I was reading a thread at the BBQ Brethern on knives yesterday. As it turned out, I had just bought a slicing knife from Surfas so this got my attention. I got a 12 inch Forschner Granton Edge Fibrox Handle Slicing Knife mainly just to complete my collection.
"Forschner's (a division of Swiss Army Brands, Inc., marketer of Victorinox Swiss Army Knives) 12" Slicing Knife with granton edge, or "kullenschiff" edge, has hollowed out grooves on the sides of the blade. These grooves fill with the fat and juices of the product being sliced, which allows for thin, even cuts without tearing or shredding the meat. The handle is a patented, slip resistant, fibrox/nylon and NSF Certified."
My primary reason for wanting this knife was to slice brisket, turkey, baked chicken ribs or whatever else needs a clean cut.
