We think you deserve a kitchen knife that works as hard as you do, and this Victorinox Swiss Army 8-in. Chef's Knife fits the bill perfectly. This precision-crafted knife, made by the same manufacturer as the world-renowned Swiss Army knife, is built to be lightweight, balanced and durable, so it will deliver reliable results time after time. The blade is crafted from high-carbon stainless steel with a high-polish finish that ensures easy, even slicing and easy maintenance. This knife's great 8-inch length makes it ideal for carving roasts or poultry, slicing bread, or chopping or dicing larger vegetables, such as potatoes or eggplants. The patented Fibrox handle is designed to be slip-resistant whether your hands are wet or dry while you're gripping it. The conical ground edge retains its sharpness over time, and it's laser tested to ensure its precision. The comfortable handle won't cause hand fatigue, even if you're using it for an extended period of time. Hand-washing this blade is recommended to keep it in tip-top condition, but it also is dishwasher safe if you're in a rush.

Best Used For:

Put this high-quality knife to work slicing a homemade loaf of crusty bread, carving a roasted chicken or slicing large potatoes. It's a larger knife, but its lightweight and easy-to-handle design means that you can easily use it for smaller jobs too, such as dicing onions and tomatoes for salsa or slicing cheese for an appetizer plate.

  • Dishwasher safe
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Blade Length: 8-in.
  • Cleaning & Care: Dishwasher Safe, Handwash Recommended
  • Material Blade: Stainless Steel

  • You can't touch it for under $110

    I have a set of hand forged knives I bought some years ago. I started with the chef's knife, which I love. But that knife is 10" long and unwieldy at times. I had a Kullens blade Santuko knife in the set and broke the edge on a very hard object. I couldn't afford to replace that knife, though it was my most used knife due to it's sharpness and length. Well, I don't need to replace the expensive knife because I found a better one. This knife is light, sharp, and controllable. There is no knife at 4X's the cost that can beat it. If I need a heavier knife then the 10" Lamson comes out.

    I recommend this product.

  • best knife for the money

    i bought this knife after reading a review in a cooking magazine i subscribe to. it said the knife performed as well as knives that cost much more. i took a chance on it and their advice is accurate and well worth the price. the first time i used it, i was like "wow"! i can't believe this knife was only thirty bucks! it's my new favorite knife, enough said.

  • Wicked Sharp

    I sought out this knife to add to my kitchen tools after reading about its repeated high praise from Cooks Illustrated editors. I like the feel of the handle and the edge of the blade. Very sharp and great for multiple uses. My only complaint might be that the stamped blade is pretty light compared to a forged knife, so it takes some getting used to. Overall, lots of bang for the buck, here.

  • Great to have a new knife.

    Our knives were so dull. It is such a different experience using one as nice as this. I used my America's Test Kitchen cookbook's recommendations to purchase several items and Cooking.com had good prices on several of the items.

  • Surprisingly good quality for the money

    While not in the same class as my best knives (I prefer Henckels Zwilling), this is a great knife for considerably less money. We belong to a vacation club where we stay in villas, and in the summer we like to rent a house, villa or condo for a week or so. The cutlery provided in these places is generally cheap and dull to the point of being dangerous. I bought this knife and the Victorinox companion paring knife to bring on vacation. The knife has a good feel, but not quite the heft of my better knives. It cuts beautifully and should hold its edge for some time given that it is not in daily use year-round.

    I recommend this product.

  • WHAT A KNIFE

    I thoroughly enjoy this chef knife. Fit, finish, balance & handling are superb. In fact the evening I received it I also received another gift, I got a "VICTORINOX BITE" !!! Right on the left hand pinky. That sucker is sharp, real sharp!Slicing, dicing, cutting and so-on is a pure delight with this tool.I have some other knives that I liked a lot BUT they're going to the back of the knife drawer. The big "V" is my daily go to #1 chef knife. On another note I shopped around quite a bit for this knife and Cooking.com had the BEST price and even had it in a combo-pack with a terrific little paring knife.This purchase made my Christmas a cut above the rest (no pun intended). What can I say, its an excellently superbly made kitchen tool...

    I recommend this product.

  • Wife loves this knife

    Granted, only had this knife for a week, but my wife loves this knife so far. She said it is by far her favorite present she got this Christmas season. It has done a great job on everything so far....cut through frozen chicken like it was butter.

  • Not disappointed!

    I purchased this particular knife after reading the reviews on ATK I have not been disappointed. I especially like the handle. I guess i have large hands, because i find the handles of most chef's knives to be very uncomfortable after a few minutes use. The handle on this knife is much better. The blade was sharp to start and has been quick and easy to re-sharpen. I consider this knife a real bargain for the price i paid.

  • AMAZING!

    This knife is AMAZING. I have used a cheap knife I bought in a discount store because I didn't know what knife to buy. I found the TV show America's Test Kitchen, what a bucket of information on that show! I love the reviews they have ,that's where I found this knife. It is every bit the wonderful knife they said. I no longer have to press hard to cut through my food I am preparing. Worth every penny and more!!

  • My husband really likes

    I bought this for myself, but I haven't used it yet. I bought it because I do not like the large chef knifes. This isn't small like my Cutco, but isn't as big as my Chicago Cutlery. However, my husband just loves this new knife.

  • Great Product

    It was incredibly sharp. Girl friend cut her finger washing the knife out of the box, BE CAREFUL. The first food cut with the knife was a pineapple. It cut like my old knife when I cut butter. It was incredible. The blade is thick enough, thus preventing wobble when cutting somethin thick. The handle felt very nice and did not get slippery when it got wet.
