A small "mini" chef's knife -- super handy for those small tasks where you want something more than a paring or utility knife, with more of the feel of a real chef knife. Don't be fooled by its size, the 5" Fibrox Chef's Knife by Victorinox Swiss Army is just as strong, versatile, and essential to the kitchen as any larger knife. The high-carbon stainless steel blade allows it to perform a number of tasks without compromising its sharpness. YES, this is the knife series that is so highly recommended by Cook's Illustrated magazine! A heavy-duty, affordable, and high performance knife. At the price, it's really hard to go wrong! Makes a great starter knife for a student moving away from home, or for a culinary school student who needs something rugged and affordable. Slip Resistant Fibrox Handle. Wash by hand, dishwasher not recommended.
