Default Carving Knives

I'm in the market for a good carving knife for all the goodies I pull off the smoker. Any suggestions?

Me too. Victorinox 12 is a great knife. Ive found is a wall mount magnetic knife rack to be a great option for storage. Holds multiple knives of almost any length safely and securely.

I like Victorionox. A Brethren- Slamdunkpro in Sales and Ventures sells one that is excellent also

For my 14 inch slicing knife I have one similar to this:





It just a plastic sleeve that your knife slides into.

For all my other shorter knives I use these:






They work great and have different sizes.

Just don't get a serrated blade knife unless you want a throw-away. They are next to impossible to sharpen when they get dull. Not impossible, just that they require special equipment to sharpen correctly. YMMV
