What customers say about "Key Specs"
Victorinox Fibrox Pro 5.2063.20 Chef's Knife
  • The knife is sharp! This thing comes so sharp, I'm surprised it didn't sliver it's way out of the packaging. Meat & Vegetables tremble in fear as my knife slowly approaches them and rightfully bow down to my mighty blade!
  • It feels awesome wielding such a sharp blade. I feel like an ancient samurai tasked by my emperor to slay a sworn enemy of our people. Ok that's more of a personal PRO, but there's no harm in sharing!
  • Retained the edge for a decent time and has only needed a honing steel with it which has worked well.
  • The blade looks like a high quality blade. The Steel that this knife is made from is thicker than most stamped knives. The blade tapers from the hilt to the tip and the blade is broader than most knives.
  • The knife is stamped steel. Obviously, the knife could never be this inexpensive or light if it were forged, but some like to steer clear of stamped steel in fear of poor quality.
Victorinox Swiss Classic 6.8003.25G Chef's Knife
  • Very sharp, much better than any "cheap" knife set you might find at Costco or the supermarket.
  • Not much of a classic "chef's knife" but the world's best cauliflower and broccoli knife. The smaller, pointier blade gets between those florets like a laser. It also an excellent carving knife for small or medium meat items, like whole chicken, lamb and the like.
  • What I love about this chef's knife is the larger than expected blade and the quality of the steel. The grip is better than expected as long as the knive is gripped as intended, I was surprised when I researched that. I wasn't gripping my knives correctly.
  • Excellent knife. Decent sharpness out of box, good edge retention, and extremely affordable. This is the knife I would urge people to buy if they do not have much budget.
  • Bought it because of positive reviews. Dull after a few uses and it does not feel any difference from those cheap ones. Stopped using it ...
  • Okay, but not great. Does not hold an edge that well. I read a great review about these knives COOK magazine--rated them number 1 above far more expensive knives. Fact is, its no better than what I paid for.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox Fibrox Pro 5.2063.20 Chef's Knife
  • The knife is very light. If you're doing a lot of chopping, dicing etc., your hand won't get tired as fast as you would with a typical forged steel knife (excluding ceramic of course.)
  • The knife is very light. Some prefer a heavier knife and would not like this.
  • It's weighted well. It has good balance. It came with and keeps a very sharp edge.
  • The handle is very lightweight which throws the balance off a bit and the handle is slightly less than not attractive.
Victorinox Swiss Classic 6.8003.25G Chef's Knife
  • Awesome knife. It is weighted perfectly and so sharp and easy to use.
  • It's razor sharp out of the box and very easy to maintain. I like the weight and how it handles it self.
  • The weight is not too heavy but not too light, the blade curve is perfect for doing awesome job at chopping. The height of the knife is about a half-inch taller than most chef knives I've used.
  • It has a decent weight to it, but I haven't used a "nice" knife brand before, so that might be normal. Cuts very well straight out of the package.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox Fibrox Pro 5.2063.20 Chef's Knife
  • Easy to clean and still looks like new after a few months with frequent usage.
  • The handle fits my hand very well. Also I am very impressed that his company will guarantee this knife for life and ship out a replacement with no questions asked.
  • The handle feels perfect in hand and actually grips better with a little moisture.
  • The balance is spot-on with a lovely curve to the blade. It makes rocking a breeze!
  • The handle is plastic and does feel a little cheap. This does contribute to the lightness that I enjoy, but if a plastic handle is something you don't want in your kitchen, then look elsewhere.
  • No grooves (Granton Grooves) on the side of the blade. Those grooves help keep food from sticking to the blade as you slice and this baby doesn't have them. That does bother me a little and I love that my Santoku has those grooves.

  • The handle might *look* cheap compared to full-tang wooden handles with the metal bolts showing, or full-metal knives, but if you're someone who values functionality over aesthetics, the rubber handle is, in my (and my grandmother's) opinion, significantly easier to grip and use.
  • I wipe it dry immediately after washing and store it in the pkg it came in, fits right in my utensils drawer. Have bumped the edge and cut myself a couple times, not bad but lessons needed after living with dull knives for so long. I love this knife!
  • The knife handle seems soft of cheap compared to more expensive knives, but the texture really helps keep a good grip. The knife seems well balanced, and the size makes me feel more comfortable.
  • Hard to find faults at this price point. If i had to nick pick, the handle might not be for everyone.
  • I bought two of these, one for myself and one for my mom. I opened one and tried it. The knife was dull right out of the box. The knife didn't have the same markings on it as the one pictured either, so I suspect it's either a knock-off or just a very over-rated knife.
