Best kitchen chef’s knife review. Don’t spend $100 on a knife. I did some research AND I am using this one now. It’s the real deal and a great value knife. Please like, comment, and subscribe if this helps, thanks!

This is the Victorinox Fibrox Professional series 8-inch chef’s knife used by many professional chefs and consistently rated as the best all-around kitchen knife. You may also find it under the “Forschner” series knives.
I found this one on Amazon for $30 shipped. It is an “eastern” or “asian” edge, which means this is a narrower edge than a “western” edge like the J.A. Henckels one I also have. This is a 15-degree edge which slips easily through all materials including heavy squashes and the like. It is a “fast” knife for chopping and general cooking use.
I’ve seen them with black, blue and red handles.
Also, it has a non-slip polymer “fibrox” handle which allows it to be dishwasher-safe and pretty bulletproof. Just use a sharpening steel to freshen the edge occasionally and maybe a full edge sharpening when needed.
