Seriously, stop reading reviews and buy this knife. Unless you're an exotic knife collector or a professional chef in a high-end restaurant, this is definitely the one you want. As with anything, there's a point of diminishing returns where each extra dollar starts getting you a lot less than one dollar of value. I would argue that the Victorinox Fibrox series hits that optimal value point for 99% of consumers. Sure, the handle is basic, but it's comfortable, durable and gets the job done. And yes, it may not be as sharp as carbon steel, but it holds an edge fantastically well and you'll never worry about rust or wince when someone drops it into the bottom of the sink.
