Serving knives are distinct from standard professional cutlery in that they are made to be visually appealing at a buffet or tabletop. They are great for carving roasts, wedding cakes, bread and other items. These knives are the perfect addition to a carving station. Serving knives are designed to look elegant, but that does not mean they are impractical. Many come with ergonomic indentations for your fingers, making it easier to carve in the kitchen or at the table or buffet. Most serving knives are serrated, since they are designed to serve breads and meats, but non-serrated carving knives are also available. For the most professional balance in your knife, go with a forged model. For the most elegant carving tools, look for a carving set with unique accents.
