Victorinox Rosewood knives are stamped, 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 and can be resharpended over and over again. 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. The traditional rosewood handle is designed to provide maximum comfort featuring a carved handle design for extra durability.
