The hollow ground, granton edge, allows food to fall away from the blade rather than sticking to it, helping the knife to cut more efficiently. Hollow ground blades have concave, beveled edges that are ground starting midway down the blade, instead of at the spine. Use this versatile knife for everything from dicing onions to slicing a roast. 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. A santoku knife is often called an Asian chef's knife. They have a straighter edge than a chef's knife, and a more rounded spine, particularly near the point. They are also generally lighter and thinner, allowing them to more easily chop vegetables. They have become very popular in recent years, especially with women chefs, who generally have smaller hands.
High carbon stainless steel blades are hand finished in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. These blades do not discolor or stain. These knives are specially ground and tempered so that they can be re-sharpened over and over again, keeping a sharp edge throughout their lifetime.
Each Victorinox knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground down, polished, etched and finished. Swiss Army Victorinox provides professionals in food processing and preparation with superior quality, value-priced cutlery that enhances performance and increases productivity.
Victorinox is the high-end kitchen cutlery division of Swiss Army Knives. Victorinox began making professional-style cutlery in 1881 and has a dedicated following among many chefs and barbecue experts. These knives are very sharp, very high quality, and very reasonably priced.
Cook's Illustrated consistently rates Victorinox knives a best buy in their knife testing. All Victorinox Swiss Army cutlery products are backed by a lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defects.
