Description: The curved blade of a bird's beak paring knife is perfect for peeling, garnishing and decorating -- from apple coring to zucchini peeling, and a lot of small jobs in-between. This knife, also known as a tourne knife, is used to create an oblong-shaped cut for vegetables such as carrots, potatoes or squash that provides a distinctive and consistent appearance to the food item being served.
Designed for the rigors of restaurant and commercial kitchens, the Victorinox (R.H. Forschner) Fibrox series features high performance, high carbon, stainless steel blades with its patented Fibrox handle. This commercial-quality Victorinox Swiss Army knife is a mainstay in any kitchen. Preferred by culinary professionals worldwide, the Fibrox series are great knives for the economically-minded.
The Fibrox series has earned many distinctions. The Victorinox 8 inch Chef's Knife won the distinction of Best Value in the April, 2007 Cook's Illustrated test. Testers for this popular consumer magazine summarized their review by saying, "This is exactly what a knife is supposed to be." The August, 2009 Cook's Illustrated acclaims, "While it's easy to blow your budget on a fancy chef's knife, the inexpensive, lightweight Victorinox Fibrox remains the test kitchen favorite." America’s Test Kitchen loved it and gave it top marks in every category (handle, blade, slicing, chopping, mincing and butchering). It was also the only “Highly Recommended” knife in their “Inexpensive Chef’s Knives” category, where it won out over eight other knives, including offerings from premium brands like Wusthof and Henckels. It was "Highly Recommended" in the “Hybrid Chef’s Knife” category. Michael Chu from Cooking for Engineers also liked it, naming it “Best Value” in a extensive and comparative test between 11 different knives from some of the best German and Japanese brands around.
High carbon stainless steel blades are hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. The blade is tapered toward the tip and edge for precision cutting. The steel, along with the expert manufacturing processes, ensures a superior cutting edge that is easy to maintain.
The Fibrox handle, which is molded directly to a three-quarter tang for balance and strength, is dishwasher safe and slip resistant, even when wet. It is NSF approved, as crevices that would offer hospitality to bacteria are minimized. As with all Victorinox knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a comfortable, natural grip.

  • Mirror-polish, high-carbon, stainless steel blade is made to exacting standards for superior sharpness
  • Durable, lightweight Fibrox handle is textured for a secure, nonslip grip
  • NSF-certified knife meets the highest level hygiene standards for commercial kitchens
  • Made in Switzerland by Victorinox, manufacturers of the original Swiss Army knives
  • Lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship
