Excuse the two for one review here folks. I bought the Victorinox 3.25" Paring Knife - 6.7603 AND Victorinox Wood Handle 3.25" Paring Knife - 40100. I wanted to see if it was exactly the same blade but with a different handle. It appears they are not. Different finish at the very least. There may be slight differences in the blade profile and cutting edge geometry, but if there is it is negligible. Please take into consideration I am not a knife guy or a chef. Just average end user. Both of these knives are certainly better than anything you would find on the isles of high volume big box and grocery stores. I am putting together a set of the Rosewood knives and I glad I know have the paring knife The synthetic version is a sweet number too. And at this price-point I will likely pickup a few more of them in the future. Picture attached shows both versions of the Victorinox Paring Knives mentioned, plus the big Victorinox 10" Wood Handle Chef's Knife - 40021 for reference.
