What is NSF? A Stampled Knife is cut into a shape from a cold rolled piece of steel and then ground, tempered, and sharpened. It requires many less steps than forging and results in a lighter, narrower blade. Stamped knives are easier to produce and therefore less expensive. They perform very well and can approach the quality of a forged blade (but not the weight or feel). A stamped knife can usually be identified by the absence of a bolster. Victorinox manufactures a complete range of stamped blades with our unique Fibrox handle and are considered the greatest ?value? knife range in the industry. This range is marketed to the professional trade under the RH Forschner Brand.
Where are Victorinox knives made? Victorinox is the largest knife manufacturer in Europe and is located in Ibach, Switzerland. All Victorinox stamped Blades are manufactured in Switzerland. The exclusive forged range offers a unique partnership, whereby the knife is forged in Solingen, Germany (the heartland of hot drop forged cutlery) and is finished in Switzerland, including all quality control, polishing, and the famous Victorinox factory edge. This delivers the utmost quality product possible.
