Carving knife and forks

Carving knife is a knife with a blade resembling that of a chef's knife, but it's usually longer and more slender. It is useful for cutting large samples of poultry and other meats, often used in conjunction with a fork. It is important that any knives are kept sharp, as blunt knives require more force to use, actually increasing the likelihood of injury (cuts from a sharp knife heal more quickly than those from a blunt one). A knife sharpener can be used to keep knives sharp.
