The 8" Breaking Knife is part of Kershaw's Pro-Grade Specialty Fish & Game series. Pros know that having the right tool for the job makes every job easier. That's the idea behind Kershaw Pro-Grade series; you'll always have just the right knife for every job.
The 1288BK features an 8" blade, so it's ideal for many saltwater fish, most large to medium-sized freshwater fish, and a variety of game. It excels at helping you break down fish and game into more kitchen-ready cuts. The curved blade is long enough to cut all the way through and gives you the full range of motion you need in order to make a clean cut. This shorter breaking knife is also a champ at trimming and slicing barbeque meats. And we even know of some butchers who prefer to use it for almost all of their trimming and slicing tasks.
All Pro-Grade blades are 420J2 stainless steel for excellent corrosion resistance-always important for use in a wet environment. The steel is also quite tough and easy to re-sharpen. What's more, it offers just the right amount of "flex" to make filleting and breakdown easier. The Pro-Grade handle is a proven design that enables your hand to lock easily into place for comfort and control, even when you're doing a lot of processing.
