An Old-World Classic
John Wilson’s “Peppercorn And Diamond Brand” Skinning Knives from 1750 was the foundation to the modern butcher knife we know today. By the 1840’s Mr. Wilson was exporting his knives to the Americas. At one time, the butcher knife was all-purpose knife for skinning, cooking food, and self-defense if needed. Now, every meat processing plant, hunter, and home cook need and use this essential component to the kitchen collection.
