    I can't vouche for these knives but.. $38 for a 10 inch carbon bullnose will be tough to beat.

    I've used a lot of their "Herter" style blades and they were all OK for the low cost but these current Murphy prices seem a little bit excessive for plain wood handled carbon steel knives. WSJ had a short article on a three Murphy knife set for $249 yesterday.

    Your best bet is to get a few Victorinox knives (butcher, breaker, couple boning knives). Once you figure out what patterns and lengths you use most and like (which will most likely be two knives at the end of the day), have a couple customs made. The Victorinox knives are actually really well thought out for the butcher (probably the best production knives on the market).

    There has been considerable interest in vintage Forgecraft knives on this site recently. Carbon, good steel, wood handled, many have been re-handled and look sweet. An 8 inch bullnose would certainly earn its keep in a butchers kit. To search forum for examples use google and search syntax: site:kitchenknifeforums.com search for this

    Consider safety, butchering is tricky you have to navigate the knife around joints and bones its sometimes bloody and fatty and slippery you do really need a knife with a good safe non slip handle, even more so if you progress to actual slaughter.

    Also you will cut into bones (unless you are a wizard), a to acute angle and hard steel and it will chip.

    With slaughter and butchering we use the Eka line knives, the slightly curved deboner and bullnose do the job well.

    I picked up a couple of Forgecraft boning / bullnose knives for butchering (mainly deer). I am very happy with the ease of use and how easy they were to sharpen. I only took them up to 1000 grit this year and that worked out very well. Most important to me was the edge retention was much better than anything I have used previously. My dad's favorite is a stainless dexter boning/filet knife. It is a little thicker than a regular filet knife with the big white plastic handle - cheap but gets the job done. I know a couple of professional butchers who use them too.
