Made by stamping out a single piece of alloyed metal that is then hardened, tempered, ground and polished completed with the Fibrox handle that has an ergonomic and slip resistant finish. I have one of these that is dated back to the early 70’s and I just finished cutting up an 8 pound loin into 2 large roasts and 9 thick loin chops in less than 15 minutes, which includes wrapping and loading into the freezer, what an easy task with the right tool. Make sure you look over all of the Swiss made  Victorinox Knives, for any of your kitchen cutting jobs.
