    My knives don't even match each other. I have a mixture of some old Chicago Cutlery knives and some newer Victorinox and Hammer Stahl stuff. Heck, my wife probably won't want them in sight, come to think of it lol

    You bet. I mean the Global one works great and it looks great, but you will be able to find much cheaper options. magnet is a magnet, it just depends on how nice you want it to look or if you want it to match your knives. klflowers

    Wow, that is expensive. But I saw lots of cheaper ones too, so thanks for the link.

    Global. But it is too expensive. I got it like 9 years ago as a late night purchase. https://www.amazon.com/Global-Cutler...4803448&sr=8-2

    I have the Shogun version and I really like it a lot, but that one is more suited to veggies or nothing more intense than chicken bones. I thought about getting this one as well, but I honestly would never use it.

    Don’t really use a meat cleaver much. Prefer the control of poultry shears for tougher parts but sharp boning knife gets job done most of the time. I really like the OXO shears.

    Picked up a Chinese chef knife during past few months and love using it too. The blade is square (vs curved) so need to adjust technique a bit but it’s so fun to use for any vegetable prep. It works well too for boneless meat. The blade is notably thinner so not well suited for some of tougher tasks that you might use a cleaver. I’d highly recommend for anyone looking to try something new out.

    Which is why I don't have one. Matching handles isn't worth $160.

    I found this SOB in an old house on my uncles farm. No idea how old it is. However, you better believe this baby has seen A LOT of farm chicken necks. It is an absolute beast.....and I have two of them!

    I would just buy this one. It is cheap and you are just using it to do rough work.

    I have an expensive Global Meat Clever that I use a few times a year. It looks cool on my magnetic knife strip, but to have a $160 clever is ridiculous, in retrospect.

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
