Our 8" Chef's Knife with a slip resistant fibrox handle is one of our most popular knives. This extremely versatile, multi-purpose knife is a must have in every kitchen. The long blade, constructed of high carbon stainless steel, is perfect for large chopping jobs and carries a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. The sanitary fibrox handles are textured to provide maximum grip and comfort and are NSF certified. Hand-washing recommended.
This review is from: Victorinox 47520 8" Chef's Knife
Pros: This isn't just a value knife, it's the essential knife that you should have. Go look at reviews from other kitchen testing resources such as Cooks Illustrated, and they'll tell you that Victorinox is their preferred brand not just for the home chef, but in their professional test kitchen.
Cons: None. See other thoughts
Other Thoughts: Hand feel is very important. If it's not comfortable for you to hold or feels too heavy or too light, you're not going to like the knife. Each person is different. This knife is on the medium-light side, but still feels quite solid. If you prefer a very heavy knife, this might not be for you, but that's not a "con" against the knife, that's just how the knife is made and your own personal taste. I think it's a nice balance between lightness and sturdiness.
