Butchers

A butcher knife is a knife designed and used primarily for the butchering and/or dressing of animals.

Today the butcher knife is used throughout the world in the meat processing trade. The heftier blade works wellfor splitting, stripping and cutting meat. The French chef's knife is a derivation of the butcher knife,and is used as a general utility knife. Other similar meat-cutting knivesinclude the carving knife and the cleaver. The carving knife usually isdesigned for slicing thin cuts of meat and often has a blunt or rounded point,with a scalloped or granton blade to improve separation of slicedcuts of meat. The cleaver is similar to the butcher's knife, but has a lighterand thinner blade for precision cutting.
