Most people don’t understand that a single good chef’s knife takes care of most of your cutting tasks in the kitchen. The Victornox Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife is trusty, inexpensive, and trusted by many chefs. If you’re not in the mood to drop a hundreds of dollars on a high-end chef’s knife, than this knife is a great selection.
For starters, the knife is dishwasher safe. That’s such a great feature. It’s built to slice, mince, chop, dice… basically any task that involves cutting in the kitchen. The blade is 8 inches of high-quality European steel.
The handle is ergonomically designed and provides steady handling even if it manages to get wet. The knife handles deftly, providing lots of balance and control in the handle. Need to finesse and mince? No problem. Need to get some extra oomph by pressing down on the handle if you’re, say, chopping a squash? No problem. The flat spine of the knife gives you that option.
For under $50, this chef’s knife is a screaming deal.
