Re: Butchering set
The Outdoor Edge sets are quite nice.
That beind said, I use a collection of knives from Old Hickory. Everything from thin bladed slicers to cleaver. You can reshape the oak handles to your individual hands if you desire. Good ol' 1095 steel made in Franklinville NY. Look on Amazon.com for some pretty good prices. You can be cutting meat for 50 or 60 bucks. JMO
