    I am looking for a good trimming knife for brisket. tired of using kitchen knives. Looking for something under $50. Figured I'd get the best reviews here!

    I love my good old fashioned fillet knife. 25 bucks at wally world. I use it for almost all of my meat cutting. I just tune it up on my steel before I start.
     
  4. I use this one:



    I'm sure there are better ones out there, but this does the job for me. Love the reactions whipping this bad larry out of the drawer too, people think i'm wielding a katana.
     
  5. I like an old Rada R111 "Ham Slicer" my wife bought years ago. It great for trimming and slicing brisket. And as my grandfather would tell me in Italian it's "a buon mercato" at $11.60.

    You don't use a slice or carving knife for trimming up a brisket.
    Lol

  9. This thread got me thinking about the old Ginsu knife commercials.

    I use a large Breaking Knife that came with my knife set. Breaking knives are for breaking down big cuts of meat and being such a large knife makes it easy to span the size of a brisket when I trim it :)

    Here's a Victorinox brand 10" Breaking Knife for $36. They are a well known brand and having a breaking knife is nice!

    I use a plain stiff blade filet knife (robbed from Dad's tackle box) to trim. A slicing knife is for slicing..

    There is a company that my dad did business with, bought his smokehouses from, his ham netting, etc. from:

    ...of which I modeled my smokehouse from:

    If you're on facebook, get to know Dawn Wollesen, she is the rep for them and is fantastically helpful!
