  • The R H Forschner by Victorinox Chef's Knife features high carbon, stainless steel blade, hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again, so the knife can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. Victorinox handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension. They provide a natural fit. A good heft and comfortable, positive grip are indications of a well-made knife. Although cutlery steel is naturally sanitary, materials and construction details of the handle minimize crevices what would offer hospitality to bacteria.

    Pros - Good weight, good edge, nice ergonomics
    Cons - Perhaps a little too sharp? Blade isn't broad enough (personal preference)
    I bought this knife on Saturday and it arrived from FedEx today, straight out of the box the knife was sharp, and I mean really sharp, sharper than both my G-2 Global and my J.A Henckels Professional 'S' Chef's knives (both are quite a fair few years old), and for only £28 on the Nisbets website, that's good enough for me.

    Decided to test it out whilst making some turkey stroganoff, first impressions were that the knife feels good in the hand, the blade is a little longer than what I'm used to and it's not as broad as the knife I usually use (J.A Henckels), but the rosewood handle has such a nice feel to it, I think I'll be using this one quite a bit more than I would of expected.

    like I said in the cons, it is, for me, a tiny bit too sharp, maybe because the edge on my Henckels is fairly worn from being passed down so many times and been in so many kitchens, but this is the first time I've cut myself with a chefs knife and it was by just scraping the top of my fingers by accident.

    Anyway, I highly recommend the Rosewood series of Victorinox to anyone, especially students, good, cheap knives.

    No such thing as to sharp.It has been proven over and over again you are more apt to cut yourself with a dull knife then a sharp one as a dull blade skids.
