Thread: Butchery Knives !

  1. #1

    Butchery Knives !

    In the market for the above.
    Should I get a set as advertised in various outlets or do I pick out individual knives ?
    Are there knives in a set let say that I don't need ?
    Suggestions most welcome !

    Thanks Guys,

    Personally I would say avoid any game specific and/or special offers. Not sure who sells them but ' United Outdoor Series' sets are absolute cat. Having quietly got rid of the last of those offending useless articles, I've just been given the same set as a replacement. Aaaaargh! They don't come with an edge and Jack the Ripper couldn't put one on them ! Seriously if you won't use it in the kitchen then it won't be any good in the larder. If you can keep them for your own use you won't need too many. A good boning knife and a proper butcher's saw will do a lot of work.

    get the 6" or 7" victorinox boning knife with the fibrox handle.... don't need that much more to be good knifes and easy to clean dishwasher safe etc

    use my few for skinning and larder work

    The 'Taylor's Eye Witness Professional' knives are highly rated by the Consumers Association ('Best Buys') and at approx. 18-20 for a boning knife, a third of the price of all the others.
    A few wisdom's:
    • Do not be seduced by the marketing-men
    • If you can get closer, get closer.
    • If you can get more stable, get more stable.
