Stylish cutlery is key to have an attractive, memorable dinner, and it's hard to get any more stylish than with this Rosewood santoku knife by Victorinox. The handle is made of rosewood, which not only looks great, but is lightweight and durable as well. The color and grain patterns in the wood give the handle a very natural beauty, and adds personality to the table. The blading itself is constructed of stainless steel, which provides a high durability and a sharp edge, and resists corrosion and degradation. Santoku roughly translates to three uses or virtues, in reference to the it's ability to slice, dice, and mince. It is a Japanese blade that is finding favor in Western kitchens, often replacing the Chef's knife.
Previously known as RF Forschner, Victorinox knives are made in Switzerland by the makers of the original Swiss Army Knife. Stemming from pure necessity, Master Cutler Karl Elsner began producing the Original Swiss Army Knife in 1891 to meet the needs of soldiers on the field. Since then, Victorinox has become a fine cutlery company true to its Swiss roots and professional cutlery precision, quality, functionality and versatility. Victorinox is in the hands of more professionals, from the meatpacking industry to a four-star restaurant, than any other brand of cutlery.
