A butcher knife is a utilitarian knife used mostly for preparing various meats and other related goods for sale. Butcher and cimeter knives are constructed with a curved edge to adhere to the ergonomics of slicing. When the elbow lifts up, the cutting edge stays in contact with the product. While butcher knives and cimeter knives are generally used in meat preparation, they are great for any number of odd jobs. These knives would be a great addition to your restaurant's kitchen supplies.
