This Editor-Favorite Chef’s Knife Can Slice Through Just About *Everything* — and It’s 37% off Right Now
If you haven’t noticed, the weather is finally getting warmer, which can only mean one thing: the CSA boxes will be arriving on your doorstep anytime now. But before you start digging in, you’ll need a sharp knife handy to break down all that produce. And if you’re looking for the perfect everyday knife, we have just the pick for you: Victorinox’s Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife. It’s a favorite with Kitchn editors and even made it to our Best List. Given all its pros, the knife is already affordably priced, but for a limited time, it’s an additional 37 percent off, making it one of those deals you simply don’t want to miss!
Made using Victorinox’s high-quality technology, the magic of this knife lies in its blade that’s cut from a single piece of steel rather than forged. This simply means that it requires more time and labor to create these knives, ensuring that it’s an investment you’ll be using for years to come. And while the knife is technically dishwasher safe, you’ll want to hand wash it to make sure it lasts as long as possible. The 8-inch size is great for bigger jobs like dicing veggies and cutting meat, but since it’s a fine blade, it’s also a pro at smaller tasks like mincing shallots and slicing herbs. Lastly, the knife comes with a utilitarian non-slip plastic handle that gives you a super firm grip while you’re slicing and dicing.
As Kitchn’s features director Ariel Knutson noted when she tested the Victorinox knife, “It’s lighter than what I’m used to (mostly because of the plastic handle), but it cut everything with ease and felt good in my hand (the most important thing, in my opinion).” Aside from Ariel, even our editor-in-chief, Faith Durand, loves her Victorinox knife and has used it for over 10 years! Faith noted just how comfortable it is to use and how inexpensive it is to replace if you (as she once did … ) leave it behind in a vacation rental.
So if you’re looking for a foolproof chef’s knife that’ll slice through just about everything, then you absolutely can’t go wrong with this pick. And at just $33.99, it’s totally worth it!
