A great all-rounder. Your favorite and ours, the 8"" Fibrox Pro Chef's Knife can handle nearly every kitchen task imaginable. “Highly Recommended” for over 20 years by a leading gourmet consumer magazine that features unbiased ratings and reviews of cookware and kitchen equipment, this Chef's Knife is preferred due to its comfortable handle, superior weight and balance, and razor sharp edge that rarely requires re-sharpening. Tested against dozens of other chef’s knives, some with price tags nearly 10 times the cost of this knife, the 8” Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife is still the one to beat!
An all-purpose chef's knife is an essential tool in every kitchen. The Fibrox Pro 8"" Chef’s Knife is optimally weighted with high-quality, lightweight European steel that reduces hand and wrist fatigue, making it feel less like a knife and more like an extension of the hand. Perfectly suited for dicing onions, mincing shallots, chopping herbs, crushing garlic, slicing meats of all varieties, and shredding cabbage, its versatility will quickly make it your go-to knife.
At 8"", this knife offers the heft needed to complete larger tasks effortlessly, while still allowing for perfect maneuverability on smaller tasks that a larger, bulkier knife may not be able to accomplish as easily. The overall shape of the blade, with a long, sloping curve, lends itself to “rocking” very well, allowing one to mince and chop with ease, while the flat spine allows you to comfortably press down on the blade when extra power is needed to slice through hard-skinned items like acorn, or butternut squash.
The ergonomic, non-slip patented Fibrox Pro handle was designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure, comfortable grip no matter the size of your hand or where you are gripping the handle. Both lightweight and durable, the textured handle offers perfect balance and feels secure even when greasy or wet, allowing for precise and effortless cuts every time.
For all of these reasons, Fibrox Pro cutlery has been the choice of culinary professionals for decades, and also due in part to the fact that it is hygienic and dishwasher safe. The National Sanitary Foundation (NSF) certifies that this product is made to the highest sanitary standards, so you can cut with confidence.
Whether a seasoned, or novice home chef, Victorinox Swiss Army offers not only the right tools and the know-how, but most importantly, the confidence to achieve one’s culinary aspirations. Expertly crafted in Switzerland since 1884, Victorinox offers a lifetime guarantee against defects in material and workmanship.
Please NOTE that this item ships with the International item number 5.2063.20 on the blade and not 47520, 40520, 45520, or 47520.US2, but is the same 8"" Fibrox Pro Chef's Knife.
In 1937 Victorinox began selling cutlery in America through a Connecticut distributor called R.H. Forschner & Co. A well-known manufacturer of butcher scales, Forschner soon became the exclusive U.S. distributor for Victorinox knives, and was the name by which Victorinox knives were known.
In 2011 Victorinox began marketing all its product lines, including kitchen knives, under the common umbrella name by which the company is now popularly known – Victorinox Swiss Army.
Care and Use
Be good to your knives and they’ll be good to you. Following these simple guidelines will ensure that you get the longest life out of your knife!
Victorinox Swiss Army recommends washing all knives by hand. For best results, hand wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately.
While Fibrox Pro knives are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing as dishwashers are designed to spray water at a relatively high pressure, which can jostle the silverware and cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge.
Maintaining your Knife’s Edge
For optimum performance, knives should be honed after every couple of uses. Proper and frequent use of a honing steel will keep your knives sharper and performing at their best, but remember that a honing steel will not sharpen a dull knife. Honing steels are maintenance tools and are used to help keep an already sharp blade from degrading. During use, a knife edge becomes rolled or turned from direct contact with cutting boards, bones or other hard objects. In this case, honing is necessary to straighten the edge of the knife. After significant use, the steel particles become damaged and the edge cannot be brought back by honing, so sharpening is necessary. If your knives are dull, pitted, or you see visible nicks on the cutting edge, you’ll need to sharpen with a Swiss Sharp Handheld Sharpener (49002) or bring to a professional for re-sharpening.
History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable” and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.

Easy to sharpen.
I find it a better all round kitchen knife than the Global one we have been using.

A minor cons is that it came encased in a plastic package with no blade guard but that's just nitpicking.
This knife exceeded my expectations and finally gave me a taste of using a mid range knife instead of the cheap knives I was used to using my whole life. The first thing that I noticed was the blade quality. The blade is not too thick, but is very strong. On top of that, it shipped sharp and was immediately ready for use after unpacking. I still recommend sharpening it some more though.
The major con for this knife is the plastic handle. It looks like a cheap plastic molded handle and has an ugly matte texture. Although it feels pretty good in the hand, It feels like it will eventually fall apart.
This said, I am very satisfied with this knife, and I feel that it is well worth the $50 I paid for it.
The edge was OK (not great) for the first few slices but turned almost completely dull in no time cutting nothing but vegetables and chicken breast on a soft plastic cutting board.
Also it felt a bit light and uncomfortable in my hand.
Perhaps we got a defective one, not sure, in any case - the seller accepted a return and refunded us, so feel free to try your luck.
This doesn't disappoint - I'm really impressed with how well it works. The stock is fairly thin with a slight distal taper toward the tip, fully flat ground, and is ground at a very steep angle, all of which make it glide very well through vegetables, fish, and meat. The steel isn't the greatest - it seems to be made of the same stuff the average swiss army knife is made of, which wouldn't be surprising - but it takes an edge extremely easily and holds it well enough for whatever prep work I have to do at any given time. It also doesn't seem prone to rust after being left in the sink, and I don't have to worry about damaging the handle by leaving it soaking in water like I would with wood-handled knives. The handle is surprisingly comfortable and fits my large-ish sized hands really well - no hot spots or blisters after extended use.
The blade was pretty sharp, I could touch the blade and I could tell that I could get cut pretty easily if I move a little more compared to my cheap knife which would require a bit more force.
I don't know anything about how important length is, but the size felt quite right for me to slice my chicken, broccoli and cake on sad days.
The handle was a nice change from the other knives I've used as I could get a pretty good grip even when after I rinse the handle. Definitely something I've missed out on in the past.
I only received this knife a few days ago so I can't really talk about its durability and I don't know how sharp knives can get. Nonetheless, you really can't go wrong with getting this for yourself if you're an inexperienced cook like myself.
Recently though I've became vegan, which forced me to cook more. And I needed a good chef's knife mainly for all the veggies I'm cutting. My brother is a cook and he told me this one was good for the price, so I purchased it.
Holy macaroni. It's very hard to explain how much this knife is WORTH THE MONEY! Everytime I cut something, it just glides right through it. I don't even need to put any pressure on it. I used to have a hard time cutting potatoes, now it's just so satisfying and nice. I couldn't be more happy.
I always clean it by hand and dry it, as written on the package.
While I can't yet say how long it will last, everything about it looks and feels quality, and given how widely praised it is, I don't have too many doubts it will be effective for a number of years.
When a couple we are friends with came to live with us for a time they liked the knife so much that one bought the knife for the other as a birthday gift, because they had never realised that they had such crappy knives until using ours!
Un des meilleurs rapport qualité/prix sur le marché.
