Victorinox 8" Breaking Knife w/ Black Fibrox Handle
This 8" Victorinox Breaking knife is one of the preferred large butcher/breaking knives of The Bearded Butchers. It is primarily used for carcass breakdown, as just the right size to handle while separating large primal sections for further breakdown.
The 10" Victorinox Breaking Knife is the largest butcher/breaking knife used by The Bearded Butchers. This knife is preferred for cutting larger steaks and roasts, giving smooth, clean slices through large sections, resulting in great looking cuts of meat.
Combined with the 6" Rosewood Handle Victorinox Boning Knife, these knives are the workhorses you need to tackle carcass breakdown and butchering of most species, up to and including large beef and bison.
- Smooth blade with curved razor sharp 8" edge
- Ships in safe clamshell packaging
- Slip Resistant Fibrox Nylon TPE Handle
- Made in Switzerland
- NSF Certified
Better feel than some of my other knives.
My son and his in-laws bought a lamb and needed to process it but the cost was a bit high, and it was the middle of hunting season in Colorado so butcher availability was quite tight. I had just bought the knives and had yet to use them (still in the packaging) when my son asked if I had any knives. Naturally as a proud new owner of a set of your knives I answered yes. They had a blast cutting up the lamb and getting it freezer ready. They really liked the knives; they like them so much I had to buy another set.
We have not tried them
We have a small homestead and raise chickens and turkeys. This past weekend we processed 5 turkeys and this knife made the job so much easier. We will be looking at getting more Victorinox knives in other sizes in the future.
