What is the best butcher knife?

Strength and accuracy are hallmarks of butcher knives and that's what makes Cutco's the best. The wide belly and clip point help you get professional results when butchering larger cuts of meat, and segmenting larger fruits and vegetables, like melon, squash and pineapple.

What to look for in a butcher knife?

  • Ergonomic handle
    Universal fit for large or small, left or right hands. Thumb and forefinger lock into place for safety and control. Fatigue-resistant design.
  • Ultra sharp straight edge
    The 30-degree inclusive angle and razor-sharp edge produces smooth slicing and allows you to chop straight through whatever you're cutting rather than using a sawing motion. Cutco straight-edge knives can be maintained and sharpened at home.
  • Full tang
    Provides strength and balance with the blade extending the full length of the handle. The triple rivet construction securely attaches the handle to the blade and the nickel silver rivets will resist pitting and tarnishing. Rivets are also flush with the handle for comfort and durability.
