The Victorinox 96912 8 inch Chef’s Knife is meant to perform well through a wide variety of kitchen tasks. If you’re slicing sections of meat, chopping an array of vegetables, or mincing fresh herbs the chef’s knife can get the job done in both the hands of an up-and-coming student chef or a skilled and seasoned professional. Stamped construction provides a lighter, thinner blade, and a straight edge makes it easy to smoothly rock the knife for a more precise cut. The color coded red Fibrox handle is slip resistant when wet and helps your staff avoid cross contamination. At 8 inches long tip to handle, and equipped with all the features that make this style of knife so popular, the Victorinox 5206720 is an excellent addition to any cutlery set.

      Comments about Victorinox 8 in Red Chef Knife:

      I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to knives, & generally I prefer the now-hard-to-find carbon steel knives. --I bought this knife because of a good review in Cooks Illustrated. Gotta say, it's a tremendous value. It's a little lighter than many chef knives, but that doesn't bother me; indeed, if you're doing a lot of cutting that may be a slight advantage. Balance is nice, and the edge comes from the factory VERY sharp. IMHO, the Victorinox line of stainless knives is a great buy. I have a few paring knives, a boning knife and now this one. Most knives in this price range are pretty mediocre, but Victorinox is head and shoulders above others in this range.
