    Looking for a particular knife blade style



    The brand is "Kwikut", the knife I have was my grandmothers and it's about to be past it's useful time, the handle has a crack in it and thats where bacteria hide, anyway the style is like this one with the squared edges, I was about to never even try it looked like it would just hack and tear but it cuts, quickly and now.

    Wondering if anyone's heard of the brand or the style, all I can find is "vintage" knives on Ebay, I'd like a new one or maybe 5 haha

    I remember them from many years ago, they used to hawk them by demonstrators in stores....

    My rule of thumb is is a knife is cheap thats what you get a cheap knife.

    I cook a lot, and use many knives. I buy forged knives. Exclusively. The only serrated knives I have are my bread knives and an extra long carving knife.
    Recently, my daughter tried to give me an appropriate gift. She order me two Forged In Fire Chef Knives. I used my Professional Knife Sharpener and put a great edge on them. They cut pretty darn good. Can't match my Cutco, or my Hopeknives Damascus Steel, but they don't cost 200 bucks, either.
    My sharpener keeps my knives in good order.

    your handle should be a " D " style. easier to pull out after you burry it to the hilt in the chest.

    Search for "saw and raker" knife or "knife for frozen foods. The tip on your knife is more for opening a bag, or piercing of a tough skin like on a tomato. On a saw and raker type knife, it would lead me to believe the knife is purpose built for butchering. The pointed tip will pierce and can be used to slice the skin, and yep, that baby will cut through bone too. Usually they have thick blades and you can use a lot of pressure on them more safely than a skinny blade.

    We have one, but its blade is not so thick, better suited as a tomato or bread knife. Too long to be just for tomatoes, but the piercing tip seems out of place for bread alone. It is serrated, but does not have the open saw structure like yours. Make sure to stick to "saw and raker", even if you can't get the pointed jabbing tip.

    Oh, the handle feature of your knife is meant to keep your slick hand from sliding down the blade as you work it back and forth. It's important! Don't buy one without it!

    Any one using ceramic knives?

    I like them but they can't be used near bone and chip if dropped.

    However they cut very well and can be had with serrations, which I have not tried.

    I don't care what it is, you can't throw out or retire grandma's knife for a broken handle. Any decent craftsman or knifesmith can easily remove a handle and replicate it in original materials (except for bakelite...) in a few hours and you can use it for life.

    If the blade is there, the knife is still there.

    or enough hilt to reliably twist and pull.
