- verified customerI have been smoking a lot of brisket lately, and a whole packer brisket requires A LOT of trimming. It contains copious amounts of fat that have to be trimmed. The goal is not to cut off all the fat, but instead to get it to approximately 1/4 inch in thickness, so it is not a matter of hacking away, the trimming has to be done precisely.
The blade on this knife is thin, but is certainly not razor thin. The blade is not flexible at all, so one can maintain precise control. I bought it for trimming brisket, but it could also be used successfully for cutting up whole chickens. If one were going to use if for filleting fish, I think because of its lack of flexibility, it may not work as well for that.
Fit and finish was very good. Sharpness 6/10. I like the knife a lot and it does well for the purpose I bought it.
