Info on knives

Postby ChileFarmer » Thu Nov 17, 2016 8:50 pm

Knives or what ever is best. I have been around butchering animals most all my life. I still have trouble removing the silver skin with any ease. For me it is always slow. Maybe I am just to picky and want it all off. I have a huge collection of knives. None work very well at this task. Whats your choice. CF :D

I've had the best luck with a Paring Knife, and a paper towel for a good grip...

Ditto on the paring knife. A very very sharp paring knife.

CF, I keep a pair of catfish skinners in my Kitchen Tool drawer and they work great for the occasional odd job such as that thin membrane. :tup:
These might even be a Collectors Item by now :laughing7: :lol:

I do the same OUP. In fact, mine get more use as rib skinners than catfish skinners by a long shot!!

Methinks OUP is on to something :laughing7: I actually haven't seen a set of those since I was 9 or 10. Anywho, I use a boning or filet knife for silver skin myself. I wouldn't mind a shot at the skinning pliers though. I would probably freeze the piece intended to be "skinned" first, if possible (to keep from ripping the muscle to shreds).

I suppose I hadn't thought of that. Momentary lapse in judgement. lol! I have tried peeling it away, just like the rib membrane, only to have chunks torn from the underlying meat :( Lift and cut.. Check!

Imho a sharp filet knife is the way to go. I do use a paper towel for the slippery stuff too. But a sharp filet or boning knife is my go to.

The trick is to pull and use the tip of the knife as you're going along.

Capt. Looks like a good knife, Would you know the model number ? And is the blade flexible? Might just be what I am looking for. Thanks CF :D

it's about as flexible as most 6" boning knives, but not as flexible as my 6" fillet knife
the shape and the angle of the handle to the blade is incredible!!
an incredible prep knife to the cutting board Image

note: it says they are temporarily out of the 6" model
but do have some of the 5" models in stock
