You guys that are using the Fibrox handles...
Do you find that the handles fall off the tang eventually?
I'm about to pull the trigger on the Victorinox 12" granton edge slicing knife. But I'm leaning towards the rosewood handle because I like riveted tangs and handles.
never. ever. ever. have I had this problem. and judging by them being used in a lot of cannery operations and commercial fishery operations (see the ones on ebay sold in bulk that are ground down to nearly non-existence like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-used-Victorinox-fibrox-knives-2-40512-2-40515-1-40517-1-40511-1-free-AS-IS-/272073459787?hash=item3f58d7884b:g:lB8AAOSwwE5WadwS) this just doesn't happen.
I love, love love love my victorinox fibrox knives. all 14 of them have been darn good. though on some of the chef knives I am used to more "heft" in the heel, they do the job supremely well.
