Victorinox is a Swiss brand renowned for superb cutlery tools. One of the best things about world-famous top brands is that they uphold a standard of excellence: you can be assured that when you purchase a Victorinox, you are getting superior quality.
Though the brand is most famous for the Swiss army knife, it also produces top-grade kitchen cutlery. Each Victorinox Chef’s Knife is a specialty kitchen utensil – a brilliant combination of a slicer and a cleaver. Designed to be a widely functional cutting tool, this chef’s knife is ideal for a variety of uses. At 15 inches long, 3.8 inches wide and an inch thick, it weighs a lightweight 4 ounces.
The blade is made of high-carbon stainless material, stamped from cold-rolled steel, then ice-tempered – this makes it narrower and lighter than most other knives. The razor-sharp blade is ground and shaped to reduce resistance and facilitate ease in cutting. Laser-testing ensures that every knife is durable and maintains its sharpness longer.
The Victorinox Chef’s Knife can be used for slicing fruits and vegetables or carving meat, but it can also be used for more heavy-duty kitchen tasks like stripping or deboning. Being razor-sharp and specially shaped, it makes slicing veggies as simple as cutting through softened butter. This is especially very useful when you need to do a lot of mincing and chopping – a definite advantage for restaurants and professional kitchens. As an added benefit, the lightweight, ergonomic design minimizes stress on the wrist, making hours of kitchen work much less taxing.
A knife this special however, needs to be washed and wiped dry immediately after use, to maintain its quality. If you aren’t able to care for it scrupulously, the sharpness may decrease rapidly and it won’t seem anything worth what you paid for.
Overall, a Victorinox Chef’s Knife gives you excellent value for your money because it allows for more efficient work. What’s more, it costs about a third of the price of the other popular chef’s knives or those fancy ceramic knives. It’s definitely a good thing to have in your kitchen.
