K-1834 Boning Knife 5” (13cm)



The meat tailors tool – 5″ boning knife

The K Sabatier 1834 Authentique 5″ boning knife is the finest example of the hammer forged culinary tool in the French style. To clarify, traditional French boning knives are made short, strong and very stiff. The blade serves all aspects of butchering carcass breakdown and final finishing of all cuts.

A Boning knife is always a straight edge; the blade is never curved. Knives with 6 to 8-inch curved blades are skinning knives (not boning knives). While useful in commercial sales, consumers do not think their homes need skinning knives; all hunters already have them.


Best used for

  • Piercing meat, trimming any material and removing meat from bones. Whether it’s separating ribs from a rack of lamb or removing bones from a chicken breast or rabbit.
  • This knife meets all the fine butchery requirements for the home, standing out as the master of boning knives.
  • Trim excess fat, facia and bone from cuts of meat or poultry.



Authentic French Design: The reverse sharp curve along the choil ending at the heel is unique to the French boning knife.

Strength and Maneuverability: This knife is your valuable companion for finishing and final preparation for your grill, oven or BBQ at home or on the line.

Award-Winning Craftsmanship: The K Sabatier 1834 Authentique collection won the IWA International Knife Award in the Gourmet Knives category in 2009 in Nuremberg, Germany.

Powerful Stainless Steel Blade: The blade is crafted from Z50C13 stainless steel with a hardness rating of 57/58 HRC as a result of cryogenic tempering (-70° -80° air cooled), which creates an increased edge retention while remaining flexible. Resulting in an extra fine double bevel profile which is finished by a crosswise manual polishing. 

Long-Lasting Edge: The 20-degree sharpening angle removes only half the amount of steel compared to the 15-degree angle common to Japanese knives, prolonging the boning knife’s lifespan.

Handmade French Leather Scabbard: Each blade comes with its own handmade French Leather sheath, protecting the boning knife from damage while adding an element of premium craftsmanship.

Knife Sharpening: We offer a complimentary knife sharpening service for all boning knives purchased from hacher&krain.
