This is the best knife, I use to use a wood handled knife and thought it was great but once you go Fibrox you never go back, I say that because you can easily chop wet things (potato,cabbage, lettuce,) without worrying about the knife slipping from your hand.

This is an excellent knife, especially for the price. It feels good in my hand, being the perfect weight. The textured plastic grip makes it easy to hold even with wet hands. I would highly recommend it to anybody wanting a knife for home use or for kitchens where the cook won't be bringing their own knives.

I work in a healthcare kitchen and needed a new chef's knife. Since I don't like to leave expensive knives laying around my kitchen and don't want the bother of carrying my knives back and forth, I was looking for a decent knife at a decent price. I own some incredibly expensive knives and take kitchen cutlery very seriously so I was surprised when this knife far exceeded my expectations and lived up to the hype surrounding it. I acclimated to it quickly and it performs beautifully with the basic everyday tasks I use it for. Slicing raw meat, even bacon, is effortless. Veggies don't stand a chance. It's definitely not the work of art that my Miyabi is, but it's a functional workhorse at a steal of a price. I'd buy it again and would be proud to give it as a gift.

Hands down one of the best sized chef's knife for everyday use. The quality of the cutting given the lightweight design on first holding is completely dispelled and is a joy to handle and slice. The knife handles comfortably well when used with wet dripping hands as it does with dry hands. The clean up is a breeze and the handle does not soak up any water despite the given porous texture of the fibrox handle. Will definitely buy more of these.

Really good knife for chopping! The handle is well made and grips firmly, no slipping even when wet. It is really sharp so be careful!

Ankur A. on 09/15/2021

A great knife! Super sharp and easy to handle. Cutting meat and veg is amazing. I forgot what having a super sharp knife. Buying it on this site made it way cheaper! I would recommend this to anyone.

Katherine I. on 04/06/2021

This is my favorite chef's knife of the 5 that I own. It was also the least expensive. Very comfortable and easy to clean. It glides beautifully and came out of the box super sharp.

Loren C. on 07/28/2020

These are my favorite knifes to use in my Culinary Arts program. They are lightweight and comfortable to hold. They sharpen well and are a great value for the price.

Jessica B. from Rigby High School on 06/11/2020

Truly the best knife I’ve ever used. Extremely sharp and makes cutting through everything I’ve tried an absolute breeze. Handle feels safe and secure to use; no slipping as with other types of handles. The knife is a bit lighter than I would prefer, but the sharpness of the blade negates most of the need for heft. The sharpness really does all of the work for you. Will purchase again for friends in the market for new knives.

Nick S. on 12/08/2019

tays sharp and hones with a steel very well. It's now my primary go-to knife in the kitchen until I find a better replacement. The bad thing about it is that the handle angles up toward the end which makes the blade sit tip-up in your hand. For me, at least, this is not a comfortable nor normal position for any use. It took a bit of getting used to and now I can use it safely, but this is the first knife I've used that when first using it, I accidentally stabbed my hand, requiring stitches. If you get one, please be cautious.

Mikle from Misha142 on 07/18/2019

The Victorinox 8" is much lighter than I anticipated but I find myself reaching for it very often. It feels good and secure in the hand and chops vegetables and meats very nicely.

Thomas V. on 07/09/2019

This is the best chef knife Ive used so far it glides so easily and weight is unbelievablea good product to use when cutting lots

Scott T. from 1979 on 04/25/2019

I'm in love with this chef's knife. The price point is considerably low considering the high quality. The knife rocks from the belly very well, has a good weight, is durable, and has a really great non-slip gripped handle that can get wet without becoming slippery. I would say that for the price, this is the best knife you're going to find.

Anna from Jean M. on 04/07/2019

I love this knife I use it almost everyday for cutting up whole chickens I use it to cut up our chicken roll ups. Sometimes I use it to chop up veggies really fast. All in all it’s a great knife with a very sharp blade and many uses I would recomend this knife to anyone.

James B. from The Fresh Market on 03/18/2019

I would recommend this knife to be used in every kitchen. By using it, it would cut your prep time down dramatically compared to other knives in the same price range. It is also very well made so don't be surprised if this lasts for many years to come.

Sara K. on 01/09/2019

My go to knife for any young chef or folks still learning. Great balance, maintains edge decently well, and NSF. This is the knife I use at home as a general all purpose when I first started cooking. Affordable, well made, and is a great beginner knife.

Derrick T. from Paulie Gee's Logan Square on 09/26/2018

Excellent quality chef knife, with great edge retention. In my experience, best when sharpened to a 20 degree symmetric bevel on a fixed angle sharpener. At 15 degrees the edge doesn't hold long enough, and at 30 degrees, you lose a bit of sharpness. The knife heel is a bit taller than 2" and does not fit 2" blade guards.

Leo S. on 08/17/2018

This used to be my favorite knife, but now I use the 10 inch version. Nevertheless, this is still one of the best knives out there, and can hold its own with $200 Asian knives for a fraction of the price! Highly recommended

Alexander K. on 05/16/2018

I didn't know what I was missing in the kitchen until I bought this knife. Very heavy duty and stays sharp. I use it for all kinds of prep on a daily basis and have never had an issue. I plan on buying many more!!

Carlos G. from Tito's Taqueria on 04/01/2018

This knife is a time saver! The blade is very sharp and it doesn't need to be sharpened for months at a time, even with a lot of use. It can also be placed in a dishwasher.
