About the Product
Finest quality Swiss professional knives, the result of over 100 years experience. This Victorinox cooks knife has a high quality razor sharp stainless steel blade with a unique anti-slip nylon Fibrox handle.
Need to slice a watermelon? Butternut squash? The 10" Rosewood Chef’s Knife gives you the extra leverage you need to complete these larger tasks. The longer, wider blade provides greater heft so hard-skinned items like acorn and spaghetti squashes are easier to slice through in one motion. The longer cutting edge also allows you to do more at once. Rather than chopping one carrot or celery stick at a time, the 10 inch blade gives you the option of handling multiple pieces at a time.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Victorinox Fibrox (5.2003.22) Straight Edge Carving Knife with 22 cm Blade
  • I spent a lot of time looking around at articles and reviews and for an all-round general purpose kitchen knife you won't find better at this price range. Highly recommended.
  • The blade is deeper than most chef knives, allowing for a more natural cutting position, and less strain on your wrists.
  • The blade has a very smooth polished finish that helps you glide through food easily.
  • You get full use of the blade because it does not have a bolster.
  • Lovely sharp smooth edge, allows nice rolling action for dicing/chopping.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox Fibrox (5.2003.22) Straight Edge Carving Knife with 22 cm Blade
  • The knife is a little on the light side, which I think is good, because maneuvering is less exhausting.
  • 8,5 inch blade is a good size for most applications in a professional kitchen, some people like their main knife to be a bit longer, but I found this one a perfect size.
  • It has stayed sharp after many uses, it's light and very pleasant to use.
  • I use it on daily basis as an universal do-all knife and find it very ergonomic, lightweight and just the right size and blade profile for all uses.
  • A very light knife, a bit light-ish for my taste, but it's a personal preference.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox Fibrox (5.2003.22) Straight Edge Carving Knife with 22 cm Blade
  • Very sharp and ergonomic knife. I've already cut my fingers and it wasn't for the purpose of this review.
  • The plastic fibrox handle has an excellent medium sized grip (good for small or big hands) that is very sanitary.
  • Great shape, comfortable to use in a busy kitchen, very happy with the purchase.
  • The handle won't win a beauty award but it is non-slip and very functional, won't split, and is probably indestructible unless left on direct heat.
  • This is a fine extremely sharp good value knife with a great blade but the textured plastic handle.
