Victorinox is a global company that has stood for quality, functionality, innovation and iconic design for more than 130 years. Founded in Switzerland back in 1884, Victorinox has established itself as a recognized leader for long-lasting stamped and forged high-carbon stainless steel cutlery that will not rust or corrode. Why high-carbon stainless steel? This type of stainless steel can hold an edge longer than its other stainless steel counterparts, requiring less sharpening and holding an edge much longer.
Victorinox boasts a diverse catalog of products. Professional chefs have long loved the Fibrox line of knives, which feature an ergonomic, non-slip handle and are NSF approved. The Swibo line feature brightly colored yellow handles that are easy to spot in busy commercial kitchens. The best part? They’re also dishwasher safe. Other chefs enjoy the natural wood found in the Rosewood line, which give a smooth, warm finish that is comfortable to hold and effortlessly elegant.
For those chefs looking for forged knives, the Grand Maître is for you. Forged from a single piece of steel, these knives possess exceptional balance. Unlike stamped knives, forged knives feature a full tang construction, meaning you’ll have a single piece of steal stretching from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle. Forged knives also feature a bolster, which is a larger section of steel built as a way to keep the hand from slipping from the handle onto the blade. From chef knives to bread knives, boning knives and more, The Grand Maître line can exceed even the most discerning tastes in cutlery.
When you shop from Victorinox, you’re also helping to achieve your sustainability goals. Since the 1970s, the company has integrated environmental and energy management into its production plan. In 2008 the company was recognized for its efforts by the Swiss Environmental Foundation.
