The Victorinox (formerly Forschner*) 12-inch Wide-blade Granton-edge Roast Beef Slicing Knife features a Fibrox handle and extremely sharp semi-flexible blade that holds its edge.
The patented Fibrox handle is dishwasher safe and slip-resistant, even when wet. It is also NSF approved, as crevices that would offer hospitality to bacteria are minimized. As with all R.H. Forschner knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a natural fit.
Forschner knives all have high carbon, stainless steel blades that are hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. Each knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched, and finished. Victorinox uses a special tempering process to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again.
The long, thin, semi-flexible blade if this slicing/carving knife produces very little drag when cutting slices of turkey, ham, or beef.
