Wusthof Kitchen Gourmet Boning KnifeThis flexible boning knife with six-inch-long blade follows contours well and slips into tight places, allowing clean cuts with very little waste. Chefs prefer stiffer blades for the tougher meats like beef, but the Wusthof Gourmet performs well for fish and poultry, and Wusthof recommends it for ham.

I've enjoyed some salt-cured hams that this knife would have found a bit stiff, but for meat you don't need to soak in water for twelve hours before cooking, the Wusthof Gourmet Boning Knife ought to work well. The full tang blade is laser cut from a solid blank of high carbon Solingen stainless steel and compound beveled for uniform flexibility along the entire length of the cutting edge. Instead of a forged bolster, a practical substitute is formed from the front portion of the double-slab handle. The grip of durable dark polymer, bonded securely to the tang with stainless steel rivets, weathers heat and humidity without warping and offers a comfortable hold even when wet and slippery. It's a little more than a fillet knife and able to make some slicing cuts without the wandering problems of a more narrow blade.

Sharpening is simple since the edge is tempered for resetting with an ordinary kitchen steel. This edge is tough, built for working around bone, and you won't need to be concerned with edge chipping if you run into something hard. Though the boning knife is built solidly, it's still not the blade to choose if you're levering apart large joints of meat. The boning knife shears meat from the bone and makes delicate cuts that heavier butcher knives can't handle.

With the same build as a stamped steel knife, the Wusthof boning knife actually results from an improved process. Cut from a steel blank with a laser beam, the Wusthof method avoids the distortions and stresses that weaken ordinary stamped steel.
