A sharp knife is a safe knife, so the saying goes. As some of you may know I collect Buck knives and custom kitchen knives. I recently purchased a Benchmade Meatcrafter knife. This knife will be used in the kitchen as a type of filet knife. It is described as a hybrid hunting knife and comes with a plastic sheath. My hunting is done at Safeway and this knife will never leave the kitchen . The blade steel is CPM-154 and has a patented "Select Edge" technology. What is "Select Edge"? A good question and the information I can find it is sharpened at a 14 degree angle. Most kitchen knives are sharpened to a 17-20 degree angle.
This is not an endorsement for this knife. Time will tell how it will hold up in the kitchen. It has a pretty steep price tag of 150 dollars. Why did I even buy it? My friend owns a knife shop in Oakland California and highly recommends Benchmade knives. (Disclaimer; he is a Benchmade Dealer). My present filet knife has been sharpened so much it was time to replace. Benchmade offers a free lifetime sharpening service if you want to pay the postage. I do like knives.
