Victorinox Forged Knife Block Set of 8 Much of the work that produced this 8-piece Knife Block Forged set from Victorinox actually happened in Solingen, the cutlery capitol of Germany. Forged from German high carbon stainless steel, the knives undergo final shaping and polishing in Switzerland.

The fundamentals of these knives match the quality of well-known German cutlery products. The appearance of the Victorinox knives isn't markedly different, since the same full tang construction and triple-riveted black polymer handles are used here as well. Finishing steps and quality control standards applied in Switzerland yield knives of consistently high quality. The assortment chosen for the block also covers a better range of tasks than a typical eight-piece block from the German competition. Instead of the usual three small utility and paring knives, Victorinox offers one paring knife and one boning knife with full-sized blades making up the rest of the set. Overall, that's a generous and practical selection designed to meet immediate needs, not create more.

Knives given include 3-1/2-inch paring, 6-inch plain edge boning knife, 8-inch slicing/carving and chef's knives, and one 9-inch bread or pastry knife. Other tools include kitchen shears, sharpening steel, and the nine-slot hardwood block. This leaves two open slots in the block for expansion of the set with blades of your choice.

The forged Victorinox knife does weigh slightly more than the equivalent stamped blade but has a classic look and a technically stronger blade. The forged bolster adds strength, and the reduced profile of the bolster gives complete access to the blade edge. Stain-free blades require ordinary maintenance with the sharpening steel and should be washed and dried by hand, not in the machine.
