The Swiss Classic Collection features precision laser cut, stamped blades, known for their thinness and light weight, preferred by many chefs. All blades are cut from a single piece of rolled stainless steel. Each knife is then finished in Switzerland to extremely high tolerances consistent with all Victorinox Swiss knives. The handle is made using Fibrox material acclaimed in the food service industry for its excellent combination of excellent ergonomics and anti-slip properties to make all knife work easy and precise. All Victorinox Fibrox handles are certified by the National Sanitation Foundation.
