The 7” Chef’s Knife (40024) from Victorinox features an elegant rosewood handle that is ergonomically designed to reduce wrist tension and triple riveted for durability. Versatility makes the chef’s knife the most used blade in any kitchen, so a durable blade is paramount. The Victorinox stamped blade is made from high-carbon stainless-steel that is conically ground length and crosswise. This results in a wider break point and an edge that is more resistant to fracturing while creating less friction when cutting. A unique tempering process creates an edge that can be continually re-sharpened. The mirror finished blade is laser tested to ensure world renowned sharpness. Victorinox has been producing quality cutlery in Switzerland for over 126 years.
