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 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!

I respect your honesty. If you end up getting this somewhere else let me know. Or even if you end up getting different knives feel free to share what you end up doing. 👍
It looks like the shipping only adds on the first two knives, if you're buying a set or going in with someone else, it may still be worth it.
Hi guys who owns this where are they made? All swiss?
. Something's odd. Looks like the manufacturer matches its prices on Amazon. And guess what? On Amazon, it only takes days to be delivered. .
The pictures are presented very poorly. Go to Amazon to look at a better close up of the pictures of the products. And then decide.
Where does this ship from? (as this affects import fees)
Bought this knife (8" Chef) elsewhere (as I've mentioned elsewhere) and after using for a week or so, I now know precisely who this knife was created for: people who like to sharpen their knives--a lot!
This thing holds it's edge like a Daniel Steele romance novel holds my attention (as in: not at all). Great knife otherwise, and as the guy in video suggests, it's definitely a beater!
If you want a Victorinox paring knife but also want the Fibrox handle instead of the smooth plastic they normally have, check out their 4" Rabbit knife. It's short enough to use as a paring knife and I like the Fibrox when your hands get messy or wet. https://www.amazon.com/Victorinox-Cutlery-4-Inch-Rabbit-Utility/dp/B0019X3I3S/

Ooooo thank you for this, I just ordered some Victorinox knives a couple weeks ago and didn't see this! May add it or return the paring knife. Thanks again!
Why no international shipping again?

Got my 7” Santoku today and it’s diferent from the pictures and the other Victoriox knives I have. Don’t come with the bird logo engraved and the NSF seal’s missing! Total Bummer
Ordered from France. Never received it. Everybody is blaming other people for it.
I have the 8’ chef knife and I love it!

should've bought a broad sword

Don’t poke the bear!
This is about the price I got for an international model 8" chef knife off ebay a year ago, only I didn't pay $6USD for tax and shipping. Seems like a solid workhorse, although I gave it as a gift. Good value. I wouldn't throw away that $6 though.
I want it to deliver in India. Can I?
Just a note, if you've got a good stone, like a King 1k/6k and steady hand to sharpen these, or a guided sharpening system, a 20 degree edge on the chef's knife is definitely a sweet spot for the steel.
AngryAccountant
agrees that 19-20 degree preside is good for 4110 type steel. This steel is way too soft to take a good edge. Get it beyond 15 degrees and it just rolls. but it does NOT chip so it's great for cutting hard squash, separating lobster, etc. A preety good knife for a barbque or a picnic!
If you get a chance you should try a wusthof pro. Better steel, better ergonomics, better handle material. MUCH better knife and LESS money. Less likely to be stolen at a pot luck because of that stupid Americas test Kitchen video! And of course getting better steel or forged knives is better, but a fiberox makes a GREAT "beater" knife

Yeah I had it at 17 degrees for a month before backing off to 20 degrees. Just degraded too quick, but the 20 is keeping. And yeah, not a chip in sight.
For once, I am not disapointed about the lack of international shipping. We can buy these at any Migros supermarket here in Switzerland ;)
sorry, but you can get these knives on Amazon for the same price or cheaper, and get it faster with Prime shipping.

Except prices on Amazon are constantly variable and I'm sure by the time this drop ends and knives are in people's hands, this knife will have been available at a more reasonable price quite often. $43 is highway robbery for this knife, honestly $30 is a stretch, I'm sure its an inventory issue.

Fair point.
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/

My guess is that's what's known as the "let the customers see as much of the product as possible, don't worry how silly it looks, no one will notice" grip lol
Little do they understand the level of scrutiny by knife nuts hahaha
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.

The vict butcher's knife is awesome for cutting fillets. The extra weight at the tip means all you need to do is aim and let the knife do the work. It also functions as a small machette.
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.
