Best Quality Chef Knives under $60

If you are looking to buy a quality Chef Knife at an affordable price listen to what the reviewers are saying. In this case they like: Forschner Victorinox ($35.51) and the Wusthof Gourmet ($79.95 - ok a bit more than $60, but worth the price).

Cook's Country Magazine Review:

Cook's Country Magazine (sister magazine to Cook's Illustrated) chose these two budgetary chef knives after a test trial:

1. Forschner Victorinox Fibrox 8"Chef's Knife

Priced from: $35.51

About this knife:

What the test kitchen experts said- "Premium-quality knife at a bargain price. Knives costing four times as much would be hard pressed to match in performance."

Blade - Forshner blades are made of high carbon, stainless steel that are hand finished by skilled craftsmen in Switzerland. The blades are sharp and are made using a special tempering process that produces an edge that can be sharpened repeatedly.
Handle - This knife uses a NSF approved Fibrox handle. It is slip resistant, hygienic, and dishwasher safe. The handle is also designed to minimize tension in the wrist.

2. Wusthof Gourmet 8" Chef's Knife

Priced from: $79.95

About this knife:

The Gourmet knife line consists of Wusthof quality, but offers consumers the the quality behind the Wusthof name at an affordable price. Wüsthof Gourmet Cook's Knife is stamped versus hand forged. This method allows for a lower price point as manufacturing is done primarily by machine. Made in Germany.

Blade - High Carbon, Stainless steel, stain resistant
Handle - Traditional 3 rivet design, hygenic plastic, slip resistant
