Victorinox Forschner 40003 Kitchen Utility Knife, Rosewood Handle, Wavy Blade. Victorinox (Forschner) utility knife with 4-3/4"" blade and rosewood handle. A serrated or wavy cutting edge is excellent for cutting foods that are hard on the outside and soft inside, such as bread, bagels, tomatoes, sausage, etc. As with all Victorinox knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a natural fit. Hand-washing of wooden handles is recommended.
The blade has an exceptionally keen, razor-sharp serrated edge. The high carbon, stainless steel blade is hand finished by skilled craftsmen at Victorinox in Switzerland. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again. Each Victorinox knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished.
This Victorinox product, which is made in Switzerland, has been marketed in the U.S. under the R.H. Forschner brand name since 1937. As of 2009, it is now being sold in the U.S. under the Victorinox brand name. It was Forschner 40003, and is now Victorinox 40003."
