Carvers We Covet
Gift registry–style carving knives look spiffy, but their dull blades make you saw furiously, mangling the turkey and squeezing out precious juice. But high-quality, razor-sharp slicers make carving effortless and yield Instagram-worthy turkey slices. We like these three: The Western-style Wüsthof Classic Ikon features an easy-to-wield 8-inch blade ($160,
amazon.com). The Shun Classic Hollow-ground Slicer with swirled
Damascus steel is handsome and glides through meat ($150, williamssonoma.com), and the Dexter Russell Sashimi Knife sports a precise
foot-long blade at a tasty price ($56, dexterrussellcutlery.com).
