The stiff-bladed 6" Boning Knife (5609-6) is an excellent choice to use for boning meat and is often chosen to use with pork or beef. The blade is 6-inch long and is narrow with a point at the end. The stiff blade makes it easier to control and lead to precision cutting. Made from tempered stainless steel, the blade is very sharp and retains its edge even after a lot of use. The handle of the knife is securely molded to the blade and has a design that makes it comfortable to use. The handle also contains a microbial protection treatment to help prevent the contamination by bacteria.
