Limited-Edition Boning Knife
By marrying classic design with modern, premium materials, Made In creates a boning knife that’s fit for fine kitchens. It just launched this week but is likely to sell out quickly. Read on to learn more.
In the few years since the brand Made In was founded in 2016, it’s quickly earned a reputation as a top maker of kitchen tools. Through smartly-designed carbon steel skillets to chefs knives, and more, the brand came from nowhere to find a spot in fine restaurants and kitchens around North America.
So when it got in touch to reveal a new boning knife, I took notice. This is one beautiful tool.
Made In Boning Knife
I haven’t had the chance to hold this one in my hand yet. But from appearance and specs alone, I’m guessing this limited-edition blade will sell out fast. And that’s taking into account its premium MSRP of $149.
If you’re not sure that you need a boning knife, here’s what to consider. Boning knives have flexible blades, usually shorter than — but similar to — fillet knives. The blade design lets you work around bones and joints for precise cuts. It has a sharp tip and thin profile for getting in tight spaces. It is not a critical knife in the kitchen unless you like to break down larger cuts of meat.
But for cooks who do a fair bit of butchery at home, it’s an indispensable kitchen tool. I use a boning knife regularly while butchering wild game or larger cuts of meat, like removing fat from brisket. I sometimes even use it on game birds.
So if you’re looking to fill that space in your knife block, here’s what to consider about the Made In model. It has a green micarta handle, which is one of my favorite handle materials. The color, well, it’s just a bonus, but it makes it really stand out from the crowd. It grabbed my attention in photos.
The 6.5-inch blade uses X50CrMoV15 stainless steel hardened to 58+ Rockwell hardness. While that is fairly soft in the knife world, it’s very appropriate for this kind of knife, which should be re-sharpened regularly. It’s a supple metal that will flex sideways under pressure, allowing you to follow contours in the meat.
The knife is 11.5 inches in total length and weighs 6 ounces.
For those interested in filling the boning knife niche in their kitchen, it looks like a promising tool. And with this limited-edition run, it likely won’t be around for long.
