Not ATL but the lowest in the past year if you are looking to buy one.

A lot of good reviews on youtube.

FYI this is a 15 degree blade. A good manual 15 degree sharpener is up to $70, which is fine because ~$100 on a good knife and sharpener is better than $100 on a knife with no sharpener. You also don't need to keep a honing rod around with this https://www.amazon.ca/Chefs-Choice-Pron ... 007IVBET0/

Full disclosure: I am not a kitchen expert, food "pro" or anything of the sort.

A lot of RFDers get excited over some of the more expensive fancy knives that get mentioned here from time to time. Everywhere you read that you're not supposed to put your good knives in the dishwasher, hand wash only. Screw that, I want to simplify my life and these well-reviewed Victorinox knives suit the bill.

I've owned the 6" version for a year and love it. It's the go-to knife in our house - stays sharp and goes into the dishwasher all the time. I just ordered another 6" one thanks to this thread. On sale now for near recent ATL price of $33 (for the 6")

Hey quick question please...I have the 8" version and its the badass knife in the kitchen for sure. Where do you find out info on the blade angle? I assumed my 8" version was a 20 degree being a "European" brand. I do have a chefs choice for sharpening. thx

Love this knife, a workhorse that is very sharp to start and holds an edge very well. Bought mine in 2017 and just sharpened it last year.

just came to say I ordered this exact 6" knife as well... after some issues... kept charging me 39.99, despite fee showing 32$... finally got it in mmy cart and paid $32 all in.

even better, since this blade is 15 degrees, i can use the wet Global 2 stage sharpener I already have for my 8" global on this one!... BEAUTY

how often do you sharpen this one?

Just a heads up that London drugs has the classic line on sale right now.
Carving knife is $29
Santuku is $49
My understanding is the blades are the same as the Fibrox, just the handles are different. Only in red from what I saw in store.

This knife can go in the dishwasher. The major problem will be if it bangs against other items.

There's a reason why Victorinox are used in restaurant kitchens around the world. Good quality, inexpensive, and durable. They offer a tremendous value. Buy these over your henckels crap from Canadian Tire.

Got way too many knives already, but I can vouch for this as being one of the best value knives out there.

So lightweight and so sharp, very nice to use and the fibrox handle has good slip resistance.

I probably run it over the sharpening rod about once a month (though admittedly I don't know if I'm doing it properly).

It's DW safe as mentioned in the description. Ppl say don't put knives in the DW b/c the detergent dulls the blade and it bangs around against other things, again dulling the blade. Also the heat is not good for wood-handled knives. I put it into the 3rd/top rack of the DW where all cutlery is separated. Without a 3rd rack I'd find a spot where it doesn't bang around against something else. I don't care about the finish as these knives are for daily use and not a display case.

Agreed. We have a set of those and they never hold their edge and (wood) handles are cracked presumable from the DW.

Thanks op, was waiting for it to go on sale on prime day, but this looks like a good price.

Will the Costco chefs choice electric sharpener be able to sharpen this knife?

Yes same blade, different handle - not just colour tho, it's a different grip. People say that Classic have a smaller handle, so fits better for smaller hands.

btw - $29 one is a carving knife, not chefs. https://www.londondrugs.com/victorinox- ... hen-knives
unless you seeing chef's in store or something.

Its literally a 15 seconds task that prolongs the life of any knife, fancy or not. That's how you save money, by not having to buy knifes as often.

Agree with other post, having a 3rd rack for cutlery and knives where they don't get banged up is wonderful for when family puts the knives in the dishwasher

Prolong your knives and reduce how often you have to sharpen them by washing them with a soaper cloth and then dry them with a dish towel. Very simple and easy. This should be done with all sharp knives, not just expensive ones.

Not sure why any knife needs to go in the dishwasher. A couple of quick wipes with a soapy sponge and it’s good to go...

Great knife BTW.

So much misinformation about knives.

Firstly there no such thing as a 15 degree knife. It might start at 15 degrees but any knife can be any angle, it's personal preference really, you can change an angle by sharpening at a different angle.

Secondly, the softer the metal the easier it is to sharpen and the faster it loses an edge. Nothing wrong with a Henckel knife or a Dollar store knife. If it's sharp, it will cut. There are different thicknesses, metal hardness shape etc and these factors all have different importance to different ppl.

FYI one of the knives I've been using a lot lately is a 6" Thai Kiwi knife which sells for under $10 tax included. Can be bought at Tap Phong downtown or Amazon. Really thin light blade - wood handle so don't put it in the dish washer. You can hone it to really sharp. No sharpener required. Btw I have this victorinox knife as well but blade is longer.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Great knife, I've had one for 4 years now and it's always the first I reach for. Price is good, not amazing, basically the same I paid four years ago.
