    With slaughter and butchering we use the Eka line knives, the slightly curved deboner and bullnose do the job well.
    This is good advice. When it comes to butchering the European knives are superior IMO.

    Just an FYI: There is a forgecraft butchers set with its original wall caddy on the bay for a buy it now of $70. Needs some cleaning but looks cool.

    My parents have a farm and we raise, slaughter and butcher our own beef and pork. We use nothing but Victorinox. They are perfect for this type of work.
