended use in the home kitchen. Perfectly suited for dicing onions, mincing shallots, chopping herbs, crushing garlic, slicing meats of all varieties and shredding cabbage, its versatility will quickly make it your go-to knife. At 8”, this knife offers the heft needed to complete larger tasks effortlessly, while still allowing for perfect maneuverability on smaller tasks that a larger, bulkier knife may not be able to accomplish as easily. The overall shape of the blade, with a long, sloping curve, lends itself to “rocking” very well, allowing one to mince and chop with ease, while the flat spine allows you to comfortably press down on the blade when extra power is needed to slice through hard-skinned items like acorn or butternut squash. Whether a seasoned or novice home chef, Victorinox Swiss Army offers not only the right tools and the know-how, but most importantly, the confidence to achieve one’s culinary aspirations.
