The proper way to carve meats and poultry is with a carving knife set. These generally are packaged as a set of two that consists of a longer, thin knife capable of cutting thin slices of meat, and a fork. The set may also include accessories such as a storage sheath or box, in addition to a honing rod to keep an edge on the knife. When in the market for a carving knife set, consider ones with a knife that maintains a sharp edge over time. The knife should feel comfortable in your hand, with a decent balance and heft. A durable set should last you for years, and may be backed by a lifetime warranty to assure it.
