Overall User Rating: Victorinox 47520 8" Chef Knife with Fibrox Handle ( 4.8 stars from 23 reviews )

    This is my go-to knife. It is strong without being heavy. Stays sharp and is extremely comfortable in the hand. This was recommended by a magazine and it definitely does not disappoint.

    Best all-around chef's knife out there. It won't set you back much, but it cuts like it did just that. It has excellent steel, a nice sturdy no-slip handle, and it is well balanced. There are more aesthetically pleasing knives out there, but not more functional. This knife will surpass all expectations, in relation to function.

    I bought this knife after reading great review on it in a magazine. I really love this knife! It is razor sharp and has a fantastic feel to it. It makes chopping up veggies effortless. I own serveral Victorinox knifes and this one does not disappoint. Very high quality knife at a low price.

    This knife is unbeatable in price and performance. The knife holds a razor sharp edge, and if it loses the edge it is very easy to sharpen. Would repurchase. My wife also loves this knife.

    I have heard about this knife over the years, and I wish it didn't take me this long to finally purchase one. This knife is the best knife I have ever used. The size is perfect and the grip of the Fibrox handle keeps your hand from sliding when you cut things with lots of moisture or grease. It is sharp and cuts very easily. It is of a very good quality. The price is right, as well. A great buy!!!

    After reading magazines rave review of this knife, I bought one. I love everything about it...it's well constructed and holds an edge. HIghly recommended! Five Stars!!!

    If you need a pretty good knife that will face a lot of abuse, this is a great one. Compared to other knives in the price range, it's very good, but compared to a $100 knife, its flaws are quite apparent. I replaced this with a Wusthof Classic, and after using that, it became clear that the Victorniox doesn't hold a sharp edge nearly as well or for as long, and the handle is much more awkward and uncomfortable. In my experience, the handle, which claims to be slip resistant, is quite slippery if you're working with something fatty or greasy. All in all, it's a great knife for the price. I'd give it 5 stars if comparing it to similarly priced knives, but only 3 stars compared to a $100 knife...so I think a 4 star overall rating is appropriate.

    I use this knife but in a different color at work. These types of knives are really great. They are easy to use and comfortable. This specific knife is great to cut through vegetables, fruits or even meats. The quality of the knife does not deteriorate and the prices on this site are the best you will find anywhere. I have looked for victorinox knives on other sites and they are way more expensive. Great prices for great products!

    Excellent knife for kitchens and cooks. Keeps a decent edge with minimal upkeep, easy to hone on steel or stone. First knife out of my roll when I am on the line. Price is reasonable enough that i dont have to worry when another cook grabs my knife while beating out the dexters that most kitchens stock as they house knives. Overall I would recommend these knives to anyone starting out in the restaurant industry, at home cooks, or house knives for kitchens.

    Another excellent product from Victorinox. This knife is the perfect size to be an all around utility knife for any kitchen. As with all Victorinox Blades they are easy to sharpen and hold an edge for a long time.

    I wanted some sharp knives and started with the 8" chief knife I used for the first time and it sliced thru the chuck roast I was preparing for supper. It was like cutting thru butter. Great knife! Lois G

    Excellent Chef's knife for general all purpose kitchen chores, does very well at chopping and dicing. Comfortable grip, maintains an edge very well, very easy to touch up with honing bar. Excellent product for the price.

    8" Chef: 5 out of 5, The chef's knife is always the most important knife in the kitchen and Victorinox does not disappoint offering an extremely sharp edge that cuts through everything I have thrown at it with ease. 8" is a great size, and the grip is perfect allowing for several different grips perfectly. I actually like the fact that it is stamped and therefore a bit thinner than a forged knife, because it allows you to make more delicate cuts in task like mincing an onion.

    Best price on the Web. This knife is top-rated by several renowned reviewing sites. Comfortable, well-balanced, and sharp. A great value for anyone serious about his/her equipment.

    Probably like many others, I bought this because of its recommendation in Cooks Illustrated. As far as relatively inexpensive chef's knives go, this one is definitely superior to the cheap one I bought at a retail store as a stand-in until this one arrived.

    I decided to buy this knife after reading several articles in Cook's Illustrated. I am glad I did! The knife looks simple -- aside from somewhat unusual shape. But it is extremely comfortable to use -- it is "just right" for most of the tasks and feels better than any chef knife I tried before.

    this is a very nice knife. it cuts very easily. it stays sharp for a very long time it is easy to sharpen and easy to clean.

    This knife does not have the balance of a forged knife, but for our purposes (heavy use with lots of untrained students) it has worked very well. The blade has remained fairly sharp, and the handle is comfortable.

    Sharp and easy enough for all of us deli gals to handle. The guys like it, too, since it's sharp and does the job right. Hopefully it will stay sharp for a while. :-)

    from Cornerstone Country Market Posted on

    For an inexpensive knife, I was very impressed. It sharpens easily, holds an edge, blade feels sturdy and is easy to handle. A perfect knife to take along on holidays or to the cabin when you don't want to take your expensive chef knives with you.

    I read about this knife at americastestkithen.com. It was rated the #1 chef knife. Highly Recommended Forschner Victorinox Fibrox Chef’s Knife Comments: One tester summed it up: “Premium-quality knife at a bargain price.” Knives costing four times as much would be hard pressed to match its performance. The blade is curved and sharp; the handle comfortable. Overall, “sturdy” and “well balanced.”
