Victorinox Fibrox vs. D-R Sani-Safe vs. Mundial 5100

jrad | Nov 13, 2010 01:10 PM

What are the pros/cons of each of these 10'' knives?

1. Victorinox Fibrox
2. Dexter-Russell Sani-Safe
3. Mundial 5100 Forged

I realize that the first 2 are stamped and the Mundial is forged, but they are all at a similar price point. I have an 8'' Victorinox Fibrox knife, and my only complaint is that it is very light.. not sure that I would necessarily like something heavier, as I've never tried, but that is just my impression from using it for a while.

So if you've used more than one of these on the list, which did you like better, and why?
-blade thickness, weight, etc..

Also, what is more common - 8'' chefs knife or 10''? I have an 8'' now as I mentioned, but I figure why not go for the 10''.

Edit - one more question - for the Dexter-Russells, what is the difference between the Basics and Sani-Safe line? Notice around a $10 price difference.. same knife but different handle?
