How to choose carving knives
• A sharp edge is just one factor to consider when you’re comparing carving knives. More importantly, the blade should have a straight edge. Serrated edges are more likely to catch on the meat and produce raggedy edges instead of a clean, smooth line.
• Stainless steel is a popular material for carving blades, particularly high-carbon steel. Ceramic is another effective option.
• In addition to choosing a sharp, straight blade, you should look for a strong and durable carving knife. High quality stainless steel is a durable material, and ideally you should look for a knife made from surgical grade quality for best results.
