I have become addicted to the Bearded Butchers youtube channel, and this knife is the one they use in most of their videos. Victorinox 6 inch semi-stiff boning knife with rosewood handle. I'm tired of trying to trim/debone meat with junky knives and figure if they use this knife in a commercial setting, it should more than suit my needs.

Looks like a nice knife! I'll have to keep an eye out for one. I'll just tell my wife... it's ok honey, it's only semi stiff!

Yeah boning knives are useful for a lot of things. I have a 6" boning/paring gladiator from dalstrong that I use A LOT and I have an 8" vegi chefs knife too. I been thinking about getting a 6 inch chef's lately to be honest 8's a bit long. as a btw I suggest a rough fine pull thru and a honing rod no need to go all stone unless you ocd.

Victorinox makes a nice blade, I have had the Swiss Army model in my pocket for many many years!

I also really like their modern chef knifes with walnut handles......just classy and modern!

I figure this should be all I need for quite awhile.

I bought the Franklin to make me feel like I know what I'm doing.
Actually more of a souvenir than a kitchen tool but it works great, sharpens and holds it's edge nicely and comfortable handle.

Worth a look is the $4 with coupon Harbor Freight adjustable sharpener. From my Knives to the lawnmower blades, it's fantastic:

I finally got a decent knife set after using junk knives forever. Almost sent myself to the ER with them the first time I used them. Cut so much easier than what I had been fighting with.

Yea I call BS on whoever said “dull knives are more dangerous or likely to cut you”. I learned differently on my first couple razor sharp knives complete with stitches lol. I learned to respect them quickly.

Been my experience that any of them will cut ya, sharp ones usually make a deeper cut is the only difference I've found.

jcam222 jcam222 Was surprised how easily the new knives cut. Was like cutting warm butter vs having to saw away at it. Almost did send myself to the ER. LOL.
