Victorinox Forschner 40117 Fillet Knife, Rosewood Handle, 7 Inch Straight Blade. The Victorinox 40117 Fillet Knife takes the performance and functionality of the traditional boning knife and ups the ante by being thinner, more flexible, and better suited for preparing fish. A specialized knife in the sense that it works extremely well along the backbone and under the skin of fish, the fillet knife is a favorite in the kitchen for just that reason. Picking the right fillet knife can mean keeping precious product that would otherwise get wasted, saving on preparation time, and avoiding ugly and unnecessary accidents. The Victorinox 40117 Fillet Knife has a straight, stamped blade, providing a thinner, lighter knife. With a classy carved rosewood handle, and a 7 inch long blade, it's conveniently sized and comfortably equipped to suit either an experienced chef or a budding novice.
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 40117, and is now Victorinox 40117.
