description

Larger pieces of meat are cut and shaped with a butcher knife.

A butcher knife has a long (approx. 25-35 cm) and sturdy blade with a cut that is bent towards the end, ending in a sharp point. The wooden or plastic handle is shaped in such a way that the hand cannot slip when cutting. [MOT]
