I usually use two different sized serated knives for carving. However, I saw where someone said not to carve w/serated. I've also watch Sharon Z.'s videos and she uses a differet knife. Can someone recommend a brand and type of knife to use for carving and generall trimming of my cakes? I realize the size is probably a personal preference much like the large metal spatula over the smaller ones. I have many kitchen knives but they are very dull and not good for slicing, carving or even tearing anything and would really like to know what others use as I'm looking at purchasing something different.

Maybe if I give this a bump I'll get a response...

I have high quality Henkels steak knives that I find are perfect for carving, just the right size and very sharp. They are serrated, but the the teeth are very fine and close together.

I've carved with serrated knives and a bread knife. I won't call myself an expert, but they worked for me. I also don't freeze my cakes before carving either.
