Victorinox 8" Chefs Knife, Black Fibrox Handle, 40520.
Highly recommended by Cook's Illustrated Magazine! This Victorinox Swiss Army Chef's knife received a 5-star rating in blade design, handle, kitchen task and edge retention. Testers' comments:Still the best - and a bargain - after 20 years this knife's "super-sharp" blade was "silent" and "smooth" even as it cut through tough squash, and it retained its edge after weeks of testing. Its textured grip felt secure for a wide range of hand sizes, and thanks to its gently rounded edges and the soft. hand-polished top spine, we could comfortably choke up on the knife for precise, effortless cuts.
Modern nylon and patented Fibrox handle is hygienic, dishwasher safe, slip-resistant and NSF approved. The handle is ergonomically designed to help minimize tension at the wrist and provides a much more comfortable grip than rosewood handles. Also known as a Cook's Knife, the chef's knife is an all-purpose knife used for slicing, chopping, dicing, mincing, and many other functions. The blade is curved to allow the cook to rock the knife on the cutting board for a more precise cut. Most chefs recommend using the largest chef's knife that is comfortable in the cook's hands.
