Tool: Carving Knife


A large, long knife that is used to slice thin cuts of meat, such as poultry, roasts, and hams.

It can either have a pointed or rounded tip and a smooth non-serrated blade. Pointed-tipped carving knives are usually used for cutting around the bone while the rounded is for carving large, boneless pieces of meat such as ham or roast beef.

The smooth non-serrated type of blade keeps the meat from sticking to the blade as you cut it.


Other names: slicer
