Victorinox, makers of the Original Swiss Army Knife, has been crafting fine cutlery since the late 1800s. In the U.S., the Victorinox professional line of stamped cutlery, known under the R.H. Forschner brand, has become the tool of choice for professionals and has received consistently high accolades in industry product testing. Now Victorinox master cutlers have applied their unique ingenuity and techniques to design the highest quality, forged cutlery line. This fine cutlery is hot-drop forged and ice tempered by master craftsmen in Solingen, Germany exclusively for Victorinox. It is then shipped to Ibach, Switzerland for application of Victorinox proprietary sharp edge and rigid quality control finishing. The result is a beautifully balanced, perfectly weighted full tang construction, an intuitively engineered comfortable handle, a high carbon, no stain, high polished forged steel blade with bolsterless edge that retains its razor sharpness – and the knives are beautifully designed because Victorinox knows that function and utility alone does not satisfy the heart.
