Sized between a typical chef’s knife and a utility knife, the 5" Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife is the perfect blend of the two, offering versatility that makes it a great all-purpose knife, essential to any kitchen. The width of the blade, which is slightly wider than a standard utility knife, offers added heft needed for larger tasks, while the shorter blade length allows for better maneuverability than an 8" chef’s knife, especially when performing more precise cutting tasks. The result is an extremely versatile knife that is equally suited for skinning a pineapple or watermelon, dicing onions, mincing shallots, chopping herbs, cubing fruit, or slicing meats of many varieties. The razor sharp blade slices through veggies and meat like butter, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself reaching for this knife every time you’re cooking. Each knife is incredibly sharp, featuring a tapered knife edge that is ground in two directions to hold a sharp edge longer, and can easily be brought back to its original sharpness. The overall shape of the blade, with the signature long, sloping curve chef’s knives are known for, lends itself to “rocking” very well, allowing one to mince and chop with ease. Comfortable even after extended use in the kitchen, the 5" Fibrox Pro 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. The ergonomic, non-slip patented Fibrox Pro handle provides a comfortable grip no matter the size of your hand or where you are gripping the handle. Designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure grip, the Fibrox Pro handle is both lightweight and durable. Offering perfect balance, the textured handle feels secure even when greasy or wet, leaving you feeling in control to make precise and effortless cuts every time. For all of these reasons, Fibrox Pro cutlery has been the choice of culinary professionals for decades, and also due in part to the fact that it is hygienic and dishwasher safe. The National Sanitary Foundation (NSF) certifies that this product is made to the highest sanitary standards, so you can cut with confidence. 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 against defects in material and workmanship. Please NOTE that this item ships with the International item number 5.2003.12 on the blade and not 47552 or 40552, but is the same 5" Fibrox Pro Chef's Knife. The only difference is how the knife is packaged. This knife is packaged in a clamshell package. 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. Dishwasher While Fibrox Pro knives are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing as dishwashers are designed to spray water at a relatively high pressure, which can jostle the silverware and cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge. Maintaining your Knife’s Edge For optimum performance, knives should be honed after every couple of uses. Proper and frequent honing will keep your knives sharper and performing at their best, but remember that a honing steel will not sharpen a dull knife. Honing steels are maintenance tools and are used to help keep an already sharp blade from degrading. During use, a knife edge becomes rolled or turned from direct contact with cutting boards, bones or other hard objects. In this case, honing is necessary to straighten the edge of the knife. After significant use, the steel particles become damaged and the edge cannot be brought back by honing, so sharpening is necessary. If your knives are dull, pitted, or you see visible nicks on the cutting edge, you’ll need to sharpen with a Swiss Sharp Handheld Sharpener (49002) or bring to a professional for re-sharpening. History and Heritage In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutlers’ union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier’s Knife and in 1897 with the Officer’s Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as “inoxydable” and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born. Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.

Over the years I have purchased many different quality knives. I own Shun, Henkel, Global and New West Knives. I have loved most of them. I seem to have a favorite in each line. We do keep them sharp. My husband is as fussy as me about good, sharp knives.
In December, for my birthday, a girlfriend gave me the 4" serrated and the 3" paring. They were so sharp and it was effortless to cut almost anything. It's only limit was the size of the food.
Well, I loved the knives so much that I purchased a 6" & 8" chef's knife. I love each one for different reasons. One warning: your fingers are going to have lots of little cuts all over. No matter how careful I was, I still got cuts. I even cut my wrist once when I dropped the knife while I was drying it. That was the worst one. For the first month, I wore a lot of band aids.
My sister claimed it was because I wasn't a skilled chef! Well, I bought her three knives for Christmas. Even she got several cuts over the first month.
So recently I was buying a couple more sets as birthday gifts for family and friends. That is when I saw the 5" chef knife from Victorinox. I had never seen this size in all my searching. So, when I saw it, I wanted to try it. Currently, my husband and I are fighting over it every night. We decided we need a second one to end the dilemma. I still do use my other brands of knives. However, no where near as often.
