MAC - FISKARS Rollsharp Ceramic Knife Sharpener - SR2
When buying a knife, you likely think more about the blade than the handle, and rightfully so. However, the rosewood handle included on this 8" chef's knife from Victorinox will immediately draw your eye as it is lovely to look at - and it feels great in the hand as well. Getting back to the blade, you will find an 8-inch carbon steel blade with a rockered shape that is consistent with a traditional chef's knife. The steel is designed to hold its edge excellently, and the entire knife is backed by a lifetime warranty from Victorinox.
It is crucial to have a quality chef's knife in your kitchen, and it should be one that you like to look at as well, since it is going to spend so much time in your hands and out of the block. Pick up this high-quality Victorinox model with a rosewood handle and you will be thrilled with the product you receive.
Stainless Steel Blades
All steel blades are made of martensitic stainless steel. The basis for optimum function and durability of a blade, is the use of the correct steel alloy. The steel should deliver the perfect combination of cutting edge retention and corrosion protection. It should also be flexible, so it does not break during use.
The Rosewood collection from Victorinox combines ergonomic handles in a naturally strong raw material with ultrasharp, efficient blades. Long been considered an ideal material for knife handles, Wood is highly robust and gives each model a unique patterning. We prize the carefully hand-polished Wood knives for their comfortable feel and elegant look.
High-quality rosewood comes from India and is FSC-certified (controlled wood). This very hard wood is tough, durable and benefits from low shrinkage. It is also highly resistant to moisture.
Rosewood is an extremely robust, hard-wearing wood and, thanks to its naturally high oil content, is also highly resistant to moisture. To maximize the service life of knives with wooden handles, never wash them in a dishwasher.

Sharp! - I've had this for several months now and it still doing a great job slicing/dicing/chopping veggies and meats. I only hone it occasionally with matching rosewood sharpener. I can't imagine that more expensive knives can significantly do a better job.
