A cake slicing knife is used to produce clean slices of cake, but can also be used to slice bread, pastries and other baked goods. A slicing knife can also be used to cut thinner slices of roast, fruits and vegetables.
Carving knives are for carving dense meat. We have options of slicing knives and carving knives with a Granton edge, rounded tip or a pointed tip to give you options and find what you need. Rounded tips are safer while a pointed tip helps penetrate tough exteriors. A Granton edge has hollows that help prevent wet ingredients from sticking to the knife.

Professional Carving & Slicing Knives FAQ
What is a slicing knife used for?
Slicing knives are used for making clean slices of raw and cooked meats or fruits and vegetables. With the long thin blade, you can make beautifully smooth slices with one stroke.
How do you use a slicer knife?
To properly use a slicing knife, place food securely on a cutting board at least twice the size of the item you are slicing. Secure the food item either with your fingertips, tongs or carving fork. Properly grip the knife and move the blade horizontally with a slight downward force (the amount of force depends on what you are slicing).
What is the difference between slicing and carving knives?
A slicing and carving knife is the same type of knife; featuring a long thin blade with either a pointed or rounded tip. The edge can feature hollows that keep the slices of food from sticking to the blade.
What is the difference between a slicing knife and a utility knife?
A utility knife is in between a paring knife and a chef knife for size. A slicing knife blade is longer and thinner than a chef knife and therefore also longer than a utility knife.
