Brisket Knife

Postby @dallassooner » Tue Feb 07, 2017 12:27 pm

What are most restaurants using to slice their brisket. Looks like the knife you get for slicing bread when you buy a block and knives. I don't think that's what it is. Just wondering.

Thanks

Can't speak for restaurants, but this is what I use (more or less):

+1. The Swiss Victorinox is hard to beat for the money (around $30-$40). You can shave with it too, it's the one knife in the kitchen I won't let anyone else use.

I'm another fan of Victorinox. Dexter and Mundial are also fantastic.

I bought one of the Granton style 14" knives better than 15 years ago. People that I've let borrow are amazed at how it slices brisket up. I use a Worksharp sharpener on it about once a month to strop it with a superfine belt.

Somehow, the bade went UNDER the entire broil and skimmed across the top of the board and right into my knuckle.....

It's funny talking about knives , I was trimming some fillet steaks and picked up a long thin knife I hardly use but I thought at the time , this knife is longer than I usually use, then half way through, I misjudged the blade and tip went into my palm. Funny how i actually thought how this might end and went on cutting. Duh. All healed now though. :deadhorse: :deadhorse:

I have two for my briskets they both serve a purpose.
This one has been taking a beating for over five years.

I use this one for competition mostly. It will slice super thin.

Thoughts on using an electric knife other than the obvious noise and doesn't seem as cool as a long clean stroke from the blades mentioned/shown above? Does it tear or shred too much? I have used it on turkey, prime rib, and whole tenderloin and it seemed to cut cleanly and was super easy.
