Question Need a good knife-Suggestions?

What kind of knife do y'all use when you need to cut/trim ribs? The knives I have are God-Only-Knows what brand (and how old to be honest with ya). I need a good knife for when I need to trim ribs (cutting thru bone). Suggestions?

Thanks.

Most any knife will do you well for trimming ribs, just keep it sharp. There is no need to cut through bone when trimming ribs, you would need a bad azz knife to cut through a rib bone. You might want to check out You Tube and watch some video on trimming ribs.

Yep Vitorinox are good knives. I still have yet to add their deboning knife to the collection though.

For trimming, boning knives are great. For cutting, I like an 8" chef knife. If you want to knock yourself out, look for a local store that specializes in sharpening knives, as they often have older discount ones that are razor sharp.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Frog13...I saw one video where the cook trims a rack of spareribs,for a St. Louis cut, and it looked like he was going through bone. I may have to go back and watch it tho. Either way, I still need a good dependable knife as I practically have to saw...and saw...and saw with my POS knife I have now.

Ive been using a couple Dexter Russell knives that I really like. I use the butcher and the boning knife the most.

6" stiff Dexter Russel w/ white grip.
You cannot do better for $12 or so.
Fisherman buy these like crazy, they sharpen well,
I sharpen mine on an Arkansas stone.
I use it for everything, skinning (not gutting) deer,
cutting all meats, and all butchering.
I would only go to my 10" on a big shark, Bluefin tuna, or swordfish.
That 6" kicks other knives to the curb.
They should charge $50.

I use Dexter-Russel Sani-safes, have done so since I was paid to cook.

For home, I have a whole slew of knives I use for when I want to play around with nice blades.

I used to butcher professionally and loved the flexible w/white grip.Actually broke the tang off inside the handle rendering it useless.Any Victorinox are my favorite too.I'd be willing to bet if the OP just had his current knives sharpened they would work just fine.

I'll bet you. Cheap steel does not sharpen well. Soft steel does; I don't mind a soft steel knife. (it will rust on you if not attended, but sharpen well.)
But that 6" Dexter is awesome.
