A braai knife is a long, sharp knife used for cooking meat over a braai, which is a South African barbecue. It is typically made of stainless steel and has a wooden handle. The blade is typically between 10 and 12 inches long and is curved at the tip. This makes it ideal for slicing and cutting meat.
Here are some safety tips for using a braai knife:
- Always keep the knife sharp. A sharp knife is less likely to slip and cause an injury.
- Be careful when cutting meat on the braai. The heat from the braai can make the knife blade very hot, so be sure to use an oven mitt or glove to protect your hand.
- Never cut towards yourself. Always cut away from your body.
- Be aware of your surroundings when using a braai knife. Make sure there are no children or other people nearby who could be injured if the knife slips.
