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.
Wüsthof 4862-7/26 Pro Chef’s Knife
  • The weight is balanced better on the wusthof than the victorinox. If you are cutting fine things the wusthof is the knife for you. if you chop potatoes and carrots the victorninox wins out.
  • This knife is an excellent value for a modern day kitchen. If you do your research you will find that this knife uses the EXACT same steel as the Wusthof forged knives. The steel they both use is x50crmov15, it isn't the hardest steel available but it holds up.
  • I cannot say enough great things about this knife. This is amazing! Sharp as can be right out of the box and still just as sharp one month later. I use this just about every day from cutting meats to veggies.
  • It is razor sharp, and has held an edge through many cooking projects. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone looking to start cooking, or even people already cooking just looking to upgrade knives. Wusthof makes an excellent knife, and this introductory knife is no exception.
  • This knife is massive. The blade also chipped a day after I got it. Maybe I got a dud... It's a shame because I like Wusthof knives, but this was a little disappointing.
  • The blade is so wide that the slices, such as tomatoes, adhere to the blade instead of falling off. It makes slicing much slower.

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.
Wüsthof 4862-7/26 Pro Chef’s Knife
  • The weight is really nice, as is the balance. It comes out of the box super sharp and is easy to put an edge back on it when it starts to dull. The handle is wonderful for gripping it properly.
  • Very sharp - high quality blade. comfortable handle and good weight makes cutting, chopping, slicing and mincing very easy.
  • I love this knife! It's well balanced, it's very sharp and makes easy work of anything I am chopping!
  • The balance of the blade and handle is perfect and the way they crafted the handle allows for the perfect grip to form naturally.
  • I love the handle and the blade keeps a fine edge but the truth is its useless to me. It's blade isn't deep enough so when I chop with it I strike my knuckles on the cutting board every time. I literally won't use it and its brand new.

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.
Wüsthof 4862-7/26 Pro Chef’s Knife
  • The grip is definitely unorthodox, allowing you to get more on top of the blade. It's definitely the best for chopping strokes because of the blade curve. Rubber grip surface & shape is pretty comfy.
  • The handle took a bit to get used to but it is comfortable to use. Even my wife, who is left-handed, feels comfortable using this blade when cooking.
  • I love this knife. The shape of the grip helps me as an amateur chef by putting my hand where it needs to be.
  • Only downside is the handle, some cooks I work with don't like the handle but I am left handed and think it works well.
  • It feels cheap. A good brand name in a cheap product.
