    As far as a boning knife is concerned, are you considering a honesuki or a traditional Western désosseur?

    I would love to answer your question, but I don't have the foggiest!! Would you have a photo of the Western désosseur?

    he means this.

    well I was going to post a picture but, it says i can't post attachments.

    Ben means a standard European or American style boning knife.

    Thanks Son. Here's a désosseur. It's the traditional French butchering knife - in fact, often the only one used for butchering an entire cow, where others use a scimitar. Very thin, some flex, made of soft steel.

    Stiff or semi-flex?

    I've seen some who were explicitly flexible, but that seems a little hazardous to me.
    The relative flex should come from the thinnesss, not from the alloy, I guess.

    I like the boner but it could be a little longer and a tad more flexible.
    Devin's scimitar in the middle is a nice width and length. It's a little narrower which makes it more nimble. Although it could use a handle that offers more protection for your hand. The heel has bit me on more than one occasion.

    The down side to narrower is it shortens the knife's life span if used and sharpened often. Like the scimitar on the bottom, it's been sharpened a lot with a True Hone two wheel sharpener.
