Boning Knife

A boning knife is a specialized kitchen tool with a sharp tip and a slim blade. It’s primarily used in food preparation for deboning tasks, such as removing the bones from poultry, meat, and fish. The length of a boning knife generally ranges from 12 cm to 17 cm (5 to 6 ½ in), although some brands are known to extend up to 9 ½ inches.

The blade of a boning knife is quite narrow, which is not as thick as some other popular kitchen or butcher knives. This design allows for precision boning, especially for deep cuts and holes. There are different types of boning knives, some are stiff which are good for boning beef and pork, while others are very flexible and are preferred for poultry and fish.
