Meat is always cheaper when purchased bone-in, but many think that de-boning is too difficult. With the Wusthof Classic Ikon boning knife, you can easily trim the fat and remove the bones and tissues. The 5" blade is tapered to a point allowing you to work around the joints and easily separate the meat. You can quickly prep the meat and get a lot of meat off the bone, without having to worry about having to pay a butcher to do it for you. The handle is ergonomic, making it comfortable to hold and will ease in cutting of the meat. You can also impress your guests by your deboning skills while preparing a magnificent dinner.
