From the inventors of the famous Swiss Army knife comes a line of fine cutlery designed for accomplished and aspiring chefs at work or in the home. The Forged line gets its name from the construction of the knives’ blades, which are hot-drop forged in Germany from high-carbon stainless steel. High-carbon steel provides maximum sharpness and edge retention. The knives are finished in Switzerland and ice tempered to sustain sharpness longer, even after resharpening. They feature a single-piece full-tang construction for stability and balance, as well as bolsterless edges for use of their entire blades and ease of sharpening. Triple-riveted for durability and ergonomically designed to provide optimum weight, balance, and comfort, the Plastic-Over-Molded (POM) handles will hold their shape and not crack or separate from blades. The Victorinox Forged collection is an extensive range with open-stock pieces as well as handy and versatile sets.Designed for chopping, mincing, and dicing, the 10-inch Chef’s Knife is an important tool used daily by the busy chef. Along with the 8-inch version, sold separately, the chef’s knife is the centerpiece of Victorinox’s Forged collection. The 10-inch knife is great for larger hands. Choose the one best suited to the chef. All Forged cutlery should be washed by hand for best care, and Victorinox covers each piece with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.
