    I’ve always used my (fish) filleting knife for most everything except chopping veggies b/c its edge remains razor-sharp through years of happy use. Given my affection for the type of blade, I decided to purchase the Vic when it received such a good review in Cook’s. Even though it’s called “flex” the knife is stiff enough to bone any cut of meat and the edge is amazing sharp, certainly on par with my old fave. Assuming it continues to holds its edge, this item is a tremendous bargain. I’ve returned my fish knife to its intended, limited use.

    This knife is very comfortable to use. Thus far I haven’t actually used it for boning, but have cut very thin, neat slices of meat. It holds an edge very well & is easy to hone. I like the feel of the handle.

    Do yourself a favor, buy one of these knives and start breaking down your own chickens. If you took apart just 2 whole chickens yourself as opposed to buying pieces at the store, this knife will pay for itself. If you enjoy cooking, it’s a rewarding experience and you can use the carcass for homemade stock.

    I’m not trained or a professional cook – I bought this knife after reading the America’s Test Kitchen review and began buying whole chickens. After watching a few youtube videos (Andrew Zimmern’s is my favorite), I grabbed my new knife and successfully took a chicken apart. After my second try, the breasts I removed look even better than the premium quality packaged breast meat from the supermarket.

    The handle is large and textured so even when wet, the knife is easy to hold. The slight flex lets you work the knife up against bones and get the most meat off. The blade arrived sharp and is easily sharpened. It’s the perfect tool for breaking down chickens, de-boning, fileting, and also removing silverskin from tenderloins and flank steak.

    Fantastic product, one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. Don’t buy an expensive forged boning knife!

    America’s Test Kitchen recommended this boning knife and they were right. This knife is sharp straight out of the package. I used it the first time to cut the silver skin from some beef and it was so easy using this knife. The sharp point and long thin blade enabled me to get right under the silver skin and I did not cut into the meat itself. I was able to cut neatly and precisely where I wanted to due to the comfortable handle and sharp blade. Why pay a fortune for a boning knife when this one gets the job done quick and neat. Good job America’s Test Kitchen and thanks R H Forschner for making another affordable but quality product.

    I am a hunter and I process the game I take myself. This boning knife was just what I needed to speed the process along. I recently processed a 100 lb. hog. The knife was flexible and narrow which allowed me to get the most from the bone. The handle was easy to grip. The blade held a good edge through the entire hog, I did not need to stop and steel the blade.

    I used it the following week to process a deer with the same good experience.

    At this great price how can you go wrong.

    Had I known it was possible to fall in love with a set of knives, I would have given up my eharmony membership long ago. (Just kidding) I have a set of Calphalon Contemporary knives and thought they were great. After reading an online review at a reputable cooking site however, I bought this set for a friend. (Price to quality ratio was well-reviewed) OMG, everything you cut is like butta (except for butter itself which is like watta) Whether you buy the set or just the pieces you need, I cannot recommend these knives enough.

    Oh, and though I love them to much to do so, I believe they are dishwasher safe.

    I bought this knife on the recommendation of Cooks Illustrated. I’m not disappointed in it at all. The handle is well shaped and easy to grip with slippery hands. The blade good and sharpens well. Nothing bad to say about it and I’m not sure what else I could look for in a boning knife.

    Boning is not something I do often so it makes no sense to buy a boning knife…well not for a high price. I find this a great addition to my premium knives and worth the investment for this special task…also works great for filleting.

    Opened the knife from the package, and it was perfectly sharp. It fits in the hand well, and cuts well. America’s Test Kitchen suggested the knives for price and quality, and to me they were right on every aspect.

    This knife has performed well beyond its price. I bought it primarily for butchering game. This fall I used the knife to butcher 2 deer and a turkey… it held its edge well enough and it was easy to put a new edge on it.
