They are expertly made and they will be a wonderful addition to your kitchen collection. If you’ve been considering a ceramic blade knife to complement your cutlery selection, now you have a good reason to make your purchase.
Here are the details from Victorinox Swiss Army Company:
Victorinox Swiss Army
For over 100 years, Victorinox Commercial Cutlery has become the tool of choice for professionals, and the brand continues to innovate with the introduction of the new ceramic blade collection featuring proprietary Fibrox® handles. Ceramic blades have recently gained popularity due to their outstanding edge retention and resistance to corrosion and acids.
Our ceramic blades are manufactured from high-purity zirconium oxide powder, compressed at very high pressures and sintered in furnaces at temperatures over 2700° F. The result is an extremely hard blade that is comparable to the hardness of a diamond. Each knife is then equipped with our Classic Victorinox Fibrox handle with signature textured grip, helping reduce the chance of slippage. And with the handle designed to minimize wrist tension while still providing legendary cuts, it’s no wonder that Victorinox Commercial Cutlery remains the true “choice of professionals”.
