Thread: Ham knife I believe...Sab experts?

  1. #11
    I believe that this has been called a ham slicer by many manufacturers but this is technically a beef/meat slicer (that is also used for ham) whereas a true ham slicer has a pointed tip that looks like it's broken but isn't. The rounded tip was introduced for serving lines where the need for a pointless knife shaped object was necessary for safer plating.

    Ooo... hmmm. I'm going to start looking at the salmon slicer completely differently now.

    Thanks for the explination!

    LOLOL Clearly, yes.

    No joke though, that thing is sharp. I was an idiot and let my guard down holding it, then cut myself with it. I felt silly for the rest of the day.

    True! The Misono kids' knife is actually a very cool, very useable little knife! I know someone in the industry who has a thing for them. Haha. The worst part is...I completely get it! They're very cool!

    It's a great knife. I love using it for buffet service. It's also excellent for cutting cheese cake. I've seen a few places that serve smoked salmon on a buffet. Again, the rounded tip you don't have to worry about accidentally stabbing someone.
