Boning Knife- essential or not?

hobbess | Jul 1, 201101:23 AM     104

When I look at those lists about what's essential in a kitchen, they'll always stress the importance of the chef knife and paring knife. And, more often than not, that same list will also include the boning knife.

Since I don't have a boning knife, I'm curious what I'm mising by not having one and whether or not I should get one.

What can the boning knife do that a chef's knife or paring cannot do, or at least, do it better than those other options?
