Learn About Professional Butcher Knives
Professional butcher knives are made for butchers, hunters, home cooks and professional chefs. Made with a long and curved blade, they help break down large pieces of meat. We have a large selection from Dexter, F. Dick, Victorinox and Zwilling. Our options range from more budget-friendly options to high-quality butcher knives.
We have multiple blade sizes- from 6” to 14” and offer multiple handle options. We have riveted handles, plastic handles and wood handles. Our options include plastic handles with a non-slip grip.
Our selection includes various blade types. We have pointed tip blades, more rounded tips and thin blades. We have options of Granton edges. This edge has hollows that help prevent wet ingredients from sticking to the knife. This edge helps ease meat prep.
Keep knives sharp with a cutting board that prevents dulling. Our Cutting Board Buying Guide will help with your decision. Although, we do have a collection of knife sharpeners to keep the butcher knife blade like-new.
