    Friedrich Wilhelm Knives?

    He who narrates the rack of lamb video on the free site (Meathead?) raves about his Friedrich Wilhelm boning knife. Perhaps I misunderstood, but I can't find those kitchen knives anywhere. Any ideas? Thanks

    I think they’re Gunter Wilhelm knives.

      Right you are! Reviewing the video again, I now see the name on the blade which I ignored and only heard Meathead refer to the love he has for his "Friedrich Wilhelm knife." Could be my technique, but my Henckles 5-Stars don't seem to take or hold a particularly sharp edge, so I'm on the hunt. Thanks for your reply!

    I picked up a consumer grade Henkel at Bed Bath and Beyond for $30 that is perfectly fine for as often as I use it. Keep it sharp and honed and it is a good knife.

    edit: Oops, I see you have had a bad experience with the Henkels. Never mind!

      No worries. Might be my technique. I notice I misspelled "Henckels!"

        In my experience most western knives trade sharpness for durability.

        I bought a Kanehide TK Forgecraft butcher knife, and it doesn't seem to loose its edge. I am careful not to hit bones with it though.

        They make a honesuki (Japanese style boning knife) that is affordable.

          I have Some Henkel 4 star since 1995 or so and it’s razor sharp. I keep it at 15° maybe you need a new edge rather than honing.

          I also use Mac Honesuki, wustoff Ikon boning and old fat rubber handled thing I love, Mercer perhaps, IDK. All sharp as a razor.

            A good point! I use a Spyderco Sharpmaker in addition to honing, but I've never had my knives professionally sharpened. I'll spend some time on the Sharpmaker today and start looking for a good sharpening service as well.

            My two faves are both made by F. Dick. The only difference is that one is flexible. I’ve had them both for many years...and they just keep trudging along.
