Victorinox 8 Inch Rosewood Chef's Knife


An all-purpose chef’s knife is an essential tool in every kitchen.  The 8" Rosewood Chef’s Knife can handle nearly every kitchen task  imaginable, with its incredibly sharp edge and perfectly ergonomic  handle, each cut is like slicing through butter.

Beautiful and  authentic to our heritage, each knife in our Rosewood collection is  truly a work of art. The well-balanced handles and high quality,  lightweight European stainless steel blades have been hallmarks of our  cutlery for over 130 years and yet are an intelligent, modern  alternative to heavier cutlery. They are the perfect addition to any  kitchen that you won’t want to stick in a drawer, or make the perfect  gift any recipient would cherish.

While traditional and  elegant, our Rosewood Collection doesn't get by on good looks alone. The  tapered knife edge is ground in two directions to hold a sharp edge  longer, while the ergonomic handle shape improves grip making each cut  that much more comfortable.

The 8" Rosewood 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 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 5.2060.20 on the blade and  not 47020, 40020, or 5.2060.20RUS3, but is the same 8" Rosewood 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.

In general, high-quality cutlery should not be run through the dishwasher for the following reasons:

  • The  detergents used are very strong degreasers, especially in the case of  wood handles; they can be stripped of their natural oils, causing them  to split or crack.
  • Dishwashing machines are designed to spray  water at a relatively high pressure, which can jostle the silverware and  cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge.
