Separating meat, poultry, or fish from the bone is no longer a difficult task with the Fibrox Pro 6" Boning Knife. In addition to deboning, this knife can also be used for removing skin from meat or slicing through joints and cartilage. Boning knives are easy to distinguish based on their unique blade shape. The straight-edge of this knife allows for smooth, clean cuts and the pointed tip allows you to easily pierce meat. The tapered knife edge is ground in two directions to hold its edge longer, and can easily be brought back to original sharpness.
Types of Boning Knives
Meant for tougher meats. Pork, beef or thicker meats require a stiff knife that won't bend easily because more heft is needed in order to debone properly.
Meant for thinner or more delicate cuts of meat. The flexible blade will make quick work of chicken or fish that are more intricate to bone and easily pierced.
Ideal for maneuvering around less intricate bones in thick cuts of meat.
Provides a better working angle when cutting close to and around the bone. Commonly used with fish or when accuracy is important.

In 1937 Victorinox began selling cutlery in America through a Connecticut distributor called R.H. Forschner & Co. A well-known manufacturer of butcher scales, Forschner soon became the exclusive U.S. distributor for Victorinox knives, and was the name by which Victorinox knives were known.
In 2011 Victorinox began marketing all its product lines, including kitchen knives, under the common umbrella name by which the company is now popularly known as Victorinox Swiss Army. Today, Victorinox Swiss Army still sells a handful of accessories, including the High Heat Turner line, under the Forschner name.
Care and Use
Be good to your knives and they'll be good to you. Following these simple guidelines will ensure that you get the longest life out of your knife!
Victorinox Swiss Army recommends washing all knives by hand. For best results, hand wash your knives with a soapy cloth and dry immediately.
While Fibrox Pro knives are dishwasher safe, we recommend hand washing as dishwashers are designed to spray water at a relatively high pressure, which can jostle the silverware and cause the knives to collide, dulling the edge.
Maintaining your Knife's Edge
For optimum performance, knives should be honed after every couple of uses. Proper and frequent use of a honing steel will keep your knives sharper and performing at their best, but remember that a honing steel will not sharpen a dull knife. Honing steels are maintenance tools and are used to help keep an already sharp blade from degrading. During use, a knife edge becomes rolled or turned from direct contact with cutting boards, bones or other hard objects. In this case, honing is necessary to straighten the edge of the knife. After significant use, the steel particles become damaged and the edge cannot be brought back by honing, so sharpening is necessary. If your knives are dull, pitted, or you see visible nicks on the cutting edge, you'll need to sharpen with a Swiss Sharp Handheld Sharpener (49002) or bring to a professional for re-sharpening.
History and Heritage
In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener opened a cutlery shop in Ibach, Switzerland. There, he and the cutler's; union he formed produced the finest steel cutlery, finished with the now-famous proprietary edge preferred globally by professional and home cooks. In 1891, Karl supplied the Swiss Army with its standard issue Soldier's Knife and in 1897 with the Officer's Knife. In 1921, after the death of his mother, Victoria, and with the advent of stainless steel, then known as "inoxydable" and used in the production of his cutlery, Karl changed the name of the company to Victorinox. It is from those humble beginnings that a worldwide icon was born.
Today, Victorinox is still owned and operated by the Elsener family, and both the company and family still resides in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland.
