The R H Forschner by Victorinox Mini Chef's Knife features high carbon, stainless steel blade, hand finished at Victorinox in Swit...zerland by skilled craftsmen. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again, so the knife can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. Victorinox handles are ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension. They provide a natural fit. A good heft and comfortable, positive grip are indications of a well-made knife. A sure-grip handle with a finger guard is valuable feature since the handle inevitably gets greasy, wet, or both. Although cutlery steel is naturally sanitary, materials and construction details of the handle minimize crevices what would offer hospitality to bacteria. read more

<b>From the Manufacturer</b><p> <table align=left width=80 cellpadding=5> <tr><td align=center><img src="http://images.amazon.com/...images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/Victorinox_Logo.jpg" border=0 align=top width=80 height=44></td></tr><table align=right width=468 cellpadding=10></table> <b>What is a ceramic blade?</b><br> For over 100 years, Victorinox Commercial Cutlery has become the tool of choice for professionals, and the brand continues to innovate with the introduction of the new ceramic blade collection featuring proprietary Fibrox® handles. Ceramic blades have recently gained popularity due to their outstanding edge retention and resistance to corrosion and acids. <p> Our ceramic blades are manufactured from high-purity zirconium oxide powder, compressed at very high pressures and sintered in furnaces at temperatures over 2700° F. The result is an extremely hard blade that is comparable to the hardness of a diamond. Each knife is then equipped with our classic Victorinox Fibrox handle with signature textured grip, helping reduce the chance of slippage. And with the handle designed to minimize wrist tension while still providing legendary cuts, it?s no wonder that Victorinox Commercial Cutlery remains the true choice of professionals. Ceramic blades are as useable as metal blades. Ceramic knives have several distinguishing features. <p> <ul><li>Precision Sharpness: We compress materials at very high pressures resulting in a hard blade which is comparable to diamonds. This hardness allows us to apply an edge with microscopic precision. The edge will maintain its razor sharpness and is resistant to wearing. <li>No Odors: Ceramic material is not very porous; it keeps the blade from transferring odors from one food item to another. You can cut something spicy, give it a quick rinse and then cut something else. The spiciness won?t transfer to the next food item. <li>Sanitary: Ceramic blades are very dense, with very little pores. Just like your face, the less pores there are, the less dirt and grime can get into the pores. A quick rinse in warm water will get your ceramic knife a lot cleaner than a thorough scrubbing on a metal knife. <li>Light Weight: Ceramic material is very light weight; half the weight of steel. The lighter weight means there will be less strain on your arms and shoulders. You can tackle any food preparation task with ease and precision, just like a pro. <li>No Rust: Because metal is not used in ceramic knives, they will never rust. This makes them the perfect knives for humid climates where risks of rust are high. <br> <br> <table align=left width=400 cellpadding=10> <br> <tr><td><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/vic-ceramic-chefs.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Chef?s Knife</b></i></small></td></tr> <tr><td><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/vic-ceramic-santoku.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Santoku Knife</b></i></small></td></tr> <tr><td><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/vic-ceramic-utility.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Utility Knife</b></i></small></td></tr> <tr><td><img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/victorinox-ceramic-sharpene.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Knife Sharpener</b></i></small></td></tr> </table> <table align=right width=280 cellpadding=10> <b>6-Inch Chef's</b>: The most important tool and essential to every cook, a chef?s knife is most often used in a rocking method to mince, dice, and chop vegetables and herbs. This one is known as the chef?s best friend. <p> <b>7-Inch Santoku</b>: This knife combines the features of a cleaver with a chef's knife. The curved blade helps the rocking motion used for chopping, and the wide blade works well for scooping sliced food off a cutting board and for crushing garlic. The santoku can also be used to slice meat and has a narrow spine for making thin cuts. <p> <b>Utility</b>: An all-purpose knife often referred to as a sandwich knife, the utility knife peels and slices fruits and vegetables, and even carves small meats. <p> <b>Ceramic Sharpener</b>: The Victorinox Diamond knife sharpener with stand is specifically engineered for the care of Victorinox ceramic cutlery. The sharpener panel has diamond particles and the stand on which the knife should be placed sets the blade at the correct angle for sharpening. </table> <p> <b>The benefits of Fibrox handles</b> <br> Our Fibrox handles are created with the unique hygienic needs of the home chef. They are designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure grip. They are also sanitary and easy to clean. They feature a lifetime warranty against manufacturer?s defects. <p> <b>How should I care for my ceramic cutlery?</b> <br> After use, clean ceramic knives with a mild detergent. Dishwashing is not recommended, unless the knife can be guaranteed not to come into contact with any other product. Never clean with a wire brush or hold in an open flame. We recommend the use of a special diamond sharpener like our Victorinox Ceramic Diamond Sharpener. Store your ceramic knives in the supplied protector. <p> <b>Who is Victorinox?</b><br> Although Victorinox is known the world over as the creator of the Original Swiss Army Knife, the company started out in 1884 as a cutlery workshop. By the time company creator Karl Elsener delivered his first pocket knife to the Swiss Army, his cutlery business was already booming. Over the next century, Victorinox cutlery became a top-rated choice among professionals worldwide, with over 300 blades to offer. <p> Victorinox knives have regularly appeared as highly ranked and recommended kitchen tools in <i>Cook?s Illustrated</i>, <i>Men?s Health</i>, <i>The Cincinnati Enquirer</i>, <i>New York Magazine</i>, and <i>Natural Health</i>, just to name a few. In 2009, the company announced a partnership with professional chef, Daniel Humm, of Eleven Madison Park in New York City. In addition, building on the success of its cutlery business, Victorinox has brought all the same quality and expertise to a wider range of products and accessories, including other kitchen tools, pocket tools, watches, luggage, and clothing. read more

From the inventors of the famous Swiss Army knife comes a line of fine cutlery designed for accomplished and aspiring chefs at wor...k or in the home. Each blade in the Stamped collection is expertly made in Switzerland from high-carbon stainless steel and undergoes a special tempering process for an edge that can be resharpened again and again. The result is a knife that can keep its original sharpness throughout the entire life of the blade. Each blade is conical ground throughout its length and depth, and laser tested to ensure optimum cutting power and durability. Ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension, the unique, patented Fibrox handles are slip resistant when wet. Plus, all Stamped cutlery with Fibrox handles is approved by the National Sanitary Foundation (NSF). Although cutlery steel is naturally sanitary, materials and construction details of these handles minimize crevices that may otherwise offer hospitality to bacteria. The Victorinox Stamped collection is an extensive range with open-stock pieces as well as handy and versatile sets. <p> Often referred to as a chef's best friend, the 10-inch multipurpose chef's knife is designed for chopping, mincing, slicing, and dicing. Sized for comfort, it's also available in 6- and 8-inch versions as well. Made from the same material as the ergonomic black Fibrox, Victorinox's white Handles offer a sanitary view that is necessary for hospital and school kitchens, large food services institutions, and governmental contracts. All Stamped cutlery should be washed by hand for best care, and Victorinox covers each piece with a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects. <p> <b>From the Manufacturer</b><p> <table align=left width=80 cellpadding=5> <tr><td align=center><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/Victorinox_Logo.jpg" border=0 align=top width=80 height=44></td></tr><table align=right width=500 cellpadding=10><tr><td align=right><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/Victorinox_Stamped_Cutlery.jpg" border=0 align=top width=500 height=520></td></tr></table> <b>Who is Victorinox?</b><br> Although Victorinox is known the world over as the creator of the Original Swiss Army Knife, the company started out in 1884 as a cutlery workshop. By the time company creator Karl Elsener delivered his first pocket knife to the Swiss Army, his cutlery business was already booming. Over the next century, Victorinox cutlery became a top-rated choice among professionals worldwide, with over 300 blades to offer. <p> Victorinox knives have regularly appeared as highly ranked and recommended kitchen tools in <i>Cook?s Illustrated</i>, <i>Men?s Health</i>, <i>The Cincinnati Enquirer</i>, <i>New York Magazine</i>, and <i>Natural Health</i>, just to name a few. In 2009, the company announced a partnership with professional chef, Daniel Humm, of Eleven Madison Park in New York City. In addition, building on the success of its cutlery business, Victorinox has brought all the same quality and expertise to a wider range of products and accessories, including other kitchen tools, pocket tools, watches, luggage, and clothing. <p> <b>Who is R.H. Forschner?</b><br> Victorinox had been a staple in European commercial cutlery for over 50 years when approached by New York?s R.H. Forschner, known since 1855 as a builder of scales for butchers, to be their sole cutlery supplier. The two companies joined forces in 1937, and R.H. Forschner subsequently became North America?s dominant professional brand, as ubiquitous in the bustling meatpacking plants of the Midwest as it is in the gleaming, four-star restaurant kitchens of Midtown Manhattan. <p> As a division of Victorinox/Swiss Army Brands, R.H. Forschner marketed cutlery under the brand name ?RH Forschner by Victorinox? and distributed to the commercial, food service, and retail trade classes. That brand has been considered a top choice of professionals worldwide with over 300 styles of blades bearing the R.H. Forschner name. However, in 2009, in conjunction with Victorinox?s 125th anniversary, the company, Victorinox Swiss Army, Inc., has decided to remove the ?RH Forschner? name from all blades. Blades thenceforth only include the ?Victorinox? name. <p> <b>What is a stamped blade?</b><br> A stamped knife can usually be identified by the absence of a bolster. Stamped blades are cut into their shapes from cold-rolled pieces of steel and then ground, tempered, and sharpened. Creating them requires many less steps than forging and results in lighter, narrower blades. Some professionals prefer the thicker, heavier forged blades, but many pros, who spend much of their day cutting and slicing, enjoy a lighter knife since it?s less fatiguing and easier to manipulate at speed. <p> Stamped knives are easier to produce and therefore less expensive. They perform very well and can approach the quality of a forged blade, but not the weight or feel. Victorinox manufactures a complete range of stamped blades with unique, patented Fibrox handles and they are considered among the greatest values in the knife industry. <p> <b>What knives do I need to own?</b><br> Knife choice or selection is determined by many factors--size, function, style, and preference. The most important factor is function. Different knives have different uses. It is important to use the proper knife for a specific task, since proper knife selection and the use of a proper-sized, sharp knife make for safe cutting. General kitchen tasks and the knife to use for them are as follows: <p> <b>Paring:</b> The most common to own and use, a paring knife is generally for small cutting jobs and peeling of vegetables or fruit. The blade size is usually from three to four inches. Choose the shape and size to fit your hand. Since this is one of the more versatile knives, owning more than one is recommended. <p> <b>Chef's:</b> The most important tool and essential to every cook, a chef?s knife is most often used in a rocking method to mince, dice, and chop vegetables and herbs. This one is known as the chef?s best friend. <p> <b>Slicer:</b> Most commonly used to slice meats, poultry, and seafood, the slicer is an important companion to any host or hostess. <p> <b>Boning:</b> As its name suggests, a boning knife is used to trim or remove meat and fish from the bone. <p> <b>Bread:</b> Designed with a special edge, a bread knife makes easy work of cutting through crusty bread, pastries, or any item with a crust and a soft interior. <p> <b>Fillet:</b> Most often used by pros and seasoned home chefs, the fillet knife is used to fillet meat and fish. <p> <b>Cleaver:</b> An important addition to any collection, a cleaver is often used to cut or chop through bones. <p> <b>Santoku:</b> This knife combines the features of a cleaver with a chef's knife. The curved blade helps the rocking motion used for chopping, and the wide blade works well for scooping sliced food off a cutting board and for crushing garlic. The santoku can also be used to slice meat and has a narrow spine for making thin cuts. <p> <b>Utility:</b> An all-purpose knife often referred to as a sandwich knife, the utility knife peels and slices fruits and vegetables, and even carves small meats. <p> <b>Shaping:</b> With its curved blade, a shaping knife is great for small precision cuts where control is essential, such as peeling, trimming, or garnishing. <p> <b>What are the different knife edges and what do they do?</b><br> <b>Straight:</b> The vast majority of Victorinox knives come with a straight or fine edge. This means it has a perfect taper along the blade and no serrations. It is designed to cut without tearing or shredding. <p> <b>Serrated:</b> An edge designed with small, jagged teeth along the edge. <p> <b>Scalloped:</b> A blade with waves along the edge generally used to cut breads with a hard crust and soft interior, as well as tougher-skinned fruits and vegetables. <p> <b>Granton:</b> This edge has hollowed-out grooves or dimples on the sides of the blade. These grooves fill with the fat and juices of the product being cut, allowing for thin, even cuts without tearing. Even with the grooves, these are still straight-edge knives and can be honed with a sharpening steel. <p> <b>How should I care for my cutlery?</b> <br> After use, knives should not be allowed to soak in water. The best practice is to hand wash and dry them immediately. This is especially true if they have been used on fruit or salty foods, which may cause some staining, even on stainless steel. Most knives require very little maintenance and it is worth the effort to protect your investment. <p> Though Victorinox knives are dishwasher safe, this is strongly discouraged. The dishwasher?s agitation may cause damage. Additionally, harsh detergents can be harmful and cause pitting and spotting on the blades. The handles may also discolor and develop a white film with constant use of the dishwasher. Plus, intense heat associated with dishwashers is not good for the temper of the blade. <p> <b>How do I keep my knives sharp?</b><br> All quality knives require proper maintenance to keep them in perfect cutting shape. The best of edges will quickly dull if it strikes metal, glass, or Formica. A wooden cutting board makes the best cutting surface. And, if a slip occurs, a proper cutting board is safer for the user. Frequent use of a Victorinox sharpening steel will keep blades in tip top working condition. All straight-edge knives need steeling to keep their edges.<p> <table align=left width=300 cellpadding=10><tr><td align=left><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/How_To_Steel_A_Knife.jpg" border=0 align=top width=300 height=203></td></tr></table> <p> <b>How to "Steel" a Knife</b><br> 1. Hold the steel firmly in your left hand with the guard positioned to stop the blade should it slip.<br> 2. Hold the knife in your right hand and place on top part of steel as shown.<br> 3. Raise back of blade one-eighth inch.<br> 4. Now, moving the blade only, draw it across the steel in an arching curve, pivoted at your wrist. The blade tip should leave the steel about two-thirds of the way down.<br> 5. Repeat the same action with the Blade on the bottom side of the steel. Always maintain the same pressure and angle on both sides of the steel.<br> 6. Repeat five or six times. <p> When a sharpening steel no longer does the job, it?s time to take the knife to a qualified knife sharpener who will place a new edge on it. This, along with use of the sharpening steel, will give you many years of sharp, safe blades. <p> Please note that electric knife sharpeners can be harmful. They have to be used carefully as they remove too much metal, can harm the temper of the blade, and most important can change the factory-applied edge angle. <p> <b>How should I store my knives?</b> <br> Safety is the biggest concern of storage, both to the user and to protect the knife's edge. Choices include a knife magnet, knife block, drawer insets, and also individual knife protectors. read more
