When you invest in something like a JA Henckels knife set you are in it for the long haul – the JA Henckels brand has been around since 1895 so they have seen a lot of cutlery fads come and go yet they still manufacture forged, stamped and Never Need Sharpening cutlery that stands the test of time. Whether you seek a boning, paring or butcher’s knife, JA Henckels is a place to look.

Each knife is specifically designed to meet or exceed expectations for the task at hand. A boning knife is a type of kitchen knife with a sharp point and narrow blade. It is used in food preparation for removing the bones of poultry, meat and fish. Most boning knife blades are 5 to 6 ½ inches in length (although many brands extend up to 9 ½ inches) and feature a very narrow blade. Boning knives are not as “thick” as some of other popular kitchen/butcher knives, as this makes precision boning, especially in deep cuts and holes, much less difficult. A stiff boning knife is good for boning beef and pork, but a very flexible boning knife is preferred for poultry and fish. JA Henckels offers a wide range of boning knives at various price points.

When shopping for any knife design and construction are critical factors to consider; the knife must be smooth with no rough spots, sunken rivets or other irregularities which might harbor germs and breed bacteria. Knives should be wiped clean with a damp cloth and never placed in a dishwasher or submerged in water for any length of time.
