When preparing a rack of lamb for roasting it's customary to remove the belly and the rib meat from the cut. A frenched rack of lamb is an elegant, easy to execute preparation that all seasoned cooks should be able to preform. Begin by removing the rib flap, then flip it over and start making careful cuts down the back of each rib bone. Remember you're cutting through the sinew not all the way into the bone. Now start working the sinew away from the rib bones. Using a clean kitchen rag helps do the step easily, but make sure you treat the rag as a raw meet contaminated product. Get each rib to at least half an inch down before moving onto pulling the rest down. Now work the sinew away from the rest of each bone. Once the sinew is loosened from each rib lay the rack with the inside facing down so you can remove the rib flap. Carefully slice through to remove the flap taking care not to cut the loin muscle. At this point run your edge along the rib bones to carefully clean up any remaining muscle and fat. When roasting the rack whole place it in the roasting pan with the outside of the rack facing up. The bones insulate the loin muscle from direct contact with the roasting pan. This allows for a beautiful even cooked rack of lamb.

Place the blade of the knife on the flat surface with the edge facing away from your body. Flip the knife and wipe the other side of the blade as well. Dip the knife in the solution and then take it out. Using a cloth soaked in the hot water solution, scrub the blade of the knife. Do it very lightly to prevent scratches. After you have removed visible dirt from the blade of your knife, clean the handle with soapy water. Rinse the knife thoroughly under running water. Dry the knife by using a clean dishtowel. Wash kitchen knives immediately after using them so that the food does not dry on their blades. It is never accepted to place your knife in a drawer without a plastic guard. Make sure that knives lying on flat surfaces are never covered with towels or napkins. After handling a knife, lay it down in a clear area with the blade and point away from the body and away from the edge of the table or cutting area. A knife guard is a rigged plastic sleeve that fully encloses the blade. A glass knife block sits on the counter offering convenient access when working and when safely putting knives away. A magnetic bar is a wall mounted magnetic bar design to hold knives firmly in place.

Grasp the knife by the handle allowing your thumb and index finger to rest on the blade for support. Before handling a knife, put a light to medium duty cut resistant glove on the hand opposite of the hand that holds the knife. The glove will stay on the hand until the knife has been cleaned and properly stored. Use the right knife for the right job. Keep it sharp.

    knife great boning comfortable grip quality sharp quickly buy handle

    At first glance I though this was a wildly over designed knife but it has become my favorite go-to for just about everything in kitchen. It is one of the sharpest knives that I have ever used. It is quite amazing, even my 13 year old daughter was comfortable using it. My large hands can grip the contoured handle with ease. It has a great feel and grips with greasy or oily hands. You must treat this knife with respect, it is razor sharp and the pointy tip can prick you if you are not paying attention. It is both a versatile tool for the kitchen and a great value at the same time. I would have probably given it 5 stars if the handle was in all black to easily blend with my other knife arsenal.
    This knife is no joke. This is a commercial quality knife that will last a long time and it does an absolutely fantastic job of deboning quickly with no waste. It is very durable and dishwasher safe.
    This 6" stiff boning knife was exactly what our chef asked for. Lightweight and versatile, it's super sharp out of the box edge is perfect for his needs.
    Mercer is well known for their quality made knives. The price compared to that quality is a steal. The knife cuts perfectly around hard, curved bones and the blade stays sharp. I would buy again!
    This is a great knife for beef! A Cost effective alternative to a knife service for a tool i use less often then most. The grip is very comfortable and makes for quick work.
    received quickly and it a perfect knife to fillet cod. Stays sharp and is easy to work with would definately buy this item again great buy
    This stiff boning knife is great quality. It's sturdy and holds up under heavy usage. The handle is comfortable and the red really makes it stand out.
    Great Mercer curved boning knife. What we really like about their knife line is cross-contamination. The knife stays put in the proper station and you don't have to worry about cutting meat and that knife used for cutting vegs.
    Great boning knife to be working with, an love the grip on it. Very durable an well made which is nice. Came to me just like it said it would an have not had any problems with it.
    I purchased this boning knife along with the Mercer chef's knife originally for culinary school. Not only were my classmates impressed but so were my teachers. Sometime later it's still a staple knife in my kitchen...just butterflied a pork loin and it came out perfect. For the great price.. can't beat it!
    A good solid boning knife, at great price. I can carve chickens all day with this comfortably. It sharpens easily and is comfortable to grip and does not slip even when wet. Highly recommend.
