Help Me Buy A Carving Knife Please

OnlyMe | Apr 19, 2009 01:58 AM

Hi all,
I'm no Chef and neither is my husband but for a long time now he has been looking for a 'good' carving knife. His birthday is coming up and as part of his gift I would like to get him knife.
The problem I have is that I live in Ireland a long way away from anywhere I can try out knives so I'm going to have to buy online.
I know he prefers a thin bladed knife and wants to use it for carving everyday roasts, chickens etc. as well as that Christmas turkey. I want something that will last but I know he won't want to nor have the time for taking the care of the knife that a lot of you do on here (sorry!).
Any help that you can provide is much appreciated!

On a side note - if I can get a carving knife at a fairly reasonable price I might even be tempted to buy a nife for peeling / chopping vegetables - any recommendations there?

Thanks again and I hope I haven't offended anyone with my very very basic questions / comments :-)
