About the Product
Need to slice a watermelon? Butternut squash? The 10" Rosewood Chef’s Knife gives you the extra leverage you need to complete these larger tasks. The longer, wider blade provides greater heft so hard-skinned items like acorn and spaghetti squashes are easier to slice through in one motion. The longer cutting edge also allows you to do more at once. Rather than chopping one carrot or celery stick at a time, the 10 inch blade gives you the option of handling multiple pieces at a time.
A great all-rounder. The Fibrox Carving Knife from the professional line of knives by Victorinox is prized by home cooks and professional chefs alike for its comfortable, non-slip, ergonomic handle and for the optimal weight and balance its extra wide blade delivers. With a razor-sharp edge that rarely requires sharpening, this knife promises both ease and efficiency when slicing cooked and grilled meat or larger foods.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Victorinox Rosewood 5.2000.25 Chef's Knife
  • Out of box sharpness is very good, though those who know how to use stones can make it sharper.
  • Really good knife for the money. Edge retention is very good.
  • Nice sharp edge and a much lighter blade than my wusthof. While for some jobs (like skinning large veggies and fruits) the light weight is wonderful for other jobs (like cutting through especially dense root veggies) I really wish for the heft of the German blade that requires less effort.
  • This is a high-quality knife that meets the standards of many professional chefs, myself included. there are just so many good features. It's full tang, bolster free, and has a really comfortable handle.
  • It was a cheaper lighter version of Victorinox so that it almost appeared fake. Worse, it had water stains which means it was used and the package seemed like it had been opened already.
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.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox Rosewood 5.2000.25 Chef's Knife
  • The knife is a bit lighter than average. While this isn't something I necessarily appreciate, most probably will. It certainly is noticeably lighter than a Tramontina knife that competes with the non-wood version.
  • It is perfectly balanced right where you should pinch the back of the blade for a proper grip, and is noticeably lighter than your average fibrox grip kozini knife.
  • The weight of the blade is balanced, and allows me to cut easily, even through relatively difficult things like mushy tomatoes with thick skins.
  • This knife is comfortable to handle although the wooden handle is a bit large for my small hands. It has a nice weight to it and is nicely balanced.
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.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox Rosewood 5.2000.25 Chef's Knife
  • Good fit and finish, wood handle is well done and not cheap looking at all. There is a slight antiseptic odour on the handle (already dissipating with just a day's use though).
  • The back of the blade is about as thick as a kozini, but instead of being one big fat piece of metal with a bevel along one edge the entire height of the metal tapers down to the edge, allowing it to get significantly sharper and stay sharp longer than a fat blade.
  • The handle is very durable, as is the blade, and I would recommend to any cooks out there who need a larger blade to make chopping jobs easier and quicker.
  • This knife's the bomb! It is the only knife I need in the kitchen. It is a perfect balance, and I want to dance around and sing every time I use it. It just seems so . . . Perfect. And I cook a lot.
  • The fit and finish on the handle is not perfect, as such food can get caught in there.
  • The handle is not the most comfortable, I'm already feeling sore spots after cutting the skin off a butternut squash.
  • Unfortunately the wooden handle STINKS to all hell when wet. It's a musty, acrid smell. The worst part is the disgusting smell transfers to your hands when using the knife.
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.
