I've been smoking meat over 50 years, my son's are well into being grill masters. I've always wanted the all around bar b que knife. One that chops, slices, cuts ribs with ease and can quarter a chicken. Also I've never bought a carving fork that was worth a flip. I believe the 14" OAL 9 1/2 blade will do all of the above. The fork is heat treated and tempered like the blade, it will hold up anything a person has enough strength to pick up.
I'm going to add this to my line of knives. This is only the first coat on the kingwood handle. I like to put on a coat and re-sand the next day. It swells the gain and I can identify any scratches on it.
