Size pizza rocker knife
« on: December 19, 2012, 08:31:09 PM »
I am looking at a 20" pizza rocker knife at Amazon, though it might be a bit big. I've never used one of those before, just a big normal type of knife or a roller cutter. I looked but didn't find any at GI metal. I will handle 14" and 16" pizzas. Should I look for a smaller one?

I have the 20 inch one and I love it.  I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

I would think that the larger the knife the better control you will have...good call on the 20 incher.

I spoke a bit prematurely in my last post. I had a hard time finding anyone who would send me that particular rocker knife (American Metalcraft PKR20 Stainless Steel 20-Inch) outside the US -Amazon wouldn't, nor the seller - and it wasn't easy finding one in Europe either... Pizza rocker knives are nowhere to be found in Sweden at all - likely cause we rarely buy or eat pizza by slice here - so I was turning to a freight forwarder. In the end though, I found one being :D sold at eBay US who was willing to send it to me. It's costing me more than double, but I doesn't matter. It's my kitchen and I want that knife. ;)

Bob,

thank you for saying that you can help. It's very generous of you, and I will absolutely keep that in mind, would the need arise.

Merry Christmas!
