Carving Knife Sets

Carving knives and carving flatware for cutting and filleting meat and fish

Disjointing meat and fish can be a real challenge. When you want to put duck, turkey or carp on the table on special occasions, you can professionally remove the meat or fish from the bones with the right carving knife. Now we’ll be happy to show you our range of high-quality carving sets.

How is a carving set used?

A carving set is an indispensable part of every well-equipped kitchen. If you serve a roast or a whole fish on a festive occasion, then it must professionally carved beforehand. Ideally this happens right on the table in front of guests. You can cut even, manageable slices with a carving knife that you divide up onto the dinner plates. The carving fork fulfills three important jobs:

To make the pieces of meat smaller

With the carving fork you can hold large pieces of meat so that you can slice them precisely with a carving knife. This will give you clean slices.

Lifting the roast

When preparing a festive meal one challenge is getting the meat out of the oven dish or Dutch oven. The oven dish is still hot and should not be touched. In addition, stuffed ducks and geese weigh a lot, so it’s hardly possible to pick them up with an ordinary fork. With a carving fork your can lift the meat or a whole fish out of the dish without problems.

Turning meat and fish

Going forward it will be easy to turn the roast or fish during filleting using a carving fork. Your hands will remain clean and you can work right on the table in front of your guests.

Good to know: In our store you can also buy a matching carving fork for your carving knife.

Carving: cutting up fish and meat professionally

To cut up a large piece of meat of fish into portions you need a carving fork. A carving fork has very large, long prongs, to hold the meat securely. This is to ensure it doesn’t slip when you are cutting. With the right carving knife you should always cut across the grain to get appetizing, uniformly cut slices.

You should keep this in mind when buying carving knives and carving sets

So that the lovingly prepared dish can be served in a visually appealing way, you need the right carving cutlery for slicing and filleting. We’ll be happy to help you choose and tell you what is important when buying carving forks and carving knives.

1. The fork shape

With an ordinary fork you cannot pick up large pieces of meat in order to carve them. Carving forks have specially shaped prongs for this that can pass through the meat or fish completely and hold it in place. Some carving forks have prongs that slightly curve outwards, this ensures a better hold.

2. Ergonomic handle

Carving a roast can take some considerable strength. An ergonomic handle on the carving knife makes this job easier.

3. Material

The carving cutlery should be high quality so that it does not bend or break with use. When buying look out for corrosion-resistant, firm materials. For example, stainless steel forks are suitable for carving.

Carving knife sets typically come with a slender, sharp knife and a supportive fork, ensuring accuracy in cutting roasts and poultry. Their design focuses on reducing meat tearing, providing neat slices ideal for festive gatherings and family meals, thus becoming an indispensable tool for chefs at every skill level.

A carving knife set typically includes a large carving knife for slicing meats and a carving fork to hold the meat steady.

Look for high-quality materials, comfortable handle design, and consider the types of meats you'll be carving.

Stainless steel is common for durability and ease of maintenance, while high-carbon steel is known for sharper edges but requires more care.

Regular sharpening, proper cleaning after each use, and storing in a knife block or sheath to protect the blades.

All of our sets are beginner friendly and offer a balance of quality and affordability, with ergonomic handles for ease of use.
