The Victorinox Hollow Edge Santoku 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 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. Our patented POM rivited handles are hygienic, dishwasher safe and slip-resistant. Victorinox manufactures a complete range of stamped blades with our unique POM rivited handle and are considered the greatest "value" knife range in the industry.
