Global Heavyweight Boning Knife

No Comments 25 Jul 6:31 am Author: Randy Category:Butchering/Filleting Knives

I have heard people say they have a nice filleting knife so why would I need a boning knife as well?  The blades are similar looking but the main difference is in the rigidity of the boning knife when you are cutting as close as possible to the bone and it is beef or pork you really don’t want that blade to be flexible.

Global-GF-31-The Global GF-31 has a blade made from a high-grade molybdenum and vanadium stainless steel, which means it has a very sharp edge and it will also retain that edge longer than most traditional kitchen knives.  Seamless stainless steel handle for precise balance and easy cleaning to remove any bacteria.  Take a look at this Global boning knife and check out all of the other necessary butchering knives while you are there.

Steak Knife Seaon Is Here

No Comments 1 Jun 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Steak Knives

About a week ago I wrote about breaking out the grill as well as steak knives to cut up what is coming off of that grill, but what kind of steak knife do you use?  There are basically 3 edges to a steak knife, a straight edge, microserrated edge and a serrated edge (a serrated edge will usually stay sharper longer).

A couple of major factors for your steak knife are, they should look good at a table setting, have a good feel about them when using and most important use them at the dinnertable not cutting up cardboard or desteming your flowers.  Probably the most popular is the serrated blade because it can easily do most cutting jobs  especially steaks and chops, you want that blade to glide through the meat without sliding it around you plate and onto the table.  The Victorinox 6 piece Steak KnifeVN46799 Victorinox 6 Piece Steak Knife Set Set feature a microserrated blade with black POM handles for a sure and comfortable grip, check these and other steak knives from J A Heckels,Wusthof and other makers of quality kitchen cutlery.
