Product description

A great all-rounder. The 8" Swiss Classic Chef’s Knife can handle nearly every kitchen task imaginable, with its incredibly sharp edge and textured, ergonomic handle, each cut is like slicing through butter. “Recommended” 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 razor sharp edge that rarely requires re-sharpening.

We’ve selected the best attributes derived from our rich commercial heritage and modified them to suit the home chef. The Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss Classic collection offers a contemporary handle, inspired by our patented Fibrox Pro line. Designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure grip, the contoured nylon handle is both lightweight and durable, making these knives seem less likes tools and more like an extension of your hand.

Offering perfect balance and featuring the same world-renowned blade as found on our Fibrox Pro line, the 8" Swiss Classic Chef’s Knife provides a professional-grade tool optimized for home use. The tapered knife edge is ground in two directions to hold a sharp edge longer, and can easily be brought back to its original sharpness.

An all-purpose chef's knife is an essential tool in every kitchen. The 8" Swiss Classic Chef’s Knife is optimally weighted with high-quality, lightweight European steel that reduces hand and wrist fatigue, making it comfortable even after extended use in the home kitchen. 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 inches, 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.

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 6.8063.20 on the blade and not 6.8063.20US1, but is the same 8" Swiss Classic Chef's Knife.

Formerly Forschner
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!

Hand Washing
Victorinox Swiss Army recommends washing all knives by hand. For best results, hand wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately.

Dishwasher
While Swiss Classic 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great value at Rs 2688 but needs lots of care and maintenance.
Reviewed in India on 24 July 2019
UPDATE 17th June 2020 After almost a year of usage, the knife still works good. I use it every single day. Only thing is, it needs sharpening once a week. The knife dulls very fast.

Original review: Disappointing packing. The knife tip was poking out of the plastic cover, handle has a bad scratch. I don't understand why a Rs 3000 item is sent this way.
Coming to the knife. The edge is super sharp. Always need to use a chopping board to prevent it from getting blunt faster. Weight is perfect even with such a huge size. Doesn't make your hand tired at all even with continuous use. Durability needs to be tested, even though Victorinox is a trusted name. Also remember that 6.8036.20US1 and 20B are same. It's just that The latter is a bulk ordered knife by the seller and hence cheaper.
Hope this review is helpful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good at first, but loses its razor edge in no time...
Reviewed in India on 9 January 2020
Badly scratched n brown dirt smudges on the blade, after washing i noticed many scratches on the blade although i cant feel the scratches by touching it, i dont blame the seller for that, the manufacturer shouldve put a transparent cover on top to protect the blade.
As for the build quality, as you may have heard its pretty good, thick blade on top thinned down to the tip.
Angle seems to be 20° imo, doesnt feel like a 15°.
Im not sure if it holds its edge for very long, i could see difference in its cutting power after just one use, right out of the box its razor sharp n it was able to cut through even thin paper like butter, but the next day it had trouble doing the same.
And after honing with the rod it seems to have totally lost that
I think it needs a strop along with a rod to keep that razor feel, without it its just another knife... with good quality steel, weight, nice non slip handle.
About the handle, although they advertise the swiss classic as "for home cooks" or "for people with small hands" it didnt feel uncomfortable in my hands, i think youd have to be a giant to really need the fibrox pro handle.
Another thing, i dont think victorinox handheld sharpener would go well with this knife, that thing shaves away metal in no time, again i think you'd need a leather strop if you like the easy sharpening with those v shape sharpeners to give it a razor feel, imo a sharpening stone is much better to use with this knife, the first time i saw the blades edge i immediately thought its perfect to use on a japanese whetstone :)
One more weird thing is that on the back of the cover the 20b knife is marked as carving knife, not as chef knife :/
