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. ūüĎć
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.
Ordered from France. Never received it. Everybody is blaming other people for it.
I have the 8’ chef knife and I love it!
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.

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
