As a South Africa knifemaker (where we love our meat and biltong), I believe that you have to have a biltong knife as part of your line-up. The only problem (for me at least) is that biltong knives are so boring they all pretty much look the same (lame)!
That is what inspired me to come up with something that I believe is quite different and unique.
Introducing the Baby ‘Hunting’ Biltong Knife:
What makes the Baby ‘Hunting’ Biltong Knife unique is that it looks like a small hunting knife, but if you look closely, you will see that the straight edge of the blade has been sharpened (and not the curved edge, as would have been done had this been a traditional knife).
As with all biltong knives it is used by holding the knife with the handle facing away from you, cutting towards your thumb.
This knife is a single-bevel knife (the back of the blade is flat), which makes for a smoother, more precise cut.
