    I was gifted a couple of knives in the last couple 3 years by My son inlaws and daughters. One got me a filet knife and the other got me a boning knife. They turned out to be 2 of the best knives I have for butchering Bambi and skinning pork bellies when I do bacon.

    I'll take a pic of them tonight when I get home. In the meantime Check out this video from the bearded butchers on the boning knife I use on Bambi.

    Here is the 6" Boning Victorinox what a great knife. I highly recommend having at least one of these.

    Here are the two knives I was talking about.

    The filet knife is a Uncle Henry by Schrade. It holds the edge great and is very flexible which makes my go to for sinew removal while butchering Bambi.

    The Victornox boning knife is perfect for the de boning of Bambi's carcass amongst many other meat handling duties.

    I have a 50 year old professional meat cutters Victornox boning knife that is indeed a nice piece.
    It’s 6” blade is straight, however, and the handle is black plastic of some type contoured to fit the hand.

    And I’m a big fan of Schrade knives, Old Timer and Uncle Henry. A couple are US made before their collapse, most are overseas. But still excellent knives.
