With a flexible blade that bends around big bones and joints, this knife will fillet a trout but works best with poultry and meats. Henckels' International Classic is a moderately priced cutlery line made in countries other than the company's home of Germany. The steel is of lesser quality than that used in its premier lines. Also, the handles are narrower and shallower--which the small-handed might appreciate. While this boning knife is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack
