Victorinox 10 1/4″ Curved, Granton Edge Cimeter Butcher Knife VN40632

No Comments 25 Nov 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Butcher Knife

It’s that time of year when you have family and friends over for the big meals and in most cases there will be large portions of meat involved.  If you belong to one of the shopping clubs you can usually get good deals on large portions of meat, but you may have to cut it up yourself, let me show you the easy way.

This cimeter features a 10 1/4″ curved blade that is made from  high carbon steel, meaning it has a sharp edge and will retain it, but it also has the Granton edge meaing it has a scolloped finish making meat less likely to stick to the blade as you slice.  The handles are made from black Fiborox for a comfortable, slip free grip.  My mother gave this knife to me years ago and it is truly amazing how you can turn a 10lb pork roast into loin chops in just minutes,  making this  Cimeter a very special Victorinox butcher knifeVN40632-574x574 Victorinox Cimeter.

Made in Switzerland by the Swiss Army Knife Company Victorinox
