Victorinox is stamped, (floppy blade). It's used as a"house knife" owned by the company. It's also the #1 owned by butchers because of non slip.

Mercer is one of the student kits at every culinary school in the US and 90% in the world.
Cooks and chefs own mercers. The company owns the Vickies. Cooks hate vickies

Mercer is harder (retains edge longer) it is FORGED, (not floppy) had a much more ergonomic handle, has a better handle material.

Is this a serious comment? You take the guy to task for not offering useful information then give zero useful information of your own. With that condescending tone, this would be perfect parody.

I have several chef's knives some of them costing 3 times more than this knife. I love this knife it sharpens well it's stay Sharp it's thin so it cuts through tough stock with ease. If you leave it with a drop of water on it after cleaning it doesn't have a tendency to form rust spots which other good knives do.

The rust bit is largely about metal composition. A high carbon steel knife will tarnish/rust more easily than a stainless knife, but it will also stay sharper and flex less than a stainless blade.

HI guys,

HU: the 8' knife does not have a finger guard by the bolster. Some will find that guard more convenient when he sharpens it on a water stone.

Cheers,
TL

8' knife?
Is that considered a katana?
Is that what you, sir TekkenLord, wield as your weapon of choice?

How does this compare to the Victorinox I see recommended frequently? Any working cooks have experience with this one?

The X50CrMoV15 steel quality should be very similar/close to Victorinox(X55CrMoV15) unless their heat treating is subpar.

But there's always other factors like the grind profile and angles.

I've got the Vic as my day-to-day but have used a friends Mercer(this same one) about 10x. I prefer the Vic overall but I wouldn't complain too loudly if I was magically forced to swap it for the Mercer Smilie It's mostly the handle, I'd say...but not by much.

I love my non-short bolster 8" Genesis. I don't know that I need another chef knife in this size, but I'd definitely recommend anyone on the fence pick this up.

I own both and use only the Mercer now. The Victorinox is just my backup knife or for watermelon or things I don't want to dull the Mercer on.

The Mercer has more weight and heft, giving a better sense of control

This knife is forged. The Victorinox is stamped.
