Victorinox Forschner 40039 Butcher Knife, Breaking, Curved, Rosewood Handle, 8.0 Inch Blade. The Victorinox 40039 Breaking Knife is perfect for portioning out larger cuts of meat. The breaking knife is meant to be used for breaking large sides down into smaller roasts, steaks, briskets, and more. Great for most meat processing applications! With an 8 inch curved blade, made lighter and thinner through stamped construction, this breaking knife is conveniently sized to tackle smaller jobs while being long enough to power through thick sides and tougher tasks.
It has a rosewood handle, adding a touch of class to any culinary setting. 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 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 40039, and is now Victorinox 40039.
