We are pleased to stock a variety of specialty knives, namely boning knives, filleting knives, oyster knives, scallop knives, a ham slicer and a tomato knife.
Boning knives are specially designed for removing bones from meat and poultry and can be used to cut through tough cartilage. The curve in the blade provides excellent control and precision when cutting. They are not designed to cut through bone though, and a meat cleaver is recommended for this purpose. We offer boning knives in two blade lengths, either 4 inches long or 5 inches.
Filleting knives are very flexible boning knives that are used to fillet and remove bones from fish. The long flexible blade means that you can easily get under the skin of the fish to remove the backbone. We stock filletign knives with either 6 inch or 8 inch blades.
The oyster and scallop knives are short tough knives which are specially designed for shucking these types of shellfish.
The ham slicer has a 12 inch rounded carbon steel blade designed to make short work of a large joint of ham. It can also be used for slicing large fruit such as watermelon.
Our tomato knife has a 5 inch stainless steel serrated blade which slices cleanly through the tough skin of a tomato and leaves the soft flesh in perfect condition.
