    I purchased this knife and an 8-inch chef’s knife (Forschner) at the same time, thinking that the 8-incher would be my primary knife. Everyone in the family uses this 6″ knife all the time. It fits the hand so well and chops veggies superbly. A great bargain too.

    I bought this knife primarily for cutting up chickens, which it handles with ease. It outshines my cheapo chef’s knife from college so much that I’ve been using it for all of my slicing and dicing until I can get the 8-inch version. The six-inch blade is a bit small for some tasks, so it’s better as a compliment to a larger knife rather than a replacement. It’s a great knife to have around when a chef’s knife is too big for the job. You really have to work to get the knife to slip out of your hand; the Fibrox is an amazing material. Also note that the blade is angled somewhat from the handle, which keeps your fingers from hitting the cutting board when you’re slicing.

    Though lightweight, this is the PERFECT knife to have in your kitchen. It is extremely sharp and an ideal size for everyday work. I bought the 8″ one as well but I find myself using the 6″ the most; it is thinner and therefore less bulky to use. The only thing I’ve had to get used to is its weight. I’m used to a heavier knife but the quality of the blade makes up for his lightness.

    The size of this knife is so handy that I find I go for it more often then my 8 inch chefs knife. Even though I have large hands I still find this knife comfortable to use. The Fibrox handle is wonderful even with slippery hands. When I saw an old school celebrity french chef tended to use a knife this size rather often, I decided to give it a try. I was not disapoionted. I have never seen a 6 inch chefs knife in any set. It’s worth it to buy the single knife.

    This Victorinox 6-Inch Chef’s knife is a great value because it is extremely sharp, holds an edge, and lasts forever. It saves money with more expensive meats because it allows you to leave the meat as intact as possible by quickly and cleanly removing only silverskin, fat, and gristle. No, it is not as good as the Wusthof 6-inch Classic Chef’s knife, but the Wusthof is for cooks who are in the kitchen every single day, and the Wustof Classic series enjoys one great advantage over its other kitchen competitors — balance.

    Still, I strongly recommend this Victorinox 6-inch knife because it is well made and tough. For the price, it can’t be beat!

    We have 3 other Forschner knives (8″ Chef’s knife & (2) 3.5″ paring knives). Like the other knives, the 6″ is well balanced, sharp, and holds its edge. It may take you a while to get used to using a knife this sharp. You have to use very little pressure behind the knife to slice anything. I use both our 8″ & 6″ regularly. The 6″ is the choice for quick vegetable prep and the heavier weight of the 8″ works great on meats and harder vegetables like butternut squash.

    We purchased the 6″ knife because the 8″ Chef’s knife was a bit unnerving for my wife. Being a lot sharper than any other knife we’ve owned (we’ve gotten rid of our other chef’s knives after getting Forschners), she was always worried about cutting herself with the bigger knife. She has small hands and the 6″ is the perfect size for her. Now that we have both, we wouldn’t get rid of either. The 6″ knife was a great addition to our kitchen.

    Bought this knife after buying and using the 8 inch, top rated chefs knife. I was hoping for an equally good, useful but smaller knife — and got it!

    At first the knife seemed to be really light, and it is, much lighter than the 8 inch. But there are no compromises on strength or quality. The handle is the same material (Fibrox) as the 8 inch and really easy to hold onto if your hand gets wet or greasy.

    The blade is/stays sharp like it’s bigger brother. I found it easier to cut a bagel with this knife than with the bread knife I usually use. Last night I sliced up a large roast Boston Butt and the 6 incher did the job as well as the larger knife, especially with near the bone cuts, where the smaller blade was easier to use.

    All in all, another great knife from Forschner!

    This line of knives are the best I have ever had. For the price you can’t go wrong with any of these knives. I also own 3 1/4″ and 4″ paring knives, 8″ and 10″ chef’s knives and a bread knife from this company. They are all great, but the 6″ is my favorite. It fits well in my hand and is perfect for slicing or chopping vegetables. Makes cutting through potatos like cutting through soft butter. I like the 8″ for cutting up chickens. The paring knives are a dream for peeling apples and pears. An occational swipe across a shapening steel keeps these knives like new.

    This is a wonderful knife. I don’t think I’ve used a really good knife since I was growing up. My dad was a master cook and always had good knives that he kept razor sharp, but I’ve never owned a good set of knives. I wanted to buy some good quality kitchen knives but didn’t want to spend hundreds of dollars, so I started reading reviews here and other places online. The Forschner knives had great reviews and I liked the idea of the Fibrox handle, which is slightly textured. I feel like I made a great choice. The knife is sharp, lightweight, and has good balance. The Fibrox handle is perfect for me; easy to grip and non-slip. I have arthritis and some weakness in my hands so knives with wooden or hard handles hurt my hands. This knife is a joy to use; it makes slicing and chopping for meals fun and easy and I find myself cooking more because of it. I intend to buy more of this line of knives. Highly recommended.

    Several months ago I purchased the 10″ version of this knife and wanted a smaller one for small jobs, so I purchased this one. I used it today in preparing a potato salad and I was AMAZED how it just slid through the potatoes, onion, and other ingredients with almost zero resistance. Just keep in mind that it’s VERY sharp – it sliced through one potato so fast that I didn’t have time to adjust and it sliced my hand open. Trust the reviews on here – this is a great knife!!
