Howdy folks,

This is a pretty exciting drop for us. A few weeks ago, we created a poll for 'Top Kitchen Knives Under $150' and the Victorinox 8-inch Chef Knife won handily. Our buying team was able to source the entire series to make it available now. We were also able to get the shipping free in the US! We want to give a big thanks to everyone who voted in the poll, and to all that have joined the discussion about it to make it happen.

It's always in our interest to bring in products that the community wants, and we often use polls to let us know what products those are. So if you see a poll that's gaining traction, make sure to vote. We were able to make it available during our Kitchen Knives Discussion going on in the Cooking community right now so make sure to hop in and check it out.
(Check out the Talk Post & related poll here: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/2610/top-kitchen-knives-under-150-poll)

Thanks again and happy cooking!

When will this be available in the rest of EU there are so many drops but its always restricted so I can never join
I bought one of these years ago for my father in law, along with a couple other Victorinox kitchen knives. See, even though it was a gift for him, it was also a gift for ME. Every time we'd visit, all he'd have for us to prep with was full on dull cutlery - I mean, BLUNT. He has managed, after about 6 years, to finally blunt this one, but I took a 300 grit, 1000 grit, and 3000 grit set of stones on our last visit and hand sharpened it right back up (oh, leather strop too, with green polishing compound FWIW). WHEREVER you got one, get one. I have the 12 inch rosewood handle Chef's Knife, and even after 16 years I've NEVER had to do more than use a steel before and after I use it. 12 inches is a bit long for most every day kitchen jobs, that's part of the reason the edge has kept so well, and why I want the 8 inch version. So I can use it daily :)

I saw the Massdrop on French Guy Cooking and decided now was the time. Thanks French Guy!
here cuz of the french guy. thank u french guy.
I have the slicing knife for brisket. Its a really good knife for large pieces of meat.
only on this page because a french told me to have a look.
French guy recommended a good knife here
Just so everyone knows a number of these knives are available for cheaper on Amazon. I know for sure this is the case for the filet knife and boning knives. Maybe some others, but I didn't check all. The chefs knife, santoku, cimetar, and butchers knife appear to be a good deal
You would think that in the picture you would have the model at least holding the knife like they knew what they were doing. Lordie, someone going to cut himself.
What about shipping overseas? (I'm in Chile)
It's a great knife for a wide range of skill levels (cooking). I passed mine on to my parents after a professional sharpening and they love it. As for the image... What kind of grip is that?! Don't be like the model, y'all. https://www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/11/how-to-hold-a-knife/
amazon has it for 31 dollars... not THAT great of savings
Not so good deals but this is the best of the current Kitchen Knives drop.
The Cimeter is identical to one I've used in a restaurant setting... Very solid. Wish they had the preposterously oversized version of the butcher that I can't find anywhere, but that has limited home applications anyway.
If you want to save just a few bucks per a knife you can get them from: http://www.cabelas.com/product/VICTORINOX-FIBROX-RETAIL-KNIVES/2031546.uts?productVariantId=3028675&WT.tsrc=PPC&WT.mc_id=GoogleProductAds&WT.z_mc_id1=03302336&rid=20&gclid=Cj0KCQiAgZTRBRDmARIsAJvVWAuenlZp3EfxGR7EYPD0wfszFJ49nQt9ySY9YIB-Z4Teof3zoqapujoaAgXkEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Cabelas even has free shipping as well, and if you happen to live near a Cabelas they offer free knife sharpening in store

Idk man, that's $15 more with $8 shipping. I think it assumes I'm American too. I've looked into getting this knife in the past and I've never been able to get it + shipped home for less than $65 AUD. This was a little under $50 AUD total.
The real issue is that it takes Massdrop a month to source the knives. I thought they were supposed to have arrangements done beforehand. Hopefully it require circumnavigation as well.
I have the whole set and I love them all, they cut everything really smoothly.
There are more expensive knives that are not as good but there are no cheaper knives better than these victorinoxs
The 8 inch Chef is recommended by America's Test Kitchen as best all around chef's knife. My Dad grew up a butcher and loves the fibrox Victorinox knives.
Most of these knives are indeed cheaper at Amazon, however, the butcher and cimeter are not. Depending on the source both are actually ~ $10-20 more.

I own the butcher knife already and it's easily the sharpest knife I've ever owned, including filet knives. Very tempted to pick up the Cimeter as well.
