When my husband and I were getting married we registered for a $350 knife set. My generous aunt bought it for us and gave it to me at my bridal shower. We cook almost every day so we were excited to finally have some good knives. They were definitely a step up from what we had been using.
One evening my best friend and her boyfriend came over to cook dinner with us. They were using our knives to cut sweet potatoes and while trying to cut they asked if we had a sharper knife. I was really surprised by that question! I mean, we got a $350 knife set…surely it could cut some sweet potatoes, right? WRONG! I watched them use all their strength to get the knife through them. I was so embarrassed! It really bothered us so my husband started doing some research on good quality sharp knives that wouldn’t break the bank.
That’s when he came across the Victorinox 8 Inch Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife on Amazon. It had awesome reviews and was so affordable! It has an ergonomically designed handle, so it’s easy to hold and comfortable in your hand. 8 inches is the perfect multipurpose size, cutting both large and small objects effortlessly.
We have been using it for almost a year now and it cuts through everything with ease…even sweet potatoes, thank the Lord!
