Carving Knives

Cooking meat to perfection is an art, whether that’s a medium-rare steak, a succulent roast chicken or juicy lamb chops. And after you’ve prepared the perfect hunk of meat, the last thing you want is to slip up when it comes to carving. You want to serve precisely cut slices of meat, not ragged, mashed, irregular wedges that spoil all your hard work.

To do so, you need to reach for a dedicated carving knife that puts you in perfect control of cutting meat. You can serve up finely cut, mouth-watering slices with confidence with one of our Lakeland carving knives. Simply browse our range and you’ll find a selection of high-quality carving knives made in a variety of lengths and styles, so you can choose the carving knife you’re most comfortable with.

What is a carving knife?

A carving knife – also called a meat carver or a carvery knife – is a kitchen knife with a long, thin blade with a pointed tip. Carving knives tend to be as long, or longer than chef’s knives, and with blades that are narrower. They also usually have sharp, straight blades, rather than serrated edges, although there are exceptions. You’ll also find that carving knives can come with a range of handles, from non-slip plastic and polished wood to stainless steel.

Whilst some people reach for an electric carving knife, it’s not an option we always recommend, as electric knives can saw into meat, creating rough and uneven cuts. You’ll get a better, cleaner result with a sharp, stainless steel blade instead.

What are carving knives used for?

Carving knives are made to cut through cooked meat easily, allowing you to carve off thin, uniform slices with ease and without otherwise damaging or deforming that beautiful cut of meat.

It’s the shape of a carving knife’s blade that allows it to glide through meat. The thin, slender dimensions of the knife reduce its surface area and limit the drag on the meat around it as it cuts. The even width of the blade also means you can cut slices that are uniform in thickness, all the way through. A sharp blade without serrations, ensures a carving knife slides through, rather than sawing into it. A long carvery knife allows you to tackle larger sections of meat.

This all makes carving knives ideal for slicing cooked meats, from full roast turkeys and pan fried rump steak to large, dry-cured hams. A carving knife can also be used to prepare and fillet fish, especially full or large portions of meaty fish, like salmon and tuna.
